After reading the whole article, the main idea of the article is the effects of different culture on human beings. The writer analyses it in four points: “Cultural Universals, Culture Clash, Ethnocentrism and Cultural Relativism”. (A Global Analysis of Culture, Alex Thai) First, in Cultural Universals, the writer thinks that cultures are the stuff which people everywhere meet these needs. These needs are universal, like food and shelter. So cultures are universal. Second, in Culture Clash, the writer’s opinion is that different people in different area have different faith.
Those different faiths cause culture clash and he mainly talks about this in four points. Third, in Ethnocentrism, he said that as we are born, we are taught that our way of life is the greatest. By these measures, people tend to feel a strong sense of unity as a nation and keep their ethnocentrism to themselves. Both Culture Clash and Ethnocentrism “may create more conflict and violence in the world”.
(A Global Analysis of Culture, Alex Thai) Fourth, in Cultural Relativism, the writer thinks cultural relativism help people to understand the cultures of others.
And it is contribute to international peace. In my opinion, I agree the analysis of global culture. According to my own culture, in Culture Clash, the most obvious way is KEF and McDonald. The number of teenagers who like eat KEF and McDonald more than Chinese food increased quickly when those brand into Chinese market in asses. I think the reason KEF and McDonald can succeed in Chinese market is that the people who was born in 1 980 is tired of eating Chinese food day by day. They eager to try some new stuff in order to content their exploration of the unknown world.
There are some another example like KEF and McDonald, like more and more adults eke use the clothes or luxuries of foreign brands to decorate themselves. All these phenomenon are Culture Clash from one culture to the another culture. In my opinion, we should look at this problem in a dialectical perspective.
