Perhaps it is the benefits of the consumer society. Perhaps it is - TopicsExpress


Perhaps it is the benefits of the consumer society. Perhaps it is market analysis. Or perhaps it is something in the American personality. But I feel a real contrast between the flexible, adjustable, responsive aspect of American culture that is always monitoring and changing habits of life. This is both good and bad. On the other hand, here in Pakistan and elsewhere, tradition and habit is institutionalized with little flexibility. If a food serving is good, it is given again and again even when you request otherwise, or clothing, or schedule, or road habits. And the request for change is either not heard, misunderstood, or causes mild shock. There is no need for the consumer to be asked what he or she desires, because the habits are ingrained, and changing patterns are very disruptive. It gives Americans a very entrepreneurial spirit. It also gives them a relativism and a self-centeredness that, at times lack structure and soul. But it makes for great economic advantage. Its the difference between Ill give you what you want whether its worthless or not and Our tradition says that this is the way it is supposed to be; please dont change the script! Like · · Share
