Noorullah Azizi, Ali Ahmad
If we define culture as the sum up of knowledge, beliefs, art, morals, law, custom and other shared common traits of a nation, so the complex of those attitude, beliefs, emotions, and values of society which relate to the political system and to political issues, is called “political culture” which usually symbolized by national flag and national anthem. Political culture of a nation is determined through the geographical, climatic, historical, and religious features of the nation. As political culture deals with the attitudes, behavior’s, views and perceptions which are changing variables and dynamics issues, so it is obvious that political culture is liable to change. A political culture is not static; it changes as a result of its response to new ideas, industrialization, the impact of new leaders, population changes and many other factors. Within a political system the role of political culture is divers in nature. This characterizes the dynamic view of political culture. All political system are subject to change in macro-level, as well in macro –level the individuals attitudes, believes, values and orientations are also changeable. As beliefs and values of the people change, with the change of time, so culture as a whole and political culture as its part is subject to change, but every substantive change in the political culture of a nation might takes decades or even centuries. However, no government, now days’, can to prevent its citizens from political awareness. technology, mass media communications, internet and the like, with the impact of “globalization “are the causes which give more dynamics to the political culture.
