Everyone today is affected by globalization

Throughout history mankind everywhere has been demonstrating globalized beliefs. Globalization is a process of interaction and integration among people, companies, and governments of different nations. It is a process driven by international trade and investment and aided by information technology. No matter where people live, individuals are always affected by globalization on a daily basis. As well it is a connection, a spreading of concepts, goods, and ideas.
Think about how much stuff you own that was made or manufactured in an undeveloped country or simply a nation-state where labour is cheap. In 2001, American consumers spent 102 billion dollars on products made in China. In 2011, American consumers spent 399 billion dollars on products made in China. It is obvious that globalization has increased and continues to affect everyone.
As well, what you watch, see, or experience has large effects on your identity. Things like YouTube, Facebook, the news, or even reality TV helps us stay connected and can keep us up to date on current events and trends, which in turn keeps us globalized.

While although a substantially large amount of today’s population is globalized, global concepts simply cannot take the entire population of the Earth into account.
There are many examples of complete isolation from both people and the globalized ideas and beliefs surrounding them.
For example, North Sentinel Island. New Delhi has set up a three-mile exclusion zone around the island to protect the inhabitants, known as the Sentinelese. They remain one of, and possibly the most isolated group of people in the world. The Sentinelese are just one of about 100 uncontacted tribes left in the world. And those are just ones we are somewhat aware of. While their names have become global, they as people know nothing of our people and the globalized beliefs and traditions we carry. Many people around the world are self-sustaining and have developed ways to not need the help of the world. Although few, there are still people in the world who have absolutely no contact from global civilization. Therefore, to say that everyone is affected by globalization, no matter who they are or where they are, would be false due to the lack of contact from the world of these few isolated people and tribes left.
