CULTURE: Being Forgotten?

Change is shaped by many factors. Cultural change occurs as communities and households respond to social and economic shifts associated with globalization, new technologies, environmental pressures, armed conflict, development projects, etc. Change also results from deliberate efforts to influence values through changes in the law or government policy, often due to pressure from civil society. There are many examples of efforts to influence attitudes about race relations, the rights of workers and the use of the environment, to name three areas in which cultural values shape behavior.

When we talk about “culture” we often mean intellectual and creative products, including literature, music, drama, and painting. Another use of “culture” is to describe the beliefs and practices of another society, particularly where these are seen as closely linked with tradition or religion. But culture is more than that. Culture is part of the fabric of every society, including our own. It shapes “the way things are done” and our understanding of why this should be so.

“Culture… is… the whole complex of distinctive spiritual, material, intellectual and emotional features that characterize a society or a social group. It includes not only arts and letters but also modes of life, the fundamental rights of the human being, value systems, traditions, and beliefs.” Societies and cultures are not static. They are living entities that are continually being renewed and reshaped.

There are many examples of efforts to influence attitudes about race relations, the rights of workers and the use of the environment, to name three areas in which cultural values shape behavior.

New cultural definitions are formed through a process in which some segments of society promote change through advocacy and example, while others resist it. In other words, societies are not homogeneous and no assumptions can be made about a consensus on “cultural values.” Cultural values are continually being reinterpreted in response to new needs and conditions. Some values are reaffirmed in this process, while others are challenged as no longer appropriate.

But most of the Filipinos nowadays have forgotten our culture, due to the development of new technologies; people of today are too much dependent on it, that’s why they weren’t able to take a look back on their cultures and traditions. Like Larong Pinoy which is popular during “Baby boomers and Generation X’’. Unlike now at the year of Millennial, they are embracing the high-tech gadgets, computer, etc.

We as a student, a Filipino and a child of this nation wanted to inform you guys that we should bring back those cultures that disappear during modern development. Let us focus on the enrichment of our dying cultures, for the sake of the next generation who would inherit the cultures that we value and also let them experience what we had experience, as a part of molding them to be good members of our growing community.

Stop adopting and mimicking the cultures and traditions of others, instead find ways to help with the rebirth of our own cultures in the mind, heart, and souls of every Filipinos all over the world.

  1. We don’t need to forgot our own culture because we grow with the true meaning of a culture most of us value them and gave importance to them by remembering the own culture just like for a year

  2. R.A. 1256 – “Filipino Culture Remains Act”
    This is about preserving our own culture by exercising Filipino traditions and practices just like the old times. This law will require officials to create a month long provincial celebration in line with Buwan ng Wika (August). This has been practiced by most of schools and with this law not just the students but all citizen is encourage to participate in celebration of the event which may include programs like theatrical plays, competition that showcase Filipino abilities such as balagtasan, sabayang bigkas or poem writing, ethnic dance competition, larong Pinoy etc. Failure to comply with this law, the official responsible must fine 30,000 and his/her subordinates will have to render service that will benefit the province.

  3. Transnational- The Filipino Culture adapts to whatever it gets. Intellecl and creative products, including literature, music, drama, and painting are some of the things that evolves through advancement of technology and new discoveries. Thus, our culture is mixed up with different culture as well.

  4. Transnational- since this article talks about “Culture”. On this article they defined culture as beliefs and practices of another society, particularly where these are seen as closely linked with tradition or religion. So that’s why Transnational, we all know that the culture of the Filipinos aren’t pure, we have adapted the culture of other countries who invaded us.

  5. National – Maybe this article talks how our national Culture change with the influenced of other countries but when we said culture it is something who we are known or what represents us as a filipino.

  6. Republic Act. 5692
    “Cultural Preservation Act of 2018”
    This act was established in order to maintain and preserve the Philippine culture, arts, and values. It requires all private and public schools to practice Filipino traditions. This law includes the following:
    Article 1: To celebrate Buwan ng wika every month of August.
    Article 2: To held an activity in their respective institutions which may include programs like Palarong Pinoy, Theatrical plays, Ethnic Dance competitions, Balagtasan, Poem writing, Sabayan bigkas etc.
    Article 3: To encourage all the students to practice some of the Filipino dances and music in their PE course.
    Article 4: To those who will not abide this law must pay a fine of 30,000 – 50,000 PHP.

  7. Preservation of national culture of the Philippines.
    Declaration of policy: It is the policy of the State to protect, conserve, promote and popularize the nation’s historical and cultural traditions.
    When celebrating the buwan ng wika, ALL students are required to wear our national costume for that certain event.
    Offense: Students wearing other clothes than the specified clothing.
    Penalty for violation: Students are required to post a video in social media reciting the PANATANG MAKABAYAN, the video shall not be deleted for 1 year.

  8. Culture is dynamic. In a country like the Philippines, we must appreciate that we are multicultural in nature. We should respect and appreciate our own culture as well as co exist with other culture – unity in diversity.

  9. colonial mentality is within us a long time a ago, but loving our own country is the one that still bind us stogether,

    act of loving your own country is a must.

    in this case ALL filipino must attend or have a class that tacles of being a FILIPINO just like an ARMY course in other country, litteracy of being filipino – just to make sure that we will not forget about our culture,

    RA 555 – “Preservation of Filipino Culture”

    To maintain and preserve national culture of our country this law provides the help of some of our tribal group here in the Philippines to give 1 hour lectures about their lives in every elementary and high schools here in our country.

    All students are required to attend and listen to the lectures.

    Students who skips lessons will be given a violation report.

  13. Forgetting our own cultures, traditions and beliefs for the sake of globalization are not worth it for me, globalization is good we are able to exchange our own product from another country, used all kind of goods all over the globe, we are interconnected and bring the feeling of togetherness, we are more aware of their own style and further adopt them that eventually can lead to disregarding our own style. Culture helps us to achieve the progress, it is about showing our cultural identity, significance of our knowledge and the sense of self of every people, community and the country.

  14. Filipino culture is a big reflection of the history of our country. It passes from one generation to another. But nowadays, Filipinos find it easy to adapt other nation’s culture. Due to the development of new technologies and the fact that most of us idolize international artists more than our very own local artists. As globalization occurs, we should not forget our own culture. As a Filipino citizen, I believe that we can preserve our culture and at the same time, we can embrace globalization. Our culture is our identity, we can achieve globalization and innovation without forgetting it. I hope that embracing and enriching our dying culture is as easy as adapting and mimicking other nation’s culture and tradition.

    I do believe that change is very necessary when we aim for improvement. In today’s time, we oftern forget about our own culture because of modernization and globalization. We focus more on adapting cultures of other country instead of preserving and improving our own.
    Change is constant, and we can’t do anything about it, but we can do something about our culture. It is not necessary to forget our own culture when we experience globalization. In fact, we can use modernization and globalization as a tool to encourage our fellow countrymen to preserve and to remember all of our almost forgotten culture.

