Globalization & Culture

First of all, I was in Boston 10 days last year, I carry an EU passport, I did half my education in Europe and my family is 100% European. Yes, I did study at MIT and spent a good portion of my life there. But I dont think of myself as a citizen of any country at all. I have no nation. I think nationalism is a disease and its a disease that has really hurt the world.

Height of globalization !!!!!!!!!

Question: ? What is the height of globalization Answer: Princess Diana's death !!! Question: How come? Answer: An English Princess with an Egyptian Boyfriend crashes in a French tunnel, riding in a German car with a Dutch engine, driven by a Belgian who was high on Scottish whiskey, followed closely by Italian Paparazzi, on Japanese motorcycles, treated by an American doctor, using Brazilian medicines! And this is sent to you by an Indian, me , using Bill Gates' technology which he stole from the Japanese. And you are probably reading this on one of the IBM clones that use Taiwanese-made chips, and Korean-made monitors, assembled by Bangladeshi workers in a Singapore plant, transported by lorries driven by Indians, hijacked by Indonesians and finally sold to you!

Does Culture Matter for Globalisation?

Culture matters for globalisation in the obvious sense that it is an intrinsic aspect of the whole process of complex connectivity. However, it does not mean that culture is intrinsically more globalising on account of the ease of the stretching of the relations involved and the inherent mobility of the cultural forms and products.
