In their Nationalism, Globalization, and Orthodoxy, Victor Roudometof and Roland Robertson describe globalisation as a “social process in which the constraints of geography on social and cultural arrangements recede and in which people become increasingly aware that they are receding”; the concept is essentially the gradual manoeuvring around traditional political, social, and cultural barriers in order to closer unite countries of the world to forge a new, all-inclusive, global society. The idea of universalising social institutions has existed throughout the course of world history, manifested at various times through imperialist treatises, trade agreements, and imperial conquest. Roudometof and Robertson claim globalisation has existed since the “sixteenth century, the global structure of the world” involving “the gradual rise of nation-states as part of the process of globalisation itself”; in fact, the conceptual “presuppositions for the rise of nationalism are closely linked with the new spatial connections inscribed by globalisation”. The lowest common denominator of globalisation is the eradication of autonomy in all forms for the sake of a benefactor mission or belief. In the case of sixteenth-century Europe, imperialism permeated all aspects of foreign policy, the modus operandi of the day serving the interests of a single party or government. Today, globalisation seeks to permeate all aspects of cultural practice, trade, and policy-making. What differentiates globalism from imperialism, however, is the theory that globalism is an endeavour established to benefit all nations and people. The concept of globalisation, according to Dilip K. Das “cannot be considered novel”; although the “contemporary era of globalisation is around a quarter of a century old, during the last decade the concept of globalisation has acquired a great deal of currency, relevance, acceptance and emotive force