  16. Domingo, Ma. Nicole Frances – DEN183

    Forgetting our culture in exchange of globalization will not be worth it for me. Because if all we just want is to be connected with the world I think there is no need for us to forget about the culture that we know since we were born. Culture is one of the reason why we built ourselves, culture has been a big part of everyone. And by connecting to the other countries for us to be able to integrated to them. I think there should be something unique that they can see from us, and that is the culture that made us who we are.

    Another thing is when we achieved being connected to the world but there is no culture in our system, what are we gonna do? Are we gonna adopt their culture since we already forgot the culture that we had. Is that gonna make difference? Is that gonna make our country known by the world? My point is, we know that many countries love the philippines and even the filipinos by knowing the culture that we have and we can witness the foreign people embracing our culture whenever they visit our country. So I think if we want to interact with the other countries we should still carry the culture that made our country intact for us to be known. Because who would be proud of the philippine culture? Ofcourse us, the filipinos.

    I believe in preserving my culture. My parents were born and raised in the Philippines. They gave me a culture that is stamped in my beliefs and wired in my brain.
    Culture is the characteristic of group of people defined by everything such as language, religion, lifestyle etc. Different people in different societies have different culture but they also have some similarities. Culture is the identity of a group of people living in specific place; they have their own sketch of life what the culture says they follow that.

  18. Ramos, Katreena Ann A.
    Den 183

    forgetting our culture for the sake of globalization is not worth it for me why should we ignored our culture when our culture is inborn to us and it is not a problem for globalization because when we still not born in this world it has already have a culture already and it must be loved and proud of it. our culture is very important to us to be known or familiarized to the others and we should not be ignored it.

  19. Instead of the word “forgotten” I think it’s more applicable to use the word “evolving”. And instead of the word “change” I personally like more the word “developing.” The terms evolving and development are both words that synonymous to the term change but this terms meant “positive changes”. Filipino cultures are not being forgotten instead these cultures are growing and growing in time. As the world faces the rapid flow of innovations, Filipino cultures finds a ways to adjust and adopt these fast changes. Culture is not perishable. Culture possesses versatility because of globalization. Wouldn’t it be more fun if we people consider the world borderless because we are sharing all cultures in the world? I can imagine people’s harmony having multicultures because it creates diversity in wherever you are.

    Globalization is good in our country but we can’t forget just to be globalized, our culture represents the uniqueness of our country to the other country. our country has its own way of expressing our own style of fashion and other stuff.

  21. Culture is a particular society that has its own beliefs, ways of life, art and etc. In today’s generation, many of the Filipinos are easily influenced by different traditions in different country. It is not bad for every person to make a change for their common good and have an easy life but it is not necessary to forget all the culture and tradition that we know since we born. It is easy for some Filipinos to adopt different culture and traditions. Filipinos have so many beliefs and traditions but some of it is from another country because Filipinos have high hopes in things like whenever they encounter a beliefs like a tradition, if it resulted to good way and it gives them an easy way of living in their daily lives they adopt it and pass it from generation to generations

    Changes may have been mostly from positive to negative, but those changes will never be permanent. Those are just mere influences acquired through time. As always, a Filipino’s original morals and principles will never be ignored and forgotten. Filipinos will always be known for warm hospitality, close family ties, love for freedom, bravery, humility and hard-work. I believe that in these days wherein modernization claims superiority over traditionalism, one can surely differentiate a Filipino from the past and a Filipino in the present times. But despite the changes in assets and characteristics, traits from the past still exist in in the heart of every Filipino.

    Globalization may have a great contribution to the development of the Philippines but there can be some disadvantages we can get from it and one of them is that the culture we grew up with are getting forgotten bit by bit. Our culture define who we are as a Filipino and forgetting it makes it look like we are also forgetting who we are. Globalization and Culture may be a contrast to be together but we can develop through globalization not sacrificing our culture by instilling to the new generations what the culture in the Philippines we grew up with and how it makes us the “Filipinos” that other countries known about us.

    As a humankind, millenial, and a student, Globalization is one of the current issues here in our country, although it can also contribute to the development in our country. Instead of following the right culture that our ancestors taught us, we tend to follow our own way of using the right definition of culture. Yes, we all have rights to do what we want, but in a correct way, seeing those people who are just only thinking about theirselves is a problem. Trends and Influences nowadays taught about what Globalization it is, so it both have an advantage and disadvantage and it depends on how we could apply our learning about it.

  24. Javier, Ivan Kim E. INF 182

    Globalization is the idea of slowly shifting to a fully integrated world. Some advantages of globalization are people all over the world now have the access to communicate with one another. People can also adopt each others culture, belief and practices. Advance technology also create a big impact and change in every culture such as gadgets, machines, and computers. Some disadvantages of globalization are people forget to embrace their own culture. They always choose what is in and what is acceptable to the society. People change their own style and beliefs because of influence from the others. It is sad that the culture or tradition of every nation slowly forgotten because of globalization. We must embrace and develop our culture because it represents who and what we are.

    I do believe that globalization helps the society with regards to the improvement of our technology, but not in a way that we, Filipino people have forgotten the main root of what really shaped us as a person. We also must know the true value of our culture and its importance to the next generation. Because these days, millennial generation are more looking forward with the globalization that they forgot to emphasize the true meaning and importance of our culture and traditions.

    Globalization represents the global integration of international trade, investment, information technology and cultures. As a student globalization have advantage and disadvantage to us. It can contribute to people by making our life easier because of the invented technology that make the task easier. its been popular in every country because of its good advantages in any purposes. But the disadvantage is we forgot what we have during these past years during our ancestors life. because of the trends or influences we adopt by the other country. We forgot what our country’s practices, culture and beliefs. But still we need to give value our culture, practices, traditions and beliefs here in our country and we know what is the difference between the past and today’s life. So that we can identify what is the advantages and disadvantages of globalization.

    Humans never stuck to same cultures, ethics and traditions. If we would have stuck to one then the whole world would have become consistent society. During evolution, humans created cultures, ethics and traditions and even forgot them. The cultures, ethics and traditions we practice are either the one of the best or have become known recently. The best of them were preserved and gifted by our ancestors. Similarly, there were improvement to stop traditions which were harmful and not beneficial for next generations.

    I think we should continue doing so. We should take it as responsibility to pass the best of them to next generation and also contribute to it. They give individual a sense of belonging which can improve their motivation, health, and happiness. They also give everyone a good social life and environment.

