What do you see as the main positives/negatives of your culture?

If you live in a Western culture, what do you see are the principal positive/negative points?

I would say general freedom, high living standards, and peace are the positives of Western culture. The major negative IMO is pop culture (and not capitalism as some may say, since we wouldn't have high living standards without it). I think pop culture media distorts how people think, and imparts bs values onto people. Granted, the average Joe is not that smart, even still I don't think it makes sense to put stock in what some magazine or TV show says.

I guess environmental degradation is a concern, but then this involves all countries and not just the West.
