TOPIC: Differences between countries become less evident each year. Nowadays, all over the world, people share the same fashions, advertising, brands, eating habits and TV channels. What are the reasons? Do the advantages outweigh the disadvantages of this?
In the present world, there are no quite differences among countries, especially about fashion style, hobbies of the cuisine, TV channels and so on. In my opinion, this trend can be the consequence of the globalisation and modernization phenomenon in the 21[st] century, and in fact it is bringing both benefits and downsides to the society. In this essay, I will explore both sides of the argument followed by my own standpoint.
Undoubtedly, the strong interaction between nations plays an integral in changing the distinct culture and tradition of every region. In an age of thriving international transaction and tourism, many places must vary to suit global tendencies. For example, in anywhere worldwide, hotels are designed as western-style skyscapers; the construction of railway stations and airpots always follows the international norms; the information about products, indicators, even food menus are translated into English, the universally global language. The purpose of these actions is hopeful to make striking similarities for foreign tourists if they firstly visit a strange country, and everbody does not spend much time on accommodating to the new environment; businessmen can be easy to discuss commercial contracts without interpreters immidately. Furthermore, in some developing countries, the advantages of this trend improve living conditions of local residents. With the strict requirements of international organisations, an indigent or remote area is more likely to receive the investment from the government for the modernization of its traffic, airline, postal, healthcare and telecommunication systems, all of which can give a boost to the quality of daily life of the locals.
However, there is always a significant concern about negative influences of the phenomenon. The high-level resemblance means the eradication of cultural gap between nations, thus leading to the elimination of the national identify. Another instance is that when English, famous-brand fashions, McDonalds and rock music are prevalent and spreading out along the streets of a country, its indigenous language, traditional clothes, local cuisine and folk music will face the imminent threat of total disappearance.
In conclusion, the globalization has more positve considerable impacts on the life of both us and the world, but it also takes unexpected aspects of lossing old-traditional values. So, the governmental role is extremely necesarry in the constraint of the drawbacks.
