This prompt points to a general perception that the youth is on the frontline of contemporary culture. Indeed, young people are the creative and energetic part of the [ article error ] society, (which makes it inevitable to analyze the younger generation for understanding modern culture) [unclear ]. However, I will [tense error ] argue that we should not overlook the older generation [logically, an incomplete sentence ].
We cannot be negligent of how much the youth can tell about today’s culture. Because of their age, they
become [are ]the most creative and energetic [portion of the population ] people, and their [ Their ] requirements partly determine the consumption of their parents, the major labor of the society. What they [ unclear pronoun ] like and how they behave largely orient (future streams)[ unclear ]. For example, [ article error ]contemporary (internet-famous)[ unclear ] culture is [ grammatical error ]raised and supported firstly by young people(. But)[ , but ] now it’s becoming (more and more)[ wordy ] popular among the middle-aged. So does[ grammatical error ] Hip-hop. It[ unclear pronoun ]’s originated from[ article error ] movements formed by African-American and Latino youths, and then became [ unparalleled ]popular outside of the African-American community. From these cases, (the study of )[ wordy ]the trends of youths can offer a sneak peek into the orientation of contemporary cultural development.
However, culture is highly affected by (the constitution of the population)[wordy ]. It will [ tense error ]be reductionist to argue that the study of youths is sufficient to capture the contemporary culture, since a diverse range of cultures among other ages speaks volumes about the society’s atmosphere, especially in an aging society. In addition, it’s middle-aged adults who occupy the major positions in the working market have[ grammatical error ] enough (money, resources)[resources including money/financial resource ] and forces[ unclear word ] to influence
the mainstream culture in the whole society. In a nutshell, we should incorporate the study of ages besides youths,[punctuation error ] to better and more fully appreciate a society’s culture.
For example, “Cuihun”[ punctuation error ] which means the older generation pushing young people into marriage, is becoming a new routine during[ article error ] Chines[ spelling error ] New Year. This new trend apparently relates to people (around parents’ ages)[ unclear ] rather than the youths’. It’s [ article error ]people aged 50-70 [ missing pronoun ]make young men and women feel anxious and pressured about matrimony. Their[ unclear pronoun ] ideas form the backdrop to[ preposition error ] the society. It seems if you’re not married, you’re doing something wrong. A careful study of [article error ] “Cuihun culture” will contribute to our understanding of[ article error ] contemporary Chinese culture.
If we were to embark on an endeavor to explore and understand a society’s culture, we could [grammatical error ]start from gathering knowledge about its youth. But it’s not necessarily the most efficient way of understanding a society’s contemporary culture.
