American culture includes the traditions and customs of United State including religion, art food and the religions. Since America is a country of immigrants, almost every section of the world has influenced its culture. Today American culture influences the world. The term Western Culture often refers mostly to the cultures of Europe and America. America is highly populated by people from foreign countries but all Americans traces their ancestry back to another culture in one way or the other whether Scottish, Irish, Italian or German. The greatest part of daily evil comes from American culture. Rebelling from authorities, pretence and being violent are some of the negative impacts which American culture has.
American culture engrosses violence and leads to consign crimes. Violence in America is widely shown in TV programs, mass produced movies and music. Switching through the TV channels of America, the very likely to be heard is offensive speech as the language used in the films is full of swear words. Also, scenes of beating and fighting dominate their channels. Statistics evidently shows that the rate of crime in the U.S. has been increasing at a high rate and, as a result youths are mostly involved in the violence.
American culture supports and encourages rebellion against authorities. America has brought a bogus meaning of freedom to the lives of many Americans. A good example is that it is possible to have a driving license at the tender age of 16 years but, on the other hand, it is impossible to have a beer at the same age. This implies that, having a car crash and kill someone is less harmful than being drunk and have ridiculous behaviors. American culture tolerates almost everything which is not tolerable to many countries. Good examples are American courts full of enthusiastic people with petty cases. These are improper behaviors because some limits have to be observed.
Teenagers follow American authorities who are not role models. Imitation leads to lose one’s dignity and personality in my own opinion, trying to be someone else; you are not yourself and that is lining a lie to yourself since you are following unrealistic models. Youth in America tends to follow authorities that are artificial thus; they are professed in a negative light. For example singers and movie stars are just creations of Hollywood’s great machine and many youths pay much attention to how they act without realizing how dangerous it can be. Great part of American show business people are not exemplify since they are alcoholic and drug addicts thus not worthy following.
Many countries such as China and France want to de-Americanize the world. To de-Americanize means to make American in character, incorporate to the associations and customs of the U.S. China’s official news agency has proposed the creation of a “de-Americanized” World suggesting that destinies of people should not be left in the hands of a hypocritical nation with a dysfunctional government. The U.S. government has gone to all spans to emerge before the world as the one that asserts the moral high ground, while secretly doing audacious things such as spying on world leaders, tormenting prisoners of war and slaying civilians in drone attacks. This implies saving people from being in unsafe hands of people who do not prioritize their needs and requirements.
In my opinion, America’s culture has negative effects and has contributed greatly to erode the moral, values, behaviors and the culture of many countries across the world through imitation as many people want to be like Americans and start dressing provocatively especially women and having vulgar languages which is not their culture. Many countries’ culture, morals and values can be negatively influence due to the workings of American culture which is more harmful than profitable
