Globalization is the process of uniting or convergence of economic, social and cultural norms, habits and principles in countries where before the economy and society had pronounced national features.
With the development of modern means of communication and transport, as well as the fall of the Iron Curtain , which divided the world into two camps, the processes of economic integration and cultural interpenetration of all leading world powers began. Symbols of globalization can be considered, for example, the Internet, iPhone, McDonalds and Selfie . Another example of globalization incidents is the celebration of Halloween and Valentinki in distant Khabarovsk.
Opponents of globalization, not without a shadow of justice, believe that globalization can finally erase the unique cultural features of many peoples, which in general is not good.
