    i do agree as Indonesians we must preserve our culture, because that is our valuable ancestor’s heritage and because of culture also as an Indonesia’s identity. moreover, culture is a valuable asset for Indonesia to increas country’s foreign exchange.
    threfore, as young generation we have to save and preserve our culture. so it won’t taken by any country else. like malaysia claime Indonesia’s culture in case. that’s because we are less to take care about it.
    se keep it for no repeated anymore !

    Young generation should preserve Indonesian culture. Why can i say that? here my reasons are:
    First, because we are the young generation, we are the new seeds for our country. If we don’t start now to preserve our culture who will do it in the future when we will be the leader? what will happen if we late to take this act?
    Second, it’s a must in our country to protect our culture, our selves identity. There are rules that organize about this problem.
    Third, because none of us, people in this world are say YES when their own culture are stolen by another country else. Exactly they will stand up to say NO. No excepted us. So, we are the young generations who have a lot of fresh energy, fresh minds, we should preserve our culture more, more, and more.

    I absolutely agreed with your statement. Indonesian culture is a precious heritage from the ancestor which differ Indonesia among all nation in the world. why?
    Firstly, As one of Indonesia young generation (almost 75% of total population of Indonesia) I would always tried to look for any opportunities which I can see the fact of Indonesia culture that still exist.
    Secondly, The most easiest way to do is to preserve the way of togetherness in working or communal activities, we called “gotong royong”. This kind of spirit almost forgotten by Indonesians. Especially in urban space, where people tend to be very individualistic.
    Third, Preserve culture by buying traditional clothing or handicraft is one more thing that we can do. Using traditional herbs and medicine as daily lifestyle, if you are musician you can develop a performance that include traditional musical instrument. There are many things that we can do as Indonesian youth generation to preserve our culture. Where there is a will, there is hope.
    Therefore The basic thing that we should do is try as much as possible to blend Indonesian culture in our daily life, proud being Indonesian and make the culture as the way to show Indonesia as a charming nation in the whole world.

    Young Generation Should Preserve Indonesian Culture

    I presume, we as the young generation should preserve our countries cultures. Why I presume like that? Firstly, from our experience, we know that the culture of our country has claimed and bulgarized for many times by the another countries. Surely, we as the owner of our countries cultures don’t want if our cultures become claimed again by the another countries.
    Secondly, our cultures are became claimed by another countries for many times, because an instance from the government’s and our people’s failure. This fact can happen because we don’t give the law and act to protect our culture. There are many young generations that don’t care again about our traditional culture. They has stirred up by the modern culture from the another west countries. Our people are more concern with the economic, social, and technology issue than the cultures issue. Indonesia is the big country and consist of many islands. There are many tribes, and customs in Indonesia. There are a lot of thousands cultures that saved in our nation. But now, our cultures are neglected by our people, and as a result, our culture are claimed by another countries.
    Thirdly, our culture is the identity of our nation. The quality of our nation can come out from the culture too. If we can’t provide our culture, our nation will be robbed their soul. If we want our nation is qualified in the international scope, we must keep qualified in the international scope, we must keep and introduce our cultures. The culture assets of Indonesia are the big heritages that must be kept.

    As a nation rich in culture, it is appropriate that we preserve our heritage, especially for the younger generation. Why do I say that??
    First, because culture is the identity of a country, which can distinguish a single country to country. In particular the culture of Indonesia, because Indonesia has a variety of cultures in each region, thus making this country into one of the country that is rich in local culture.
    Second, because the culture is one tool for unifying the nation. Although Indonesia has a variety of cultures in every region, but can still appreciate each other and respecting differences. So that can unite all people of Indonesia.
    Third, as an addition to foreign exchange. Due to cultural diversity is owned by Indonesia, to attract foreign tourists to come to Indonesia, and we already know that tourism is one of the largest suppliers of foreign exchange in Indonesia, and one of the goals of the tourists is not just a tourist attractions, but also cultural who owned the place.
    Therefore, as the Indonesian people, especially the younger generation, it is proper we are to preserve the culture of Indonesia. Because the culture we have is a precious treasure the legacy of our ancestors, our culture also can distinguish our nation with other countries in the world.
    A lot of things we can do to preserve it, as it tries as much as possible to apply the culture we have in everyday life, and most importantly, we must always proud to be Indonesia’s young generation, because with pride that we have, to develop a sense of love and strive to always maintain and preserve the culture of Indonesia.

