Read the following passage and answer the questions 46 to 50

Global village proponents see the world community coming closer together as a common culture is negotiated and, not incidentally as we became more economically interconnected. “We are witnessing the revolution of the empowerment of the media consumer,” argues Reuters Television Director Enrique Jara. There should be little fear that individuals cultures and national identities will disappear, because that culture-specific, special interest fare remains in demand. Modern media technology makes the delivery of this varied content not only possible but profitable. As a result of cultural exchanges, a global culture is created, piece by piece, but it grows more variegated and complex along the way. And even as geographically based identifies blur and fade, new subcultures based on shared tastes in music or literature or obscure hobbies, grow up. The global village is here but the problem is erosion of national sovereignty. The advanced nations of the world through their multi-national corporations are expanding their control over the international flow of information. As a result, much of the world may become even more heavily dependent on the western nations and it may be predicted about the demise of natve cultures. National culture is assaulted by direct satellite broadcasts and worldwide information distribution networks. There is a fear about worldwide democracy. Much of the world's entertainment and Journalism is being provided by a handful of enormous films, with invariably pro-profit and pro-global market political positions on the central issues of our times. There is no simple answer to the debate over protecting the integrity of local cultures. There is even disagreement over the wisdom of doing so. Media literate people should at least beware of the debate and its issues andthey may also want to consider theparadox of what Josef Joffe, editor of Germany's Weekly ‘Die Zeit’ calls the “Soft power” of America's exported culture. It “does not bend hearts” as cultural imperialism critics contend. Rather, “it twists minds in resentment and rage” He points to data collected by the Pew Global Attitudes Project. When asked if they “like American music, movies and television” large percentages of citizens in England (62%), France (65%) Germany (67%) and Italy (69%) said “Yes” But when asked if “it's good that American ideas and customs are spreading” other large percentages of people in England (33%), France (27%), Germany (24%) and Italy (43%) said “no” Like most debates over mass communication the simple answers arent always the correct answers.

  1. What is the major characteristic of the global village?

    1. Community coming closer

    2. Having common culture

    3. Less geographical boundaries

    4. All of the above

    2. Common culture is negotiated, national identities are disappearing, global culture is created, and national sovereignty is not on stake.

    3. Control on flow of information, demise of native culture, national identities are intact.

    4. Community comes closer; media consumers are powerful, content delivery is tough and runs in loss.

    Answer: a

  3. How does the global village impact cultures?

    1. Peoples are scattered and long, not connected to any one else and away from media.

    2. Close to each other, cultural exchange is not possible, identities are clearly identified, Multi-national Corporation areexpanding.

    3. Individual cultures will fade, scope of varied content, cultural exchange is possible in high order, tastes of people matches with each other.

    4. People of many countries are accepting both American music, films and television and also ideas and customs.

    Answer: b

  5. What is the crux of the passage in fine?

    1. Simple answers are always correct, America's culture always bends hearts, it never twists mind in rage.

    2. People from England, France, Germany and Italy accepted in low percentage that they like American music, movies and television.

    3. Simple answers arent always the correct answers, American music; movies and television are liked by most of the people from England France, Germany and Italy.

    4. Media literate people should be aware of many issues, western nations do not dominate in information flow, and cultural imperialism is appreciated.

    Answer: c
