Could you tell more about the lo implications you have in mind? Views on
other cultures are often illuminating our own "shadows". I had never
thought of resistance to change (or innovation) as a cultural factor,
rather as an individual factor. Thanks for the examples you care to find
and give.

Also, what would you link this cultural trend to? Where does it stem from ?