    The young generation should preserve the culture of Indonesia. Why do I say that?
    Firstly, because culture has been defined generally as the totality of the way of life evolved by a people in their attempts to meet the challenges of living in their environment. Culture should not be interpreted merely as a return to the customs of the past. And some of us are living examples of what our cultures and traditions did for us when we were young. They helped us develop and mould our attitudes and characters to be productive, useful, purposely and progressive lives. Many of us reject immoral living and corruption, laziness and conning.
    Secondly, you know we have already heard a lot of news or comments about our cultures claim. From something near around us like Batik, Indonesian puppets (Wayang), Reog Ponorogo, Pendet dance, Rasa Sayange song, and so on. This happens because of us, our mistake, not patent our cultures yet. To prevent this action not happen in the next time, we must start to feel that we’re proud of being Indonesian people, love being Indonesian people, and we’re ready to preserve and protect our culture with our way.
    Thirdly, we find ourselves caught in between two contemporary cultures, the traditional and the western culture. Well maybe some of us agree that today, western culture more dominant than traditional cultures. Some people said that traditional cultures are old fashioned, dirty, or even primitive. As a result, the traditional cultures forgotten.
    From the arguments above, it is needed for us, young generation should preserve the culture of Indonesia.

    The young generation must preserve the culture of Indonesia Why do I say that?
    First, culture is an identity of a people to distinguish between one nation with another nation. We know that Indonesia has a diverse culture such as dances, songs, clothing and other. Therefore we as the younger generation must preserve our culture. Because if we do not preserve our culture, our culture can be claimed by other countries and the identity of Indonesia as a country rich in culture will be lost.
    Second, by preserving our culture, we can help governments through foreign exchange. Efforts among other things done through the promotion of cultural and performing arts both within the country and abroad. Performance and promotion will attract tourists to visit Indonesia and Indonesia will earn foreign exchange.
    Third, we as the younger generation have more time and more opportunities to preserve the culture than the olders. For that culture needs to be preserved as early as possible, such as following the dance studio and learn batik so later, also to pass on tips Indonesian culture to our children and grandchildren.
    From the above facts, we know that preserving culture is important. For that let us as young people not only learn about our culture but we must also preserve it.

    Young generation should preserve indonesian culture

    Indonesia is a country that is rich in culture. it is an archipelago country that each part of the country has its own traditions and customs. it, however, has changed over the time. People now are not as traditional as they were. the culture gradually fades away over the time. people are no longer give high respect to the traditions and culture the way our ancestors did. We now tend to live in a modern way, because we want to look cook.
    I think, as a young generation, we have to preserve our culture.
    First of all, it is because culture is our identity. People know each other for some characteristics they own, like friendly, kind, nice, generous, or even stingy, arrogant, etc. That is what we mean as the identity. If we let the culture fade away, we will not have identity. Indonesia is then gong to be recognized for “modern” identities which are not ours at all from the very first place.
    The second reason is that it is the only way we can pass the original values this country holds to the next generation. Of course we do not want to be judged as the breaker of the cultural chain. If we do not maintain and preserve it, the next generation will never know their true identity, their ancestors’.
    The next thing is taht because this is what we sell to the world. It is because we have these culture that those foreigners want to get to know to us. it is our culture that interests them the most, so if it’s gone, I do not think people would bother visiting this country. It will not good for our country economically.
    I can say that culture is like our everything. Culture is the one that will define our identity. Preserving our culture is preserving our next generation and our country.