    Our culture gives us an identity and helps build our character. The cultural values shared across our community or social group, give us a sense of belonging towards society. Our culture unites us and gives us a sense of security. In this globalized world, cities are becoming replicas of each other, and people are joining into fake stereotypes; gone are the unique cities that carry so much history and culture in every corner, lost are the enriching cultural differences and specificity that make a society uniquely what it is. We’re losing one of the things that count the most: our identity, the uniqueness in us, that which makes us special and allows us to stand out from the crowd. Treasure the notion of a global citizen, but still that doesn’t mean letting go of our unique cultures.

    We all know that every one of us Filipinos know our very own culture since we learned it when we are in primary level, although we observed that everything has changed due to the globalization. I can say that our culture right now is transnational that refers to shared values or ways of life from cross countries that embrace cultural diversity, multi-ethnicity, multi-languages etc. as a result of globalization. We are just adopting the culture of the other countries to our country and also our country’s culture adopted by the other countries. I conclude that our country “didn’t really forgot” our own culture yet our culture is evolving as time goes by.

    Is forgetting our culture worth it when we aim for globalization?
    I think globalization is the one that makes us forget about our culture instead of us wanting to aim for globalization, as we continue to mimic and be “trendy”, we forget the customs that were taught to us adolescents by the adults of the past generations. Is it fine to lose our culture that we Filipinos have nurtured and developed over the past decades, in exchange for a country’s culture? definitely no. As we take part in globalization, we should instead make a name for ourselves, for the sake of the Filipino Culture. We should “modernize” the practices of the past generations, as it proves to have a positive effect on the youth of today. Instead of adapting to other countries’ culture, we should establish our own “trend” in order to become leaders of globalization, in which i think, is what the youth aims to do, to be “modern” and “updated”

  31. Candaza, Aliah C. INF182

    In my thought, it is somehow worthy for the country’s culture to be changed based on globalization. Since we had been conquered by foreign countries for hundreds of years, we cannot change that fact that we easily acquire the culture of other countries. As it does benefit a person or society in improving many things, particularly through the development of technology. But as technology improves, the activities or work of an individual do change through time that leads to neglecting thy own culture, which is a mean of disregarding your nationalism or your own group. Culture is the representation of a society’s way of living; it is the beliefs and traditions, a trademark that differs from other countries, an active living history that we inherit from our sire. How come are we going to sustain this culture if globalization does blur our belief and livings? Indeed, culture does gradually modify as people do change.

    Globalization is perhaps a mean streak in every Filipino lifestyle,
    We continue to embrace an entity for what we think would suit our identity, our very own facade
    and most importantly, what molds us to a certain kind of being.
    Filipinos are immersed in different traditions and cultural behaviors around the world.
    As technology continues to rise..The severe homesickness or what we call “nostalgia” fades away.
    Technology’s inevitable run cannot be stopped,it is a torch-passing turn of events in which a particular thing changes to its entirety.
    But let’s not forget what we cherished before,the lessons we learned from in the past few years of our lives.
    Learn to appreciate small things, a simple sticky note can do(so to speak)’cause these days,millennials are
    totally hooked in different kinds of human interventions and gadgets such as smartphones, laptops, tablets just to name a few. Most of them neglect our past traditions and beliefs.
    Globalization and technology are the main culprits here.
    These two are the work-horses of innovation and life-changing aspects.

Although its has been fraught with their contrasting results, also there are many of them are strongly believes that increased globalization that has been harmful to the environment.

    Culture as our foundation of what we are now by growing up with our traditional culture and practices and these culture shape us to what we are today and is very knowledgeable to ourselves. As the time goes by, many generations learned their particular cultures but along with time is changing and these are the culture that we adopt to other culture and refers to as cultural change, these changes has good advantages to our community and also there is a bad advantages about these changes. These changes leads to adopting to the new culture and is like replacing it to our old way of practices. It is good to be innovative to such things for the better ways but also we should not forget of what we came from and learned from and that is our own culture that brings us to where we are standing at a meaningful purpose. Let ourselves learn the changes of culture but don’t let it change our own uniqueness style of traditional culture. Let us not forget our culture, forgetting our culture is like turning back to our roots of ourselves. So let us preserve the colorful culture of our own that makes us who we are.

    Change is constant, so don’t expect if your saddest fear comes creepin in, that you never loved our culture or valued or cherished or anything.

    Regarding to the question, we should not forget our culture. Instead of forgetting it, we should innovate it and share it to everyone until everyone appreciate and remember it truthfully. For the reason, that everything is connected with everything. Let’s say a minor accident in a remote part of the world can have a big impact on our lives. Moreover, from the difficult things you are experiencing right now can be considered as a test for you only so that when the time comes, it can turn into something beautiful and completely change your life into a best day of your life. We will not develop and become like this if not because of our ancestors’ love for our culture, so let us not waste their deeds and sacrifices. We should enrich it with more love and efforts respectively in order to make everyone appreciate it. Always never forget to lookback on where you come from. Just like what Dr. Jose Rizal’s famous quotations says, “He who does not know how to look back at where he came from will never get to his destination.”

    Let’s band together and start practicing looking back at where we came from regularly, so that our ancestors will be proud to us even they are in the afterlife.

    Our culture is our identity, it has been passed down to us from the past generations. Globalization is great, it creates millions of opportunities from both the economic and industrial aspect. But there is another side of a coin, with globalization, we lose our real identity and our culture, we are becoming just one of the clones of the great countries like the US or Korea. We are losing one of the things that count the most: our identity, the uniqueness in us, that which makes us special and allows us to stand out from the crowd. We should never sacrifice our culture for the sake of what we so called progress. It is better to have a progress by being who we are and not compromising to the trends of this world.

    A very interesting work because our culture is the most important in our country because if we dont have a culture we will not called filipino.

    Me as a filipino we dont need to forgot our culture because it can help us in our globalization and our culuture is not a hindrance in globalization.

  38. Culture is a way of life shared by a group of people living in one place or society. It shares the same tradition, values and beliefs of every person in a society. But since we are in 21st century time, new technology, new habits, the new culture or the so-called “globalization” arise. By means of globalization we are interconnected and interdependent with other countries. The issue of globalization has effects on the environment, politics, culture, and economic development. As we can see we are really influenced by other country, it can be seen on the food we eat, the clothes we wear, the movies or shows that we watched, the social media and the gadgets we used, the language that we commonly used “English”, although it is important to be globally competitive but because of this we sometimes forgot our native language. But to be honest, globalization made our life much easier and comfortable, although it has negative effects like it changed some of our cultures and traditions. But we can see it improved our way of living. Hence, globalization neither good or bad it will be beneficial or bad based on how we deal with it.

    Globalization is a great idea therefore the nation is becoming successful.
    It is also a way to forget our culture because our eyes and mind are focused on the trends,
    just like the new dance craze instead of dancing our cultural dance.
    Most of us are very active to social media and also attentive when it comes to new trends because we don’t want to be left or to be old fashion and we likely to follow what is new.
    For me it is not bad to be trendy but we have to value or make sure that we did not forget our culture and we must
    let’s do remarkable things that can rise or help our culture to remain unique and unforgettable.
    Globalization can build a way to keep our culture just like promoting it in social media to spread it nationwide.

