cultural diffusion, eg, 40% of London's total population was from an ethnic minority group

bigger countries such as the United States, may overrun the other, smaller countries' cultures, leading to those customs and values being faded away, AmericanizationStarbucks, McDonald's, Burger King, Pizza Hut, KFC and Domino's Pizza

undermine the preservation of these traditions by cultivating in young people a resentment of the culture of their elders

arouse superiority, those who are more fortunate/ well-off dont care about the others
