I disagree

It has been argued to me that Globalization is just another form of Colonization and that it stifles individualism and kills the heritage and cultures around the world. It has been argued that Globalization is to be resisted at all cost.

I feel that while Colonization was a mandatory consequence of a military conflict while Globalization is the result of the overwhelming success of a way of life. These are fundamental differences that, on the long run, will lead to the inevitable dominance of globalization.

Globalization, is, in my opinion, a good thing. While I agree that cultures will disappear and centuries old heritage will be wipe out as a result, I also believe that Globalization will eradicate some of the world’s most controversial issues such as racism, wars, religions, poverty, access to medicine, etc. As the world becomes of one mind, differences between people will cease to be measured along the lines of race, religion or nationality. The world will be divided between the haves and the have-nots. And, while like everywhere else, there will be tension between these two groups, they will, at least, understand each other.

Globalization is the unquestionable conclusion to capitalism. We cannot escape it. It will have some sad consequences but it’s inevitability compels us to accept it or be wiped aside by it.

The only question I have is whether I will be given a second chance to make my case

kinda funny tht ppl wont comment when you talk about things like globalization.....but will do when it comes to relationships....dunt we all like drama!!
I agree with u tht globalization will break down a lot of walls, but there are two sides to a coin and tht will never change.....colonization led to the development of many countries but at the same time it was holding back pplz sentiments and a severe form of slavery in ones own country.

Haroun self delusion is never a pretty thing. One should graciously accept defeat and not keep rehashing it in the vain hope of winning an already lost argument ;)

Colonization aside, tell your readers what happened on Thursday!? Everyone's DYING to know!

Globalization is. With the fall of the post-cold-war system, globalization is what has come to replace it. The only way to avoid it is to erect all kinds of barriers to your country (dont let anyone in, dont let anyone out, dont let any products or services in and out) which in the end will do nothing but make your citizens poorer, less educated, and generally less happy. There's no upshot. There may be disadvantages to globalization (mcdonalds everywhere, etc etc) but the benefits WAY outweigh the costs and anyways like I already said you can't really STOP it.