    Young generation should preserve indonesian culture

    I think that Indonesian culture which should be preserved. Why do I say that ?
    First, it is an important asset owned by Indonesian. Indonesian culture is identity of Indonesia. If we don’t preserve from now, then in the future we haven’t pure culture from Indonesia again to bequeathed to the next generation because we forget with our culture or our culture has taked by other countries. For example, Wayang and Reog Ponorogo which claimed by Malaysia as it’s own. And then, Batik which claimed by Adidas, either international biggest company in the world. Also Toraja’s coffee from Sulawesi Selatan who claimed by Japanese company. If we don’t do anything for this claimed, then Indonesian culture will run out by other countries.
    Secondly, Indonesian culture is a precious heritage from the ancestor which differ Indonesia among all nation in the world. As one of Indonesia young generation (almost 75% of total population of Indonesia) I would always tried to look for any opportunities which I can see the fact of Indonesia culture that still exist. The most easiest way to do is to preserve the way of togetherness in working or communal activities, we called “gotong royong”. This kind of spirit almost forgotten by Indonesians. Especially in urban space, where people tend to be very individualistic. Preserve culture by buying traditional clothing or handicraft is one more thing that we can do. Using traditional herbs and medicine as daily lifestyle, if you are musician you can develop a performance that include traditional musical instrument. There are many things that we can do as Indonesian youth generation to preserve our culture. Where there is a will, there is hope.
    Thirdly, culture can be attractive to other countries, if we want to promote our country, we have to promote our culture as well. If we promote Indonesian culture to the other countries with internet and other media, then most people in the world which see our promote who interest will visit our country. We hereby can help government to promote our country and get countries income.
    From the facts above, the basic thing that we should do is try as much as possible to blend Indonesian culture in our daily life, proud being Indonesian and make the culture as the way to show Indonesia as a charming nation in the whole world.

    I love Indonesia.

    Should young generation preserve indonesian culture?

    As an indonesian, we should be very proud. It is because our country consist of a of culture. A lot of other countries admire Indonesia, even some of them feel jealous. Sometime they try to steal our culture by announcing that some some creations are belong to them. For example batik, reog, tempe, and etc. Therefore, indonesian should have awareness to perserve those belonging, especially young generation. There are some reasons why it should be young generation
    First, it is because young generation will inherit the culture. If the young do not perserve it gradually our culture will be lose. It means that Indonesia identity will be lose. Other countries will not resperct Indonesia. It is a pity when the young feel shy show the culture. For example, some youngster feel shy to play traditional music instrument.
    Second, it because young generation can use the culture as a local wisdom to control their behaviour. In this era, a lot of other culture enter freely in Indonesia. If the youngster cannot select which one is possitive, which one is negative, our youngster will be dammaged by those effect.
    By awaring those importance, come on youngsters, we should preserve our culture. It is for the Indonesia future. If the youngsters not to do so, Indonesia will lose its identity and gradually will lose the dignity from international.

    Should young generation preserve indonesian culture?

    Youth is the agent of change for every country in the world. No wonder any country will strive to do anything to boost the young generation potentials in order to improve the well being of its nation. Indonesia is not the exception. Youth has always been the elements which move the society ever since the nation was still under the authority of deutch colonial. Every movement should emerge from the smallest element, every youth should contribute to its country, Indonesia for the sake of nation’s welvare. Our culture is undeniably is getting well known in the world you can mention many of them such as wayang, reog, batik, etc. But the problem is, those culture are little by little claimed by other country. Now what we can do about it as young generation? Yes to preserve it. Preserving culture means keeping it around and appreciating it. If you are javanese, dont hesitate to learn batik art, wayang kulit, so other people will be inspired to do the same. Show the other country in the world that our culture is very rich and beautiful. Promote our culture to indonesian people and people outside this country. So that they know the cultute belongs to Indonesia, not other country’s. Every young generation should participate in preserving indonesians culture.if not who else would?

    Young Generation Should Preserve Indonesian Culture

    Indonesia is very large. It consists of thousands ethnic group which also means that it consists of thousands culture. The cultures are our national wealth. We are proud of having them. Many foreigners also like Indonesian culture because they are unique. They come to our country to see the unique cultures. It is our duty as young generation to preserve the cultures in order that it will be long lasting.
    Nowadays, many young people are proud of being modern by adopting foreign culture. The culture does not only mean art, but also philosophy. They think that it is better than our own culture. In fact, our culture is not worse than foreign culture. It consists of philosophy symbolizing our principal values as Indonesian.
    Additionally, if many young people proud of foreign culture, our own culture will be extinct. No one will preserve it but the old people who are still aware of its values. Finally, it is easier for other country to claim Indonesian culture to be its cultures.
    The lost of our own culture will make Indonesian loose their principle values. Also, the extinct of the culture will make it possible for other countries to take advantage of it.

