Personally, I hate it. I think its sad how everywhere is kind of becoming the same. Why even travel? It's so depressing.

I did travel and the rest of the world is highly undeveloped compared to the United States.

Globilization is a FAIL.

It would be kind of nice to be able to visit a far away place without seeing a Coca Cola or Pepsi sign. For the most part I don't really care though, the worst aspect of globalization is all the outsourcing of American jobs.

American culture is not that great!
I refuse to let those chains define American culture.

I don't eat at them in the US and I don't eat at them when I travel overseas.

People have never been that different from one another. Communication has been the major reason for conflict between cultures through time. Rural farmers in Russia, the Philippines, and the united states aren't that drastically different from one another.

I work with colleagues from all over the world, all of them have the same basic sense of humor and we all get along rather well.

Still reasons to go and see the world.

I could find no choice that fit my opinion. Globalization is bad. People need to have a country to be loyal to and know as home.

I don't think it's a good thing but I don't give a darn about "cultural diversity". Diversity is stupid.