    I hope that more people come to realize the importance of valuing our tradition and culture. Our culture is something we should take pride in. We should cherish and celebrate our culture rather than forgetting it completely. I personally love the new concepts, trends and ideas since it shows how people’s minds have changed over a period of time. Change is the law of nature. If a society wants to progress, it has to adapt. This doesn’t mean people have to forget their roots completely. We can still appreciate our culture and traditions. Culture helps me identify who I am and what my values are.

    Culture is the identity of a country or a tribe. It is from our ancestors dating way, way back. While globalization is the process of interacting with people, government, and companies. Globalization is the melting pot of different cultures and nationalities participating in the global arena. The cons of globalization is: the price of your product will be lessen. The pros are: you will be sure that there is a market where you can sell your product to and you can also buy a product with a cheap price. For me, culture doesn’t need to vanish because of globalization. In fact, we can pass down our culture by globalization. Pinoy culture will not need to disappear but it can even be more known in different countries.

  43. Waje, Richer marie INF182 The river changes and so do you.The different cultures from the different country spread throughout the whole world because of the modern development every country has a varied cultural influences despite all of these influences. It is clearly seen in the way of life, beliefs, and customs.It is good for us as a part of the society to benefit a knowledge to the other culture, tradition and beliefs that a country has, but nowadays most of the people now specifically us Filipinos tend to adopt the other culture because we more appreciated the other country’s way of life. The Philippines “larong pinoy” caught my concern that is already unknown for the generation x babies because they most prefer to play online games than playing outdoor pinoy games. Sad but true the inflation of modern development, the new trends, the old style, traditions, and culture that we own is already forgotten now by most of the people.
    Is forgetting our culture worth it when we aim for globalization ?
    The globalization may benefit us towards the easiest way of living by the use of technology.But forgetting our culture to aim globalization is really not worth it because our own culture has a significance of our country’s history and recognition. We must live treasuring what we already have we may adopt and still globalize but we must still not forget, rebirth our own culture.

It will remind us that we are part of a history that defines our past, shapes who we are today and who we are likely to become.

    For me, forgetting our culture is not worth it when we are aiming for globalization, because forgetting your own distinct culture is like neglecting your citizenship as a filipino. Yes, we have to adopt what this generation brings to us people like high technologies etc, but, to forget your own culture to aim globalization really a big deal.

    Take a look back to the good old days where you are very sweaty but indeed happy playing larong pinoy like tumbang preso, agawan base and etc. These games probably helped you to become who you are right now. What i’m pointing is that, our culture is a big part on how we grow up as person, so do not forget your culture when aiming for globalization. Globalization may have a big impact on the development of this country(Philippines) but you have to consider that the culture is somehow the identity of a country.

    Girls, do you remember yourself playing chinese garter or ten-twenty when you were in your elementary days or even during your high school years? Nakakamiss tumalon diba?
    The cyber age has drawn people of all ages to play online games and it became so addictive that toys we were playing became too old school. Our outdoors are now emptied because kids today are so busy loading their online games inside the computer shops.

    What is your phone doing now? Before i was reading pocket books but right now i’m reading status update. The book i failed to open had been a novel set in the last few years because of spending my whole day scrolling in my newsfeed.

    Culture is not dying, it is just changing. There’s nothing wrong when technological devices comes out. Like saving dying patients because of the help of machines. There’s nothing wrong with it. We are the problem here. The one who is using it. We should recognize limitations. Our dependency on technology comes with dangers.

    Take a look back to the old days where you are happy when you are under the sun playing those larong pinoy. Stop aiming for globalization when you forgetting your own culture.

    Our culture is impossible to be forgotten for it represents our very own land. By globalization, we understand that technology brings the outside world closer to us. Many people think that if the trend keeps going on with the influence of the new generations, the cultural identity will be lost forever. But this can’t be true all the time. Globalization has positive influence on society because it give us a chance to represent our culture. It also helps us learn and and explore different culture by not forgetting our own. Culture are the values that cannot be disappeared just because of globalization.

    This is the problem with our country. This is called transnational culture.This refers to shared values or ways of life from cross countries that embrace cultural diversity, multi-ethnicity, multi-languages which causes globalization. But even it may be classified as globalization, it is not right to forget our own. Change is important, but it must be an improvement of our own and not completely forgetting of what we truly are.

    The culture of a people is their identity as it affords them due recognition. It is their underlying distinguishing factor from other peoples and cultures. In fact, all societies across the globe have various and divergent cultures which they cherish and practice. In order for a society to operate functionally and effectively, they must ensure and maintain strict and constant adherence to the various components of their culture.

    Maybe for others it’s worth it to forget the culture for globalization, but for me it’s not good because our culture is one of the reasons why we are still living and having this life. I will never change my thoughts that culture is very important in developing myself and I will never choose to forget my culture or our culture. Culture makes all men gentle -Menander

    Forgetting our own culture just for us to be recognized globally is not worth it. We should be recognized globally because of our culture. Changing or replacing our own culture just for the other countries or race’s acceptance. We should preserve our culture to be share among the world. We can’t just change something we are used to just to be accepted globally. The Philippines should be known for its culture. Not just adapt it from other countries. Our culture is our identity to be known.

    I guess colonization is the main culprit of this mess. If different countries didn’t invade us in the first place, then our own identity will not perish. Hell, even the name “Juan”, a name that represents Filipinos, originally came from Spain. As of right now, our culture is in the brink of extinction. The only trend that millennials are bringing up these days that I really like is using our own language which is “baybayin” and its good. We Filipinos already lost the preservation battle long ago. “What do you think of Filipinos? and they say ” Oh, the Mexicans of Asia?” and it’s terrible. We all suffer from the “colonial mentality” and we don’t want to admit it.

  53. Culture for me should not be forgotten, because culture define where we came from, culture molds us on what we are today, Culture can give people a connection to certain social values, beliefs, religions and customs. It allows them to identify with others of similar mindsets and backgrounds. Culture can provide an automatic sense of unity and belonging within a group and allows us to better understand previous generations and the history of where we come from. If we don’t have culture we can’t act in a certain manner because culture is something to inherent, therefore for every human being is a cultural being. Since globalization is the process of interaction and integration between people, companies, and governments worldwide without culture we can’t achieve having the connection with other people or interact with them.

