It's a mixed bag from my personal experience. Some might like it. Some might not, as they feel like it takes away their own identity. People not seeing them for who they are. I will tread lightly with that, unless you know them well.
The truth is strictly what the ones in power perceives it to be.
Enjoy any good things, even the little and menial ones, as you will never know what impending distresses could descend upon you in a moment.
