The term Globalization is thus often used as a code word that stands for a tremendous diversity of issues and problems that serves as a front for a variety of theoretical and political positions. For some theorist, globalization is seen as a process of standardization in which a globalized media and consumer culture circulates the globe creating sameness and homogeneity everywhere, thus bringing to light the bland and boring universality and massification in the modern projects. Grounded in historical vision, critical theory stresses the continuities and discontinuities between past, present, future and the possibility of constructive political action and individual and group practice grounded in positive potentials in the current constellation of forces and possibilities. Conservatives see globalization as a threat to national and local cultures and the sanctity of tradition, while some theorists are claiming that globalization is replacing concepts like modernity and post modernity as the central thematic of contemporary theorizing.
