QUESTION: What is the truest definition of Globalization?
ANSWER: Princess Diana’s death.


How Come?

An English princess with an Egyptian boyfriend crashes in a French tunnel, driving a German car with a Dutch engine, driven by a Belgian who was drunk on Scottish whisky *check the bottle before you change the spelling*, followed closely by Italian paparazzi, on Japanese motorcycles; treated by an American doctor, using Brazilian medicines.

You are most probably reading this, using Bill Gate’s explorer (an American technology), on a computer that used Taiwan-made chips and a Korean-manufactured monitor, assembled by either poorly-paid Chinese or Bangladeshi workers in a Singapore or Thailand assembly plant, being transported by lorry Indian drivers, likely to be hijacked by Indonesian pirates while crossing the Strait of Malacca, unloaded by Filipino sailors and trucked to the U.S. by Mexican illegal immigrants…

This is the purest example of Globalization.
