Firstly, I do not think that we have to choose between technology and traditional culture, though, admittedly, technological development may change our culture in part. For example, most societies, Western and traditional alike, have had to shift from the traditional norm of extended family to nuclear family pattern which is more easily manageable in this industrialized world. But this change is necessary, if not essential, because if there were no change, there would be no progress. After all, sustainability means adaptability. Time has helped us filter out the no –longer suitable traditions and retain only the part of our traditional cultures suitable for today’s socio – economic and cultural life. In fact, good examples of the harmony between modern technology and traditional culture can be seen in Japan, South Korea, France, among numerous other countries world wide. I would argue, therefore, that traditional culture and technology can be happily married to each other.
