TOPIC: ISSUE111 - "The worldwide distribution of television programs and advertisements is seriously diminishing the differences among cultures."
WORDS: 512 TIME: 0:45:00 DATE: 2008-7-21

The author claims that the differences among cultures are being diminished by the worldwide distribution of television programs and advertisements. However, I fundamental do not agree the author's opinion. I think that, though there is a little negative impact on cultures, the worldwide distribution of media is giving positive influence on our various culture and development.
To begin with, as dramatic development of scientific technology, media, like TV and internet, has been became more and more popular in society. The result is we can watch a lot of alien things and also perceive the different culture without traveling but only staying home. Powerful force of media breakthroughs region and time limitation, and spreads different cultures to our public. At the same time, we can learn much fresh knowledge from various cultures and assimilate their good aspect into our owning culture. Certainly, we can prompt our culture to a higher place. Furthermore, we can also be aware of our culture flaw and distance by comparing our culture with alien cultures. Then we can improve our culture and it is favor of our culture development. Additionally, We can also can learn something else by learning some different culture and enhance our characters. For example, we may not understand some special phenomenon from certain alien culture and even have repugnance. Actually, the special phenomenon may drive from their special circumstance or is caused by some complicated reason. Media can be the storytellers who can tell us phenomenon's detail and give us a reasonable interpretation. After learning the related background, we may understand it or begin to support the culture. In that way, we also become more contained and have enough wisdom and courage to absorb much knowledge from alien culture.
However, there is also some negative impact on culture spread from media. We can learn much similar example like culture colony and culture invasion from history stories. Admittedly, media that is a double-edge sword can spread culture, and also destroy or extinct a culture. Media is just a tool that is control by our people. That is an old saying that existence is reasonable. no matter how original or strange certain culture is, the culture is always reasonable for local people. We should respect the culture firstly and never show arrogance on it. The one who overlook other culture and prefer its culture only blindly would pay a heavy price on its prejudice one day. Chinese recent war history is a good example to support the view.
In summary, there is no definition about priority about culture. All culture are equal and own its advantage and disadvantage. Our media is just a tool for spreading various cultures. The impact of media on cultures is determined our human being. Therefore we should have enough courage and tolerance to learn a strange culture and study to learn its advantage then assimilate its advantage as our one part of culture. Moreover, by comparing with alien culture, our culture can be improved. Only this, we can develop our culture well and our culture would service our human being well.
