Soldiers and Family members will increase the global integration at a dramatically high pace for communication, transportation, and computer technology making the world more interdependent than ever. Foer makes this statement explicitly more related to those who become complacent in their own communities. “Other countries have greeted soccer with relative indifference. The Indian subcontinent and Australia come to mind. But the United States is perhaps the only place where a loud portion of the population actively disdains the game, even campaigns against it. The anti-soccer lobby believes, in the words of USA Today’s Tom Weir, “that hating soccer is more American than apple pie, driving a pickup, or spending Saturday afternoons channel surfing with the remote control.” (Foer 16) The military will continue to influence the differences and integrations for the migration of popular cultures and the effectiveness for globalization.

Communities with diverse cultures have the greater percentage for influencing American and other countries music, fashion, food, movies, TV, and the markets for global consumerism. Americans have repackaged culture products which are received and then transmit the product to the rest of the nations, and do so more dazzlingly than the other countries. American history as a military of immigrants will teach society to synthesize and incorporate the culture and popular expressions of a wide range of nationalities and ethnicities. Communities are the consumers of American intellectual and artistic influences par excellence. Ferla makes the same connection as the military is linked to these countries mentioned, “The globalization of popular culture and its many and varied effects around the world. Frequently, this process has been driven and dominated by developed countries and their transnational companies. However, the peoples of Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Caribbean have also appropriated and transformed European and North American cultural forms, infusing them with their own cultures and concerns.” (Ferla 6) The combination of interracial relationships and the open-minded families collectively joined through communities will take on new forms for understanding the effects for popular culture submission. Cultures dissimilar across the region intertwine through the combination of the military and the choice of sharing and learning new ideas from what is unknown or misunderstood. Americans, other countries, and tribes have specific values, religious beliefs, traditional foods, and normal daily activities specifically different and generally easy to understand for the sake of a better way of thinking. Appia illustrates how certain aspects of life becomes a norm whereas others perceive these actions as appalling. “Many Americans eat pigs but won’t eat cats. It would be hard to make the case that cats are, say, dirtier or more intelligent that pigs. And since there are societies where people still eat cats, we know that it is possible for human beings to eat them

with pleasure and without danger. Most American meat eaters who refuse to eat cats have only the defense that the very thought of it fills them with disgust.” (Apia 20) With the incorporation

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
