There are many examples of globalization. Fundamentalism, for instance, is a way of communication and globalization of religions. But local phenomena are very different. Therefore the periphery is where the management of communication and globalization takes place. Another specific issue concerns the de-ideologization of politics, with no distinction between left and right side of belonging and behaviour. But the most relevant effect is the globalization of poverty, not coming from money deregulation but from market rules and consumerism.
