B. Decreasing the sense of nationalism

The bad habit of using western culture can erode the sense of pride in the nation's own products. For example, teenagers who like products made in other countries compared to products from their own country, teenagers usually feel proud of buying food or stuff from other countries than from their own countries

C. Decreasing moral and religious values

It usually happens on the internet, or television some people get addicts of porn video, drugs, etc.. because they like watching negative content on the internet.

We are as the young generation we must able to filter which is the good and the bad one from the western culture so our original culture will not lose, Let's keep our good morality wherever and whenever we are.
