Media Globalization: The Fight to Preserve Local Cultures, Ideologies, and Identities

The technological advances in electronic communication have further complicated the nationalist viewpoints which many countries have struggled to preserve over the years. The position is even more compounded with the easy access to media through increased and borderless connections via the Internet. Tri-Continent and/or so-called Third World countries are especially vulnerable in preserving or propagating local, cultural, and indigenous and symbolic vestiges of the so-called pre-globalization era. It is instructive to note that it is not only popular/dominant societies that infiltrates or even clouds these issues, but diasporic groups from these so-called “subaltern” nations are sometimes conflicted by populist views propagated through social media. The discussion then is how do the so called “subaltern” nations react, regain and preserve local cultures, ideologies and identities or whether ( to play devil’s advocate) the issue needs to be a focus on a global culture?
