Indonesia should only take advances from the positive side, whether it is progress in the economic, political, social, cultural, and technology. For that Pancasila values should we use as a filter of value taken, because the values of Pancasila in accordance with the circumstances of the Indonesian nation. Five Principles derived from religion and customs were excavated from Indonesia.
