Culturally conditioned self-gratification

Other Names:
Culturally conditioned hedonism

Among Western educated or influenced people, the acculturation received from the family tends to condition the individual to operate from a search for psychological well-being and adjustment rather than from the aim of global socio-interrelatedness. The result in society of such gratification-seeking is the disruption of conventional bonds of relationship like marriage, and an incapacity to appropriate the needs of others beyond immediate relations. A spectator mentality toward mass suffering is created, and materialism substituted for social consciousness.
