Globalization can have good and bad consequences. Yes, it allows us to communicate with friends, family members, co-workers and clients around the world instantaneously.
However, many regions and even individual countries cherish their isolation and cultural uniqueness and aren't particularly thrilled with those who don't understand foreign cultures. Globalization blurs those lines between different areas of the world, but that is also not always a bad thing.
For example, think of what happened in Iraq after democracy was introduced there.
Before, people in the Middle East were told lies about the horrors of the western world in an attempt to make the people hate Americans and stand behind the atrocious things their own leaders were doing.
But, after the war began in Iraq and democracy was brought there, the people had better, more open access to the internet and world media and saw that most of what they had been told was untrue.
