Please write a 1250-word analytical essay that dissects the relationship between globalization and democracy. You have examined globalization already through a cultural and economic lens. What remains is to look at it through the political lens. Most analyses discuss how Western concepts of democracy flow through globalization, communicating American principles and values to non-Western societies. Some see this as a great positive, others as a detriment. This analysis, however, asks you to do something different: examine the political flow of ideas within globalization IN REVERSE. In other words, examine and explain just how globalization creates a two-way street in idea exchange and is not just a one-way route. Do this by finding and elaborating real-life examples in your personal world that give evidence to this process: in what ways does your own life and the way you like to live it reflect and is influenced by ideas/concepts/worldviews that are NOT native to your local region but in all likelihood came down to you because of how interconnected the global system is today. Be sure in your analysis, as always, to ground your observations and opinions in actual scholarship. Being able to back up your argument with research is what takes an opinion and elevates it to analysis, moving your position from rhetorical to analytical. Compose a response in an MS Word (or similar application) document. Ensure you address all parts of the topic, and cite sources appropriately. This assignment should be written in APA format.
