Globalization has allowed people from all over the world to interact with each other in many different ways; educationally, economically, in the work force, and particularly in inter-ethnic marriages. This is perhaps one of the biggest forms of globalization that allows cultures from all over the world to blend. Steger mentions that cultural globalization does not blend cultures, but instead becomes one of the same.

We are not susceptible to become one of the same kind but rather our own individual in a consistent society. With the many cultures and religions, there is so much we can learn from one another. Originality is one of the most important features a person can possess, and I disagree with Steger’s comment about our culture becoming homogenized.