    The young generation should preserve the culture of Indonesia. Why do I say that?
    firstly, as an identity of a nation. Factually, all countries can be distinguished by histories that have been passed,
    which from the histories producing culture. In fact, Indonesia is a nation with most culture in the world. In my opinion
    that is one main reason that why Indonesia can became a famous among other countries. Also must remembered, all native
    culture are need to be patented by international college like UNESCO.
    secondly, tell the next generation who we are. This argument still related with the above argument, time is still moving,
    till once a time, Indonesian people need to know like what Indonesia in fact. It purpose to remind the next
    generation to keep the behavior that represent Indonesia culture.
    third, as heritages from ancestor. To result a culture takes a long time and not easy to be formed. Our ancestor make culture
    for a better live. Now, despite not all past culture can be applied for present culture. Therefore, it’s a duty for us
    as young generation to preserve it as sense of responsibility toward our ancestor.

    First, culture can reflect the personality of a nation.
    it can be seen, because there isn’t culture exactly the same with the another country. So, if we not preserve our culture it mean, we’ve eliminated the nation’s personality.

    Second, with the original culture of a country, it would increase state revenues. why? because it will be a lot of tourists will come to Indonesia, and possibly many of those who would try to learn about Indonesian culture.

    From the facts above, we know that we must preserve our culture.

It should be doing by the Indonesian young generation, because if they don’t do it, the Indonesian culture will be claimed by others country and we will loss our culture. If we do not guard it, other countries will easily to claim our culture. What happens if another country claimed our culture? Many disappointments that occurred in Indonesian society lost of confidence in Indonesian society.
    Second, by introducing our culture, it means we’ve helped our nation in the country’s economy. It’s because the foreign tourists will visit our country, with a tourist visit, the income will come. In addition, with the introduction of our culture, Indonesia will be better known by the countries in the world.

    The young generations have to preserve the culture of Indonesia, why do I say that?
    Firstly, culture is an identity of a nation. So if we not preserve our nation and we lost our culture, we’ll not have something that makes our nation different with other nation. if we have the traits that make us different from other countries, the people from other country will interest with our culture and they will visit our country which make us profit.
    Second, because we are a nation that has a lot of cultures that sometimes escape our attention and we as a younger generation of Indonesians nation that was already supposed to keep our culture. we are young and should have a great spirit. Do not let the youth of other nations which will boast Indonesian culture. We must learn from the experiences that happen, do not make the same mistake.
    third, the young generation is the successor to the nation that would inherit all things from the previous generation including the culture of this nation. If young people do not want to keep the cultural inheritance of Indonesia will be closed until the generation above us only. If that happens then we will lose the identity of our nation. And of course our generation and the next generation will be very confused and will trust ourselves to other nations will crumble.
    That’s why we must preserve our culture.

If we have no culture of indonesia, we have no identity, we’ll not have charecteristic of Indonesia. Indonesia doesn’t have something that can be proud in international. Young generations have longer time and more opportunities to preserve the culture than the olders.
    Second, Culture can be attractive to other countries. If we want to promote our country, we have to promote our culture as well. If we have a characteristic, the foreign tourist will interest with our culture and they will visit our country, they aspect can also develop.

    • Thesis:
    Indonesian culture is a precious heritage that should be preserved by the young generation.
    • Arguments:
    1. It is Indonesian’s identity.
    2. By preserving culture, it means we keep our norms and values in our society.
    3. It can attract or increase tourism income.
    4. Young genration have longer time and more opportunities to preserve our culture.

    • Conclusion:
    As a strenght nation commonly and as young generation specifically, we must preserve Indonesian culture.

    Culture as Valuable Asset for Indonesia

    In my opinion, Indonesian culture is a precious heritage which should be preserved by the young generation. Why do I say that?
    First, it is Indonesian’s identity. The identity of a nation distinguishes that nation to another. Indonesian people have unique cultural traditions inherent in their daily life. That tradition has become a habit, out of this habit or distinctive character the identity of a nation is shown.
    Second, by preserving our culture, it means we keep our norms and values in our society. In Yogyakarta they are many norms and values upheld. Values and norms are reflected in the behaviour of society. For example, younger people should not be saying “hus” to older people. It proves that the culture in Indonesia does not necessarily mean art. Culture also represents the values and norms prevailing in society. That’s why if we preserve our culture it means automatically we keep our norms and values.
    Third, it can attract or increase tourism income. Based on http://www.indoshopndine.com, Indonesia has ranked as the 7th world of 10 countries of the world’s tourist destination. Natural resources coupled with cultural treasures that we have proved capable of attracting foreign tourists to come to Indonesia.
    Fourth, young generation have longer time and more opportunities to preserve the culture. This statement cannot be denied. Young generation have longer time to study and preserve the cultural treasures of Indonesia. It tends cause them to have more opportunities to learn and preserve traditional Indonesia culture. So later the culture is able to bequeath to the next generation.
    As the Indonesian people in general and as the younger generation in particular, we must preserve the culture of Indonesia. Culture is a precious treasure that distinguishes our nation with other nations in the world. The main thing that we must do is to try as much as possible to apply the Indonesian culture in our daily life (maybe from our clothes, attitude, behaviour, etc.), and most importantly we should be proud to be ourselves, the Indonesian.

