Some people think that young people should follow the traditions of the society.Others think young people are free to behave as individuals.
Discuss both views and give your opinion.
1.Some young people are ashamed of the adherence to tradition,while strongly advocating rebellion and freedom.To me,tradition has never been a yoke to freedom.
2.Young individuals identified as independent-minded usually behave differently from their conservative peers.Their less conventional behavior stems from the resistance to some traditional customs,lifestyles or thoughts that should have been eliminated in today’s society.With these outdated values—the obsession with a permanent job and the stereotype of men being the breadwinners while women the housewives—in mind,how could young adults be innovative?If that is the case,then why bother with these values?
3.However,if all the traditions set by predecessors are removed,what remains would be a disorderly society,where non-compliance becomes the only rule.As a matter of fact,the freedom of behaving as individuals,in many cases,is not contradictory to following the tradition,i.e positive ones.Simply put,it is hard to imagine one person deliberately disrespecting others,just to flaunt individuality,and why diligence or patriotism,traditional virtues like these,cannot be used as individual labels?At the same time,preaching individuality may signify selfishness and irresponsibility.Encouraging the young to violate tradition,the propagation is a discontinuation of one's social identity,but to members of society,as inter-dependent individuals,it is an obligation to perpetuate this social identity in the community.
4.In conclusion,abiding by the tradition of society and behaving as individuals can co-exist.What a young person chooses to do depends on what kind of individual he or she wants to be.
