Nations that dominate the face of the earth at a time implement their system and ideology throughout the globe. The contemporary age is the age of the West and it has implemented its system and ideology through Modernism and its manifestations. Unfortunately, they have reaped more harm to the world than benefits. Resultantly it is humanity at stake and the World that is slowly dying. According to the western approach the modernization theory is concerned, development is simply a matter of knowledge and technology transfer that is unproblematic and straightforward, context-free, and not disruptive of existing social and cultural arrangements in developing countries. But indeed, Modernism is not just a political theory, but a way of life strengthened by the very beliefs which are ingrained in the world through a process of slow poisoning. In this research article, we trace back the origins of Modernism, its evolution, and how it has changed over the course of history. Without understanding all these things in chronological order, we can neither challenge Modernism nor rectify any harms that it is inflicting on our society. The methodology applied in the discussion is a critical analysis based on inductive and deductive approaches. The conclusion arrived at in the article is that we should understand that Modern education, technology, and scientific advancement is the need of the hour but at the same time we cannot reject the centuries’ norms, culture, religious observations, and system of their values.