    Why does the young generation should preserve Indonesian culture?
    I personally think that young generation should preserve Indonesian culture. Why do I say that?
    It is Indonesian identity which should be preserved. It is something that differ Indonesia with other countries. Which make Indonesia unique in world society’s opinion. It can attract or increase tourism income. Because tourist attract to have a holiday in Indonesia to see Indonesian culture or visit many tourism places. Tourist have to pay for enter tourism places, to rent a hotel, and of course to enter Indonesia from their country. It can increase tourism income.
    Culture is our soul. If we loose our culture, it means that we are like a corpse who are without soul. Culture reflects our characteristics. If our culture is well, it’s like our clean heart. Of course everybody like our culture.
    Young generations have longer time and more opportunities to preserve the culture than the olders. Therefore, we have to preserve Indonesian culture as young generations. We can start with a little things, like exercise a province dance, a province songs, and also make patent our invention as Indonesian culture, so that other countries don’t claim Indonesian culture as theirs.
    From the facts above, it is obvious that young generation should preserve Indonesian culture in order to keep our culture everlasting..

    Young Generation Should Preserve Indonesian Culture

    Thesis

    I think,All young people must empower its culture is increasingly lagging Indonesia .So that Indonesian culture is not claimed by other countries such as Malaysia who claims Reog Ponorogo etc.

    Argument

    1.It is culture that must be preserved

    2.Increasing foreign exchange and foreign tourists visiting Indonesia

    We must love own culture so that culture is not patented in other countries .why do I say that ?

    First, Maintaining the culture in Indonesia is difficult.It also occurs in our culture warrior artists.They must possess the funds to patent their culture to the government.So a lot of our culture which claimed another country.It is expected that all citizens can preserve their own culture so ‘not eaten era’ and the active role of government to patented all of Indonesia’s cultural heritage.

    Second,That could increase tourist arrivals and foreign exchange increase in tourism. Because we can promote our culture from their own country until all countries Expect to increase tourist arrivals and know Indonesian culture is very rich.

    From the text arguments above, it is important for young generation to preserve Indonesian culture.

    The Importance of Cultural bequeath Indonesia

    Indonesia’s diverse cultures and come from different tribes across the country of Indonesia. Indonesian Culture and diverse lot. Indeed many cultural arts inherited, but many young people who do not understand their own culture, and some even do not know , Young people to hell with culture, this is tantamount to killing the identity of the state, because they prefer the more popular western music.

    As still fresh in our memory, art Reog Ponorogo in claims by other countries that are still one family with us, namely Malaysia. After malaysia new claims we acknowledge with pride that it is ours. But when there are several cultures that have not been claimed, we ignored it. Though Indonesia is famous for its cultural diversity, but we are not ignored. Should, without waiting for claim, we have already noted, acknowledge, and defend it as ours, Indonesia.

    We must realize the importance of national culture bequeathed by teens or students? Because the next generation of this nation can maintain its continuity. If at this moment they are no longer with the existence of cultural pride in his own nation, then certainly in the future, our generation will be more foreign culture and do not know his own people.

    Indonesia’s diverse cultures and come from different tribes across the country of Indonesia. Indonesian Culture and diverse lot. Indeed many cultural arts inherited, but many young people who do not understand their own culture, and some even do not know , Young people to hell with culture, this is tantamount to killing the identity of the state, because they prefer the more popular western music.

    As still fresh in our memory, art Reog Ponorogo in claims by other countries that are still one family with us, namely Malaysia. After malaysia new claims we acknowledge with pride that it is ours. But when there are several cultures that have not been claimed, we ignored it. Though Indonesia is famous for its cultural diversity, but we are not ignored. Should, without waiting for claim, we have already noted, acknowledge, and defend it as ours, Indonesia.

