I do think there are some negative effects of globalization, but most of them are positive. For example, in an oppressed society getting information about other cultures convinces the people that their government is abusive. They want the lifestyle and advantages they see. This is why oppressive regimes try to limit the transmission of television and Internet to their subjects.
