Transcript of Globalization in the blending of cultures

Cultural Globalization
Cultural globalization is the rapid movement of ideas, attitudes, and values across national borders.
This sharing of ideas generally leads to greater interconnectedness and interaction between peoples of diverse cultures and ways of life, which can have both positive and negative results.

Even during times when most societies tended to exist in relative isolation, international trade and exploration often led to transformative exchanges of ideas. It was the rapid technological developments of the 20th century, however, that accelerated the process considerably, and this really caused people to begin contemplating globalization as a broad concept. Decade by decade, telephones, radio, jet air travel, and television media spread information around the world with increasing efficiency. This form of communication is why businesses are increasing.
Pros of Cultural Globalization
This form of exchange can reduce the acts of discrimination amongst countries and would help those in other countries to communicate more.
Cons of Cultural Globalization
It is said that it effects national identities. Meaning that the languages of a culture could become extinct and the specific history, values and traditions may go away.
1. The Silk Road was a trade route between China and the Mediterranean Sea area and it allowed the exchange of not only goods, but culture and knowledge.
2. Satellite television allows shows from one country to be broadcast in many others.
3. International transportation grew rapidly once people began to leave for jobs, housing, and protection.