    We must realize the importance of national culture bequeathed by teens or students? Because the next generation of this nation can maintain its continuity. If at this moment they are no longer with the existence of cultural pride in his own nation, then certainly in the future, our generation will be more foreign culture and do not know his own people.

    I personally think, Indonesian culture is a noble heritage to be preserved by the younger generation. Why do I say that?

    Firstly, Indonesian cultures is important asset and very diverse so that we can be proud at the international level. Culture is social life which cannot be separated from public life. The young generation must preserve the culture of Indonesia in order not to become extinct and disappear under the influence of globalization. Entering the era of globalization, in which foreign influences began to enter, the maintenance of these cultural elements should be improved. The young generation today is probably far from authentic Indonesian culture not because they are not interested, but because of the lack of government appreciation for those who maintain and develop the culture of the nation. Protection of cultural done for the younger generation today and future pride of the Indonesian nation and has a strong identity as children of the nation. When they have no identity, what else can they be proud?

    Second, if the Indonesian cultures still exist, then we can promote it to other countries through the International event. Other countries will be interested in Indonesian culture, so that tourists visit to Indonesia will increase. This could increase the income of the Indonesian economy.

    From the facts above, it is important for young generation to preserve Indonesian culture.

    Young Generation Should Preserve Indonesian Culture

    I personally think that young generation should preserve Indonesian culture. Why do I say that?
    Firstly, it is Indonesian’s identity which should be preserved. As we know that cultures are nation identity. Including, Indonesian cultures are also identity for Indonesia. If our cultures fade away, Indonesia doesn’t have something that can be proud in international.
    Secondly, it can increase tourism income. By preserving our culture, tourism aspect can also develop. Because with various and original cultures of Indonesia, it can attract tourists to come to Indonesia. More tourists who come to Indonesia, more income and also foreign exchange will be got.
    Thirdly, young generation have longer time and more opportunities to preserve the culture than the older. Who can preserve our culture unless us as young generation. Because young generation have an important role to bequeath the culture to the next generation. So, the culture will not be loose or taken by other nation.
    From the facts above, it is important that young generation should preserve Indonesian culture.

    We often see many article describe something about preserve Indonesian culture, and all of us know that we should do it. But, why should the young generation preserve Indonesian culture?

    Because, firstly, by preserving culture, it means we keep our norms and values in our society. Indonesian cultures teach us politely, friendly, and etc. Example, in Javanese language there are Krama Inggil, Krama Madya, Ngoko Alus, the rules we speak politely to other person observe the age and the stratum. Of course, we want not loose our good culture, if we still want to be appreciated by other countries.

    Secondly, culture can be attractive to other countries. We can promote our culture as over tourism factory than other countries. The income from tourism can used to develop the country as well.

    Thirdly, culture is our soul since we born. If we loose our culture, it means that we are like corpses who are without soul that makes us not enthusiastic with our life. All of our working can be not perfect. The stupid person will spend his time without the result.

    Fourthly, Young generations have longer time and more opportunities to preserve the culture than the elders. Especially, supported by technology and knowledge that more available than the elders period. And it make possible the young generation more preserve the culture as well than the elders.

    From the facts above, we can conclude that the young generation SHOULD preserve Indonesian culture. Let us begin with our self like use traditional clothes proudly, learn the culture, and make a tour in Indonesia before go to other countries. Keep spirit, guys…!!

    Young Generation Should Preserve Indonesian Culture

    Culture can reflect a nation’s identity and characteristic. It is important for young generation to preserve Indonesian culture. Why do I say so?
    The first reason is because Indonesia has a lot cultures such as traditional dance, language, etc. They have high value which cannot be appreciated with anything including money. If we do not preserve them starting from the young generation, we will lose all. Nothing is left in the future.
    The second reason is when our culture lost, the next generation will never have such cuture as we have today. They will not see and feel the culture but they just hear the Indonesian culture in the past. They may lose Indonesia identity because they are easily influenced by cultures from other countries.
    From the reasons, it is clear that culture is important for the existence of a country therefore young generation should preserve Indonesian culture from now.