We owed something truly big from where culture we belong for the reason of, culture is linked to what and who we really are simple as that. Meanwhile, some of us tend to fail possesing the qualities, beliefs and values because of this so called “globalization”. It’s evident nowadays that we were being swayed by globalization and modernization. It is really painful to see children playing all day all night with their technologies instead of playing outdoor activities. Even we, were
    being mesmerized by cultural changes. We are now associated with social stuffs, internet and media. Yes, globalization makes our life extreme easier than before who doesnt want that? Its objective is just for our own betterment. And when in fact there is no bad thing about it but, us. Its on how we embrace the two; culture&globalization. Some are being controlled by the globalization while the culture in him gets dominated and vice versa. Just a reminder– both are important but culture is the most! Culture is the most important of our lives. If culture is within us then, you’ll able to build strong relationship with others.

    As a tertiary student, I think it is NOT VERY WORTH IT TO FORGET ABOUT OUR CULTURE and where we really came from just to aim globalization. I definitely agree with this article that as a Filipino citizen we should encourage our fellow citizens to enrich and enhance our own culture instead of replicating other cultures. Yes, globalization does have some benefit for us. It portrays a significant role in the development of our economy and association among people whether technological, cultural, political and in an economic way. Globalization includes buying of foreign products, tolerating or being influenced by other foreign countries’ literature, music, movies instead of listening to OPM (Original Pilipino Music), watching films created by Filipinos and reading books or novels written by Filipinos. This is one way to show the loss of culture due to globalization that recreates our culture through various pressures and influences. It leads us to progression but also evaporation of our own cultures, traditions and beliefs. Change is indeed gradual but our Filipino culture must remain constant.

    Let us save our dying and fading culture because it us what embodies us, Filipinos. The Filipino culture represents our nation and symbolizes our way of life, it is what makes us one. Don’t let globalization take our own identity away. Instead of imitating other foreign countries’ culture, together let’s start rejuvenating the cultures and traditions we, Filipinos have. We are born in the Philippines and it is our responsibility as a Filipino to manage on keeping our culture alive.

    Nowadays, Globalization is our way to extend social relations to other nation but it is not worth it to forget our culture when we aim for globalization. We Filipinos have our own culture with unique identity and unique tradition. It tells other countries who we are and what our country have. Not forgetting our culture means not forgetting where we came from. Our culture also shows our solidarity as we all know that Filipinos are known for having unity, that’s why it is important to remain it.

    Is culture have been forgotten? I think it’s not but some Filipinos forgot it because of the modern technology today. It affects our culture and I think we must value the cultures of our country, because it was a big part of our lives and also culture is a lifeblood of a vibrant society, expressed in the many ways we tell our stories, celebrate, remember the past, entertain ourselves, and imagine the future. Our creative expression helps define who we are, and helps us see the world through the eyes of others. Also, I think if we don’t have a culture we will not experience the different kinds of things like celebrating important events, the languages we have learned, having the characteristics of being a Filipino just like being a respectful, hospitable, light-hearted, generous, loving and caring, being helpful to others. Also these characteristics have been forgotten, because of the technology just like students like me, children and other people forgotten to be a Filipino citizens because some people have bad traits that we shouldn’t have as a Filipino. In todays generation, the culture has been forgotten but some are still doing it and for me I want to go back in the culture I see in my childhood, grew up with my parents, some I have experience it, and the times when I was happy with just a simple thing. I wasn’t happy in our environment today, because there are lots of problems and issues happening in our country, and our country today is not a safe place unlike before, for me it is a safe place. But because of the technology our culture and people have been vanished and there are lots of changes in our country. Technology also have bad influence to all people because their are lots of cases happening because of the technology today. So our culture, must cherished it and don’t forgot it.

    We can’t stop the evolution of technologies and by evolving we are living in the future now meaning that we can’t stop the changes in culture. If we can’t change we can’t improve but im not saying that we should forgot where we came from and Im not saying that its ok to forgot. My point is even if we bring back the culture it will not be the same there are lot of changes now happening and we are part of it because we want to create a bright future for the next generation same as our ancestors do to make a bright future that we currently living. The only way to remember the past is to look and study the history that is the only way to show our respect and recognition to the culture. we can’t be stay the same forever we should embrace the changes and live it to allow improvements to our society. Because not all the things we used to live in the past will still be the same in the future.

    Culture is all about differences of a thing in different people and specifically, it is a manifestation of human intellectual or knowledge. In other words, culture dictates human interventions for what position are we going to be in an activity, whether an observer or a participants. Our lives are filled with culture that help us people to understand how, when and where those things take place or may happen.

    Culture is always needed, forgetting it just to aim for globalization is not a solution to make it worth. According to Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, there’s a need for us humans to fullfil those other requirements in the pyramid before self-actualization.

    In order we can reach the top of it, the culture help us. Culture is very beneficial for us, if we don’t a culture itself, I think we cannot make a stand for our own progress and build a just and new way of living.

    Culture doesn’t die, it just simply change. Culture is a dynamic that change over the period of time. Yet, the globalization hit an impact for all changes in our society, and still culture is always adaptable in any changes. That is why, I don’t believe in forgetting our culture for aiming globalization is worth it just simply because culture is always a part of it.

    We should not forget about our culture, in fact we should preserve it so that the traits of being a filipino that was taught to us by our ancestors will remain for us to teach to our future children

    We need to avoid the adapting of other countries culture because by adapting their culture we tend to forget our own culture and that will lead to the loss of our culture time will come in the future that this culture of ours will no longer be remembered nor practice by other Filipinos in the future, we need to preserve our culture because this defines us as a true Filipino

  62. Culture is what defines you, culture is something that we used to lived and follow through out the years of our existence. Yes, changed is good, globalization cannot be stop, but always remember that cultures can always be preserved when you want too.
    Due to continous progress we are facing in the world. We believed that change is inevitable. We always tend to say that ” it’s 2018, we have to move forward”. But for me, yes it is true that we have to move forward and adapt the present changes, the modern technologies, the luxury of living and etc. But still, the moral values such as bowing to the elders, answering with po and opo or respecting the elders beliefs and outlooks in life because they were able to lived in time where we don’t experience what they have experienced.
    Because I believed the culture that we have born with is not something we have to forget while aiming for a globalization because it is part of ourselves and it is one of our wealth that no one can destroy if we choose to keep it.

    Forgetting our culture will never be worth it when we aim for globalization. If a society wants a progress, it has to adapt but it does not mean that we should forget our roots completely. Globalization is a natural evolution of mankind and it is a way to learn and explore different culture. So, why not use globalization to give us a chance to introduce our culture in front of the whole world and give all people from different societies a chance to explore our culture. Culture is open to change and acceptance. Our world is evolving and so is people but it does not mean that culture should be forgotten because of globalization. Change is the law of nature. We may have evolved with the changing times but still our culture and traditions are embedded deeply in our society. I hope more people come to realize the importance of our culture because it is something we should take pride in and that we should cherish rather than being completely forgotten.To protect our identity, protecting our culture is a must.

