In your opinion do view globalization, as the new westernization....?

Why I ask that is cause both have things in common. One, both of them have advances in technology. Also these two factors cause great social/economic changes. Another important change is education changes greatly after globalization or westernization. Also after both events, cultural exchange becomes common. Both of these events cause free trade. Along with all of that happening living conditions rise a lot, compared with before. Democratization, is another key factor that comes along with globalization and westernization. Life expectancy also gets higher after globalization and/or westernization. How much a person earns become higher than, what it was before. Literacy increases after the events. Also, before you answer this question and wonder. Westernization specifically targeted at the west like the US, Canada, all of western Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, South Korea, South Africa, and Singapore. Globalization is where a primitive area in the world transforms into a more global area meaning, it changes with the influence of most of the outside world and gets more modernized tahn it was before the event.


On the last sentance I spelled than wrong, sorry.

    Yes now that you put in that aspect it really fits together. Globalization in geography is the a compression of space so that nearly anything is accessible while westernization (which I don't have nearly as much prior knowledge about) is to some extent the more or less the same But besides democratization, periphery countries are where globalization manifests by transforming the layout of the area by increasing that developing area in matter that usually interconnects the world at the cost of the periphery area. Westernization is less complex in the sense it was forced upon the areas where it occured where globalization is not as forced, but chosen by the periphery and semi periphery area in hopes of prospering which usually only occurs for the corrupted government, the international/national companies that are inhabiting that area who truly become more wealthy. But like you said they do have a lot in common stemming from many various things. A post colonial force is more accurate to westernization than globalization at times however

    Well, globalization is a coined terms from the western civilization. So, it's easy for people to think that it is some sort of globalization.

    The problem is, when people think of 'globalization', there is some sort of stereotypes going on their head. Like consumerization, capitalization etc. But it's actually not about that. Globalization is something inevitable, it's basically a collective description of human nature to always want to do something more that what they have.

    Unless everyone is a devoted Buddhist, then globalization will happen sooner or later.

    I consider at lot of globalization is a mirrored image of western tradition, however you have got to believe approximately what globalization quite is. If you believe it is only the unfold of quick meals, GAP, and Starbucks, you're improper. We are coming to an generation wherein we would possibly emerge as having one international executive, they usually have got to arise with a brand new tradition for connecting us all in combination. The new factor now's the atmosphere. Environmentalism goes to be the brand new faith of this New World Order. One planet with one executive and one identification. More vigor over guy type.

    In my opinion "globalization" is a matter of fact.

    Humans wish for companionship even while in the mists of a crowd. We search out and find better and better ways of communicating with each other.

    Like it our not, even Americans are “social” creatures and we will find a way to make “globalization” a reality.

    We won’t be happy ‘til we can get in EVERYONE’S face.