    I think the young generations today are not interested in watching leather puppet performance. Whereas, leather puppet show is very interesting to watch and also to learn. There are three reasons why you as young generation have to have interest in watching and learning leather puppet.
    First, when you spend the night in Yogyakarta while enjoying leather puppet show or performance, it will feel vivid. The melodious rhythm of the gamelan in harmony with the voice of the female Javanese singers will not let you fall asleep. The story presented by the “dalang” as the puppeteer as well as the storyteller will bring you into being one of the characters in the story. You will soon learn the greatness of Javanese culture in the past.
    Second, leather puppet show is a performance art that has been more than half a millennium of age, can you imagine this? Its presence has its own story, in relation with the entrance of Javanese Islam. Besides, leather puppet has depth philosophical perspective as our guidance to our life wisdom. Furthermore, in every “lakon” or series in every leather puppet show, it has one specific purpose teach us how life is. For example,in lakon: Petruk dadi Ratu (Petruk became A King). What we can learn from that lakon is how to become wise people and a good citizen.
    Third, in leather puppet show, the dalang can presents the social themes that reflect the condition of latest issues in “goro-goro” session. It is the communication media with the audiences. It makes us more interested in watching leather puppet show.
    From the reasons above, it is important for us as the young generations to learn more about leather puppet by watching the leather puppet show. So, do you want to watch?

    Why does the young generation preserve Indonesian culture?

    I think, it should be doing by the Indonesian young generation, because if they don’t do it, the Indonesian culture will be claimed by others country and we will lost it.
    In fact, there is a country, which has claimed our Indonesian culture. You all, have known who? Yeah, they are Malaysia. They have claimed our Indonesian culture, like Reog Ponorogo, Rasa Sayange song, and the others.
    Second, it is all our culture from our ancient and we must preserve it. All of Indonesian culture is come from our old ancient, and we should respect to them by preserve and guard it all.
    Third, preserve Indonesian culture is our obligation. Who will be the keeper another us? So, now we must preserve our Indonesian culture.
    From the text arguments above, it is important for young generation to preserve Indonesian culture.

    Now should we young ones preserve our culture? As all the other fellow students (who did not submit this assignment late – except Januardi) I second these opinions on 2 main foundation of argument.

    One. Culture is not something to be taken lightly. You may say that it’s just another piece of art, same like modern rap and break-dancing, but inside the outer layer of that paradigma, culture is on a whole other level. Cultures are values and norms, shaped by time and perfected by its people, creating a specialty, a face, an identity and are contained within the dances, the arts that we see today. For example, traditional dances dont just look good and graceful, it tells a story on how to be polite and how to act in order to be respected. These values and norms that creates a healthy society are intertwined within these arts we call culture. So thats my first reason why i believe that we young ones should preserve our culture, to protect and preserve what is contained and implicitly shown in them, the very thing that guides our society to better and an orderly living, the values and norms.

    Two. Looking more on a profit-oriented practical scale, culture is a national asset. Culture (as I said before) contains arts and values that are created by those who preserve it, thus creating a significantly different, intriguing, fascinating art that differs itself from any other in the world. Making it something unique. People all around the world is intrested to things that are one in a million, eye-catching, breath-taking, new, exciting which are all provided by culture. Therefore culture is a great asset of the country to reel in tourist from all over the world, taking in profit from them coming in to see our identity, our face, our culture.

    In conclusion, we can pull that yes, we young generations should preserve culture because it brings a betterment to our lives. By preserving the values and norms that guides us and giving our country profit so they have (even more) money to take care of us.

    If the question is about did young generation should preserve culture, I will answer it by saying yes they should do it. Because I think that the culture itself are very important thing and it will be beneficial for us if we preserve it. Here I will give you some arguments to prove it to you,
    First, we know that nowadays people love to have a trip, they love to go to any places apart from their country, and when they go to have a trip, they would prefer to choose to have tourism in a country which is have something different and something unique like a culture. we see here Indonesia with more than a hundred clan have so many culture that is very unique, therefore I believe that when our culture are being preserve and we shown it and make it as our mascot it will attract people to come here and it will be very beneficial for us.
    Second, we know that form of culture is not just a dance or song or another traditional art, but norm is also the part of culture. We know that we are Indonesian people are well known that we have a good norm; we are polite, friendly and kind that another people like it. those norm and another norm like say no to drugs, alcohol and free sex are so important not only to attract people to come here, but also to create a healthy life, safe environment, comfortable place for us to life and another benefit for us.
    With those two arguments that I have given to you, i believe that culture should be preserved.
