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…

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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… Read more »

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.