  64. Culture is one of the most important aspect in living. Culture is diverse, so it means that there are a lot of types and classifications of culture. Each country, each groups has their own culture because it is unique. But forgetting culture for globalization is worth it? For my opinion it may be yes and it may be no, maybe yes because aiming for globalization means already the hightech world it means the most hightech we are the more technology we have the more we can aim for globalization the more we can be modernisize. More technology means less work, its just simple the more they develop technology the less hassle work for people will be. In the other side no its not definitely not, each one of us developed by our own culture imagine a world without culture, world without happening in short. Nowadays in our generation culture are being forgotten because of the innovation and invention of people. For me it must not be forgotten because for me it is the “life of life”.

    As part of the Millennial group, I can say that I became dependent on change. However, I accept both fresh and old ideas since I am a “product” of the so-called Baby Boomers. I was raised by the norm of my parents which is classic and old school. And so, I was given the opportunity to try the things they were able to enjoy during their childhood such as being “street children” who would play from morning ’til afternoon with neighborhood friends. I adjust to old and new concepts in our society. I don’t just settle for what’s in the past. If I need to change the way of living, I would as long as it’s morally acceptable.

    I think there is no problem of being trendy because people nowadays like to be more trendy and I’m not gonna lie, I like to be trendy sometimes.

    If our society is associate with new technologies why we don’t persue them to use it as a guide to study our Culture? Search for our Cultures information and I think technologies can help us to determine some of our Cultural things like fossils, “mga sinaunang mga bagay” like Manunggul Jar found in our mainland which is Philippines, and some of our Cultural things is our Museum right now and we can visit it anytime we want and we can bring the “generation x babies” in our Museum just to teach or educate them about our Culture.

We should take it as responsibility to pass the best of them to next generation and also contribute to it. They give individual a sense of belonging and security.

We can’t deny the benefits it gives specifically with the use of modern technologies which makes everything easier for us. However, we tend to forget our culture as a result of being too much dependent on it. As one of those young filipino who had a best childhood and experienced different filipino culture such as larong pinoy, I feel sorry for young filipinos nowadays who never experienced that. We are blinded by the idea of using too much technology to connect with the world and at the same time forget about our own culture. We should value our culture because it serves as our identity and as a youth, it’s our chance and responsibility to rebirth our culture to be passed to the next generations.

    Culture serves as the reflection of a country. What you do and how you do it represents the environment you lived in. Nowadays culture is being forgotten but I do believe that culture must not be forgotten. Millennial depends on technology, they prefer convinience rather than physical work. This is a product of globalization. It is the state of being interconnected with the world. It inlcudes adaptation since it is influential. Because of this we are able to connect with the world we adopt what they say, what and how they speak, move, groove and even their cusine and wardrobe. Globalization is a good thing in fact it is a ladder to success and improvement but isn’t it dilapidated to forget where we start and what we had before? They say there is always room for improvement but that does not necessarily mean that you’ll have to leave everything behind and start over again. Looking at some Filipino who completely imitate foreigns and act like they don’t know anything that we call “very filipino” makes me cringe. We like to be connected, we aim for globalization but how are we going to achieve this if we will forget our very own culture. Leaving culture behind is like forgetting yourself and trying to imitate others. Forgetting who we really are or simply forgetting our culture is not worth it because what we are right now is the product of what we have before. We must use it to build a bigger room for improvement. We must not forget our culture and save it for future generations.

    As a filipino who grew up playing our street games and listening to old OPMs, I can say that the culture that I grew up in is not entirely forgotten. Even today I can still see the children in our neighborhood playing and enjoying our cultural games.

    It’s true, most people would rather look at their phones than even go outside their homes, but that doesn’t mean that everything should be blamed entirely to technological advancement or globalization. First and foremost, these things are the reason why communication is easier done with a loved one far out our homes. It’s the reason why the mortality rate has keep on decreasing, it’s the reason why we live our lives with less fear of what the fear-stricken tomorrow can bring.

    In the grand scheme of things, change is still both necessary and inevitable. It might not be easy but at some point it’s still possible to preserve our culture despite the the wave of technological advancement. If only we put more effort into educating the younger ones of not only our own experiences but the actual spree that the, for example, Larong Pinoy brings instead of pointing our fingers on things that contribute to our leisure lives right now, we’ll be able to pass on the interest and in time, appreciation for those that are, as we call it in our country, “Tatak Pinoy.”

    I agree that we should bring back the cultures that disappear during modern development. Culture shapes us on what are our roles we have in the society. As said in the article “culture is not static” it changes and we adapt to it quickly because the world is changing fast. Culture has been a big part of who we are and sometimes by seeing those culture you could tell that person is from this country. Culture represents you or culture is your identity. So we must be proud of own culture and still practice it in our everyday lives because we shape our culture, culture shapes us and we rely to it even today in this contemporary world.

  72. Our country is indeed trying not be left out by other countries around the globe resulting for almost everyone of us to go with the flow on the word ‘change’.
    But then, we can’t deny the fact that some of us, Filipinos, really forgot our culture.
    Is culture worth forgetting for the globalization we aim? Obviously not.
    We are what we are today because of the culture that being past from our ancestors. We, Filipinos, are known Filipinos because of our culture. Our culture serves as our identity to differentiate ourselves from other races.
    When a Filipino is in abroad, and he heard someone speaking in Filipino, he will know that that someone is a Pinoy or might be in the Philippines. He will know that it was a ‘kababayan’ who might be there to work for his family.

    In that simple thing, one can know who that man might be. Our culture became our uniqueness from other nation. And yet, some of us shows that they haven’t met culture yet.
    We are trying to keep our country on track of globalization that we forget to look back from where we start and who we really are.
    We are so fond of the things from other country instead of supporting our own products. We are mimicking other country, but why we can’t do what some of them do to preserve their culture?
    Following trends, keeping up for globalization and trying not to be left out by other country. Yes, it was good to be part of the growing change in this world yet, we shouldn’t let that to forget what molds us and who we are.

    Its not worth to forget our culture like nothing just to attain globalization, aiming for our future while forgetting how things are usually done will get us nowhere. Culture is not only about letters or word. it is our way of life, rights of humanity, the beginning and the present. Culture is something to be protected, reshape and rebirth while progressing, this is possible in any way if we practice our ethics rather than forgetting or worst erasing it in our nations way of living. Culture is the spirits of our country thy sense of oneness of the people, it is our identity and difference to other person. I believe change, development and striving for better is important but rather than forgetting and erasing ones culture why we just adjust and improving our culture in the certain era while being practice our rich culture.

    In my opinion, we know that globalization is process of interaction between different group of people and through this our country change, even our way of life but it doesn’t mean that we have to forget our own traditions and culture because it represents our uniqueness from other countries. In addition, globalization has a disadvantages that may affect each one of us, so instead of focusing on being globalized why don’t we go back to the good old times and try to practice and share to others our culture and tradition.

