I think it's about finding a balance between your culture and applying it to the modern world. Some traditions do not make sense in this age and are best left to be remembered and not practiced.

i think it's good for all of us but... as we talk about culture, culture is not that easy to be change... that's culture, the way the people live...

Almost every culture could use some improvement. Superficial things, like style of cuisine, dress, etc., generally never need to change (though they always evolve over time), but some cultures have values that are horribly medieval (like "honor killings" etc.) Those cultures should seriously consider discarding their violent and extremely oppressive practices.

I think all cultures have room for improvement. Looking at the world it's obvious no one's gotten it quite right yet.

I believe that there is a better middle ground between the harshest and most lenient cultures that could benefit everyone. I don't think a culture should change simply because another thinks it is wrong, but rather it should change those practices that hurt its people as a whole.

I think that arranged marriages and violent rituals are obviously wrong. But, I do think that Americans should become more polite to eachother. So many other countries are so polite and grateful to eachother, but America can sometimes be snobby and ill-mannered. I should know, I live there! Lol.

I think Muslim Culture is the most strick out of cultures because as my friend says you need to have arranged marriages you have to stay with your own kind or your kids well grow up wrong is very strick that how it seems to me


Just letting you know, that's not religion, that's the culture of the region that your friend is from.


when talking about cultural relativism, the question is; when is it okay to interfere with the cultures of others?
a prime example of this would be the way in which rape cases amongst aborigine communities are being conducted in Australia.

I think...

... That some cultures should stay just to be they used to be. Simple as that.
Speaking in a way that all of you guys already experienced, Culture is Culture. It started that way, then why change it?

It's already your point of view if your culture is not that good enough. Hopefully, for me, I wish that my culture should stay to being what it is. ^_^

FGM should change, slavery should change, etc, but cultures shouldn't change if they aren't harming anyone

yeah, all cultures should change, they're all inside history and time. I think things can't just stop in time. We should always aim for the best we can do, and every time we reach a goal, there's another something to go for. Cultures, or civilizations, are just like simple lifes of people. We can't just get stuck in the past.

To tell you the truth you cant just up and change a culture its called a culture for a reason...Its been happing over many years now. Yes some should stop but then we get into the whole "were losing our very history that has made us what we are today" business. Some things will change little by little over time you just got to leave it be and give it time.
