This study explores the dynamic interplay between traditional and modern cultural norms, investigating the factors influencing their evolution over time. As societies undergo rapid transformations driven by technological advancements, globalization, and social changes, the clash and convergence of traditional and modern values become increasingly evident. The research employs a multidisciplinary approach, drawing on anthropology, sociology, psychology, and history to analyze the complex mechanisms shaping cultural norms. The study begins by establishing a conceptual framework that defines traditional and modern cultural norms, recognizing that these terms can be fluid and context-dependent. It then delves into historical perspectives, tracing the roots of traditional norms and examining pivotal moments that triggered shifts towards modernity. The impact of globalization on cultural exchange and the diffusion of ideas are explored, highlighting both the homogenizing and diversifying effects on norms across different societies. A significant focus of the research is on the role of technology in shaping Cultural Revolution. The advent of the internet, social media, and other communication technologies has accelerated the spread of modern values, challenging established norms and fostering new cultural paradigms. The study also investigates the impact of these technological shifts on individual identity, social relationships, and community structures.
