This gem arrived in my inbox and gave me a laugh. I share it as I leave on a bit of a road trip up the Big Sur… will return to these writings soon.
A definition of globalization that I can understand and to which I now can relate:
What is the truest definition ofGlobalization?
Princess Diana’s death.
An English princess with an Egyptian boyfriend
crashes in a French tunnel,
riding in a German car
with a Dutch engine,
driven by a Belgian
who was drunk on Scottish whisky,
followed closely by Italian Paparazzi,
on Japanese motorcycles,
treated by an American doctor,
using Brazilian medicines.
This is sent to you by a Canadian,
using American Bill Gates’ technology,
and you’re probably reading this on your computer,
that uses Taiwanese chips,
and a Korean monitor,
assembled by Bangladeshi workers
in a Singapore plant,
transported by Indian truck drivers,
hijacked by Indonesians,
unloaded by Sicilian longshoremen,
and trucked to you by Mexican illegal immigrants…..
That, my friends, is Globalization !
