Globalization of Culture and Cultural Imperialism

The world is changing in an implacable way - nobody knows where it goes, but it seems that high technologies make Earth to whirl faster. The time has come when every person in the world may immediately obtain information about the most recent events in the world, and what is more, to influence those events. Globalization helps a lot in economical and political issues, but potentially it can cause an irreparable damage to local cultures. As great corporations in various industries absorb small businesses, great and rich culture is swallowing up little ones. Of course, everything is not so destructive as pessimists think. From its other side, globalization brings openness to people erasing cultural barriers and providing a common language for the discussion. Globalization imposes substantial obligations on American foreign policy: it should be steady, consistent and peaceful. Culture achieves the best development when it concerned with conflict based on national, religious or social differences. In the article “In Praise of Cultural Imperialism? Effects of Globalization on Culture” David Rothkop indicates three broad categories: religious warfare, ethnic conflict, and conflict between “cultural cousins”, approving the theory that the most difficvult relationships are arising between the closest relatives.
