Page 117 of Theory Toolbox particularly caught my eye as this page introduced the idea of globalization in terms of world time and world space. Globalization does indeed involve the compression and increased awareness in human interaction across world time and world space, and has become an ever-increasing buzzword since the 1970s. The time table directly reflects this sudden intensification, as the time it took to travel the globe exponentially increased in such a short period of time in the later half of the 1900s. It awes me to think that we can now travel in an aircraft at 700 mph! Likewise, since the spread of ideas across the globe has been facilitated by agents of globalization, such as this one, the world is becoming a smaller space. People are becoming more aware of everyone and every event around the globe due to news availability, the internet, etc. The borders of states are being weakened as the world faces challenges like pollution, disease, and the influence of Non-Governmental Organizations which don’t take heed of national borders. As the book mentions, transnational corporations are prevalent. With the world becoming more integrated, I feel that people must have begun to change their perception of space in that the world itself seems smaller and more interconnected.
