Globalization is our New RealityWell! I finally got my computer back so I’m back in action. It has been a tumultuous few of weeks. The Iranian election demonstrations and Michael Jackson’s death are both examples of how globalization has redefined our new realities. The Iranian election demonstrations have shown that globalization makes domestic situations global in character despite all of the efforts of the Iranian government to isolate its actions from the eyes of the world.

Well! I finally got my computer back so I’m back in action. It has been a tumultuous few of weeks.  The Iranian election demonstrations and Michael Jackson’s death are both examples of how globalization has redefined our new realities. The Iranian election demonstrations have shown that globalization makes domestic situations global in character despite all of the efforts of the Iranian government to isolate its actions from the eyes of the world.

Another example of our current global reality is Michael Jackson’s death. The sincere global outpouring of grief has again shown that he was not simply a national figure but actually a global one that transcended any national character that he may have begun with. Both of these instances show how we really live in a global world where we identify with people and things that go beyond our national boundaries.  We see our national identities according to our past. Today our global identities are where we really live and where we will be going towards in the future.