  75. The relationship between culture and development should be clarified and deepened in constructive and practical ways.

  76. For me, we don’t need to forget our culture just for the sake of globalization. Our culture needs to be preserved because it is our identity. Ourselves represents our country. The way we talk, eat, dress. All of that defines us as a member of the society that we are living in. It is our unique self that will make the country grow. Nowadays, it’s very sad to see that if we consider something from overseas as a right thing to do. For example is, the way american dress. By seeing them, Filipinos usually thinks that “Oh. That’s the right way to dress!” and it’s very disappointing because we are starting to forget ourselves. We are slowly being conquered by our own will.

    A world that is always changing. Landscapes, faces and technologies. Everything is changing, always changing and improving, but that doesn’t mean we have to change everything including our culture. The article is an eye opener for us youth or Millennials, it’s true that our culture is slowly dying and we are forgetting about our past or where we came from. In our generation technology is very dominat and we can never live without it, but the truth is, we are eaten by technologies and our generation is the out come. “We are improving”, yes we are improving at the same time we are forgetting, forgetting what we truly are and our identity. We should improve for the better not for the worse, we can modernize our culture because we can not stop changing. That’s why change is unstoppable, it’s for us to improve that’s why we can not afford to exchange our culture to globalisation, but we can improve our culture through globalisation.

  80. Culture is very dynamic. It is susceptible to change, as a result, people tend to embrace that change. As technology develops and trends fluctuate, old traditions and culture are affected. Some opt to retain it, but others forgot. We should preserve our culture in order for future generations to also know their very roots. And as we adapt to a vast changing world, we must not also forget where we all came from and where we began to form the societies of today.

    Filipino culture for me is one of the biggest impact in each every one of us. It help us to grow in our own self and help us to understand what’s the importance of our own culture in our society. Its okay to adapt some cultures from other countries but we should not forget our own culture because this is why other people from other countries love our country because we embrace our own culture we love the fact that we Filipinos still looking forward to our own culture. As time goes by globalization arise but for me globalization is not the reason for us to forget our own culture

  82. Tesado, Lourdes N. DMD (DEN183)
    Culture is said to be vigorous, and somehow in the modern world where globalization takes its part, losing and replacing some parts of our culture is inevitable. Change is the law of nature. I personally love the new concepts, trends and ideas since it shows how people’s minds have changed over a period of time. Culture is open to change and acceptance unlike traditions which are simply carried on from one generation to another. If a society wants to progress, it has to adapt. This doesn’t mean people have to forget their roots completely. We can still appreciate our culture and traditions. Culture helps me identify who I am and what my values are.

    No matter what the cost is, one should never forget their own culture. We cannot deny that change is part of nature. Although, we should always respect where we came from. Our own cultures are our own identity, and for us to fully appreciate where we are by today, we should always learn how to look back. Our history is a major part of how we become to be. Our culture helps us to be remarkable. We owe it to our own identity that we can stand with pride. So forgetting our own culture is the most absurd idea, perhaps. If we did for the sake of advancement, it will only feel incomplete. Because if we forgot our culture, who are we?

  84. Culture- Erika Serrano, DEN183
    I believe that everyone of us have our similarities and differences from each other. And one of the factor that makes us different from other people or other group of people is our culture.

    Culture may vary depending on the belief, traditions, religion, norms and values of different group of people around the world. When we think what culture is we oftenly say only the beliefs and practices of a particular group not knowing that there is much deeper meaning behind it. Culture is people’s way of life, it is our group’s characteristics, it’s what makes us diverse from other group of people, it gives us sense of belonging and it can also be our group’s identity.
    And for me it is not right to forget one’s culture for the sake of globalization. The generation of today’s age has a lot of opportunities to offer and one of the reason is globalization. Globalization do have a lot of positive benefits for us especially in our generation. We became more interconnected with other countries or group of people around the world and this leads us to discovering new things about their culture. I can say thay it is not wrong to discover and learned new things from other culture but do we really need to forget our culture after knowing new things from others? Globalization just gives us something to be more connected from other people all over the globe, it gives us things for us to discover and to be learned. But this opportunities aren’t there to forget about our culture, our culture are one of the reason that made us who we are now. It plays a big role in our self growth. And our culture is one thing that makes us unique from others.

    Culture in a particular area of a city, province, and country is to be known as their identity which it has been treasured in years. We should not forget on our culture when it comes to globalization because it is our identity but we can do it both if people control their actions when it comes to taking care of our culture like appreciating old OPM music while listening EDM music, playing old parlor/street games while playing online computer games, speaking proper Filipino language
    while using millennial like Filipino language. The new culture must adjust to the original culture so we can appreciate and treasure our old culture to share with future generations.

    [ Question ] Is forgetting our culture worth it when we aim for globalization?

    I agree on the last paragraph, that we need to bring back our culture that has been forsaken while we aim for globalization. I am not saying that we stop communicating or connecting with other country in fact that is one of the things that can make a Philippines a better country but while we are working on globalization we also need to work on how we are going to teach the Filipino culture on the present generation up to the future generation because, if we don’t preserve our culture we’re nothing but a non-independent country, else we are one of the greatest and richest country in the world.

    Our culture now is not easy we should go with the flow to avoid bully person but sometimes they judge you because your above in all aspect also they pulling you down for them to arise. Lesson learn don’t you ever want’d to be famous because of what is trend be contented on what you have because God has plan in your life.

  88. Globalization refers to the interaction of one economy with all the other economies of the world. This interaction can be in terms of financial transactions, trade, politics,education, production etc. Globalization picked up steam with the invention of newer and newer technologies in the world of transportation and communication. I do believe that change is very necessary when we aim for improvement. In today’s time, we often forget about our own culture because of these changes . We Filipinos are very rich in our culture and forgetting it makes it look like we are also forgetting who we are. Our culture gives us the uniqueness of our country to the other countries. But what are we doing nowadays? Some of us Filipinos are embracing the other culture than our culture . We can still improve our country and not sacrificing our precious culture . So that the the true Filipino traits and culture will last as the technology years goes by because the Filipino culture is one of the reasons why we are proud to say that we are Filipino, we have something that other nations do not have and that is our culture.

    Is forgetting our culture worth it when we aim for globalization? No, in a modern world we still somehow need our culture to have our own originality, while aiming globalization at the same time. I think we Filipinos are known as a cultural people.
    Is it fine to lose our culture that we Filipinos have nurtured and developed over the past decades, in exchange for a country’s culture? No, other countries have different cultures because people have different behaviors. We Filipinos blend tradiotional Filipino and Spanish Catholic traditions, with influences from America and other parts of Asia. The Filipinos are family oriented and often religious with an appreciation for art, fashion, music and food. And that’s what i think that made our culture outstanding….

