Thanks to the means of modern transportation and communication, the world is getting smaller. It seems that people live in a large global village gathering with different cultures and customs. Some socialists say that this has negative effects on our social values. I completely agree with this view.
First of all, the Internet revolution provides us with more facilities, including searching for information and learning about big events across the world in no time. In the meantime, it brings us negative effects. In recent years, people have become more obsessed with foreign culture. University students are indulging in merry-making to celebrate Christmas. their romantic times on Valentine’s Day. All these pictures reveal a bleak reality that few people have keen enthusiasm for the traditional Chinese festivals, Dragon Boat Festival and Lantern Festival.
Second, international travel prompts more and more people to travel abroad. Traveling to Japan and South Korea is more popular among women. They call themselves Daigou- selling foreign products at a lower price. They always send Moments in WeChat to publicize Japanese make-up like SK-II. Our domestic cosmetics, say, PERFECT DAIRY and CHCEDO, are on the decline in this sense.
Lastly, advertising hype foreign clothes brands, like Adidas, Nike, and so on. And such materials are often endorsed by popular stars. Thus, lots of people purchase Adidas. And many young girls buy Brandy Melville, an Italian clothing brand, which only sells clothes suitable for s size. Instead, fewer people are interested in the brand of ANTA.
In conclusion, I believe that the Internet revolution, international travel and advertising negatively affect our social values.
