What is traditionalistic culture?
Decisions are made by and for the elites. which focuses on the elitist culture and making sure that things do not change very much.
This culture is sort of in-between the other two.Like the moralistic culture, political parties are of limited importance and political salaries are likely to be low. However, the motivation behind this culture is very different - the elites in this society are motivated to keep things as they have always been (status quo) or maintain “tradition.” Generally, one party controls the politics because two competitive parties might encourage voters to seek change and play the two parties off each other to get that change. This culture is generally elitist, with the wealthy benefiting from the decisions and efforts to keep the poor (and often minorities) from voting. The origins of this culture trace its roots in the South to the slave culture in which the elites (owners) assumed that they knew best and that they would take care of the slaves.
