: The reason I have this view is because I find it sad that cultures are being lost forever to this huge drive toward global "Americanisation". The huge amounts of money spent by these multinationals to convince the youth around the world that to be accepted by their peers, they have to put on this pseudo-American front at the expense of their own cultures.

: Anyway, most people who support this campaign probably do so because of the high-handed, bully-boy tactics of McDeath and because of the way they treat their employees.

It all adds up to the Americanisation of cultures everywhere in the world, making one huge homogenised culture. This includes every aspect of culture, religion, food, TV, technology, language, music, politics, technology, cinema. Any thoughts on how all these cultural aspects have been effected by Americanisation, esp. in Europe?