  90. Delantar, Jierecha S. COM181 BSCS-DF, For me, it was a no to forget culture for aiming the globalization, because theres a lot of ways to aim the globalization one this is in our own country, Philippines. We have our own culture to show other country that we can be globalize in our own ways, enhancing our own products that can also be known internationally. just like in Japan, their culture remain and until now Japanese apply it on their own life but still they nailed the globalization, it is okay to adapt other culture to achieve globalization but to forget it its not acceptable.

  91. When we talk about culture it all about our self. Culture refer to the cumulative deposit of oknowledge,  experience,  beliefs,  value, attitude, meaning and others this acquired  by people  pf groups in course of generations through individual but culture is more than that. Culture shapes us. Sometimes we filipino forget our culture because of globalization. But we should bring the bring back our culture for the sake of new generation. I agree with the article about his/her opinion about forgetting our culture because of globalization. While we are adopting other cultures we should not forget our own culture because this our own this is how we been shape by it. We should inherit the things that we should value and also let the new generation experience what we experience. I agree that we should stop adopting other cultures for the sake of new generation. We should love our country and culture before we love other. This article has something to do with the new generation who always love other cultures.. We should be contented of our culture because it our own and we need to value and inherit it.

  92. We must not forget that Filipino cultures who values life, family and moral dignity still exist in this hyperconnected generation. We are lucky to be labeled as “entitled” to have all the benefits of new technologies.

    We must not forget that we should live to our national identity on what is good, valuable and ethical based on how we are raised and influenced by our culture.

    Changes are imminent but we should be guided by our cultural values to be a better individual.

    In my opinion, we should keep our culture when aiming for globalization, since it is the culture, that represent us. What else can we give if we have nothing to share, globally. In innovating, culture is one of the major factor in globalization, for example, some third world country have mcdonald, why? Because, we’ve adopted it from the other country, another example is learning some chinese cuisine if you want to enhance your food by spices. In conclusion, culture helps other country develop another way of living.

    Yes, the upcoming generation should witness what shaped our country and our very lives. It is indeed a beautiful culture and tradition that we embrace. Nothing is too late when we take a step forward, we must give it a try to express these traditions so that our people will continue to recognize them and soon, influence them. It is given that we, Filipinos, are the sole holder of our culture, what I imply is that some members do not know what shaped them, so we must help them, we must show them how beautiful our culture is.

  95. Jamil Donovan G. Aguinaldo, Com 181 (BSCS-DF) Is forgetting our culture worth it when we aim for globalization? No, for me culture is one in many things that is important to recognize a country, we can aim for globalization with our culture for that the world can recognize us as who we are, nowadays many technologies covering our cultures but most of us cannot forget what our culture is and how our ancestors build and created it. Culture is a unique thing that we can have and we can be proud of.
    Is it fine to lose our culture that we Filipinos have nurtured and developed over the past decades, in exchange for a country’s culture? No, why can we exchange our culture to another one? we born in this country that has a culture already, all we have to do is stick with it and from time to time we can develop it to matched it in generation to generation.

  96. Villamin, Jem Cirene – Den 183 The culture is the glue that holds groups of people together. Culture influences my personal identity because this gives me the label for the group that I’m belong in. Nowadays culture changing as a response to new needs and conditions. Most of us Filipinos nowadays have forgotten our culture because of new modern world that everything getting instant and the development of the modernization and new technologies came in. What the people want now is everything will get easier by the technology and innovations of the people. And the negative effects of this is the culture of ours is being forgotten. Of course we don’t want to lose our culture because that is our foundation. As a student we can still bring back those cultures that faded away during modern development. Forgetting our culture is not worth it when we aim for globalization. We can still get what we aim but don’t forget our culture. Like in Korea, the culture of them didn’t disappear because they give importance to it also they are well develop country. For me, we can still be progressive country and competent in globalization by not being forgotten our culture. Korea didn’t remove their culture but it even helped them to rise up. As a student and as an individual we can find a way to back our own culture and this will lead us to a beautiful country if we richen our culture.

    In terms of the worth of globalization in a context where in forgetting our culture becomes a necessary action, I do believe that globalization is not worth it. For globalization to begin, we humans must first start to share our knowledge with each other. The sharing of knowledge with each other on a global scale is the literal essence of globalization. The point there is so that we may be educated of the way of life, norms, laws, mistakes, triumphs, techniques, and et cetera of other humans. In other words, globalization literally translates to us sharing our cultures. So what’s the point of calling it sharing if in the first place we are actually giving? Globalization, in my opinion, is definitely a good thing but losing our own selves in the process just ruins it.

  98. The word culture has many different meanings. For some it refers to an appreciation of good literature, music, art, and food. For a biologist, it is likely to be a colony of bacteria or other microorganisms growing in a nutrient medium in a laboratory Petri dish. However, for anthropologists and other behavioral scientists, culture is the full range of learned human behavior patterns. The term was first used in this way by the pioneer English

    This article is very informative and its meaning is so much helpful for every Filipino Citizen who almost forgot about their own culture. Personally, I give a thumbs up for the writer.

    First and foremost, we must not forget about our own culture. Why? It is because our unique and lovable culture is what makes us as a Filipino. It is our trademark here in our country. We may differ from other country’s culture but we remain the best for we always remember our culture and promote it wholeheartedly. We must not be blind and adopt different culture for it is not ours. It gives us different identity and it seems like that we are proud of what we have as a Filipino. We, as a proud Filipino citizen, must and should promote our own identity for it makes us from who we are. Let us be proud and never hesitate to shout that we have the best culture that anybody wishes for. We should still embrace what our country has and give our all to make it the best-est! Change might be inevitable but always remember that we should go back from where we started. Mabuhay, Kulturang Pilipino!

    ‏our culture should never be forgotten it remind us that we are part of a history that defined our past
    shapes who we are today and who we are likely to become. Once we ignore the meaning of our culture we’re in danger of damaging the underpinning of our identity.

    No, we cannot just forget our culture just to aim globalization and it can never be worth it. The culture that many of us grew and learned from it. It is our tradition and it has special significance with the past. As what the article said, “let us focus on the enrichment of our dying cultures, for the sake of the next generation who would inherit the cultures that we value and also let them experience what we had experience, as a part of molding them to be good members of our growing community.” We can aim globalization without neglecting our culture.

  102. Jeremy Y. Carpio Den 183

    We should not forget our culture, because our culture is part of who we are today. By pur culture we can share something different to other people.

  103. The Filipino culture is alive… it has its own way to evolve and to live in the heart of Filipino. One good example are the good artists from Paete, Laguna where they do wood curving but since the lumbers are limited today they shifted to ice curving. These artist are very well known today in prestige hotels worldwide and they are earning distinguish awards globally.
    Kudos to all Filipino artists who keeps our culture alive despite the globalisation issue.
