THE TRUTH ABOUT CUSTOMS***

customsGlobe

Custom: n. a similar habitual behavior(s) done by a group of two or more people but the group is frequently as large as an ethnic group or a nation

Customs are the common or similar habits of a group of humans which may be as small as a family or it can be as large as a nation or group of nations.

Celebrating the fourth of July may be a United States custom but there are still very many in the nation who do not celebrate it so that not all customs are practiced by every member of a relatively large group. The smaller the group, the more probable it is that more than a majority practice the custom.

Eating certain foods, dressing in national attire, singing folk songs, telling folk tales or stories, and practicing a certain religion used to make regional customs rather unique.

Today with so many having international exposure and the internet playing such a major role in transforming cultures, local and national customs are either dying out or being assimilated or transformed by humans worldwide.

The quest for newness may overwhelm humans who will be trying out new foods, new fashions, new songs, new movies, and new products. Commonly held customs will become so diverse that there will be little left of national identities all replaced to some extent by an international mass culture.

A global community sharing similar customs is still pretty far off into the future and some Muslims are violently resisting globalized mass culture.

THE TRUTH ABOUT TRADITION

tradition

Tradition: n. existing customs and/or beliefs which are frequently transferred from generation to generation

Western media is waging war on tradition.

Thrift and financial responsibility is being discouraged,

family values are being assaulted with glorified promiscuity causing family breakdown,

healthy biodiverse organic food is being destroyed with too much use of artificial chemicals, GMO’s, factory farming, and monoculture agriculture,

basic morality against lying, stealing, and adultery is not being taught,

and outdated liberal arts education is not preparing humans to work in the technological 21st century.

Traditional cultural, moral, and family values is what made Japan, South Korea, China, the United States, and Germany prosper but it is all being threatened by an emphasis on big money power with no moral backbone which is corrupting the world and destroying cohesive social structures and principles with it.

Social cohesion is threatened with a breakdown of tradition and the solution is to replace it with an updated binding secular moral code taught worldwide to young impressionable minds in elementary school.

Except in emergency situations-don’t destroy biodiversity, don’t lie, don’t be inefficient, don’t steal, don’t commit adultery if married, and don’t murder.

A common secular morality will bind the citizens of the world into cohesive small and big social units which will be able to interact relatively peacefully with each other. What the world truly needs is an updated secular morality which can then be realistically applied to most of the laws and decisions made in society.

For example, don’t fraudulently steal the health of citizens with unhealthy food and deceptive lying practices which don’t label all the chemicals and ingredients in food. If there are GMO’s or artificial chemicals in foods then label them truthfully and don’t try to deceive the public into thinking they are consuming healthy food. Don’t fraudulently steal health and don’t try to lie about the ingredients in food by deceptive labeling!!!!!!

Believe it or not -the key to destroying corruption begins with a common secular moral belief put into practice at every level of society.
