    Local cultures are gradually changing because of globalization. In your opinion, does globalization destroy or enrich cultures?

    globalisation homogenises cultures
    sometimes that means simply one culture overtaking another (e.g. western values and goods via capitalism)
    or that can also mean plagueish and uncivilised values bleeding into a larger culture via immigration
    there is "good globalisation" and "bad globalisation" in this sense, but overall, globalisation is good;
    technology, transport, science, ideas, cultures interacting and global states working together co-operatively is usually good
    it's when globalisation's bad effects are portrayed as good things (e.g. islamism) when globalisation gets very bad;
    cultures can interact with others, but at the end of the day, states should, to some very minimalist extent, recognise their domestic national cultures over others, as it's healthy to have an identity in a world of diversity

    Globalisation* you turd
