This paper discusses how the world today is made up of distinctly different cultures that must be accepted and accommodated as much as law and common decency will allow. It looks at how resulting culture clashes can often make or break good relationships in business, as well as the existing populations. The paper concludes that educating the world with regard to cultural habits and expectations would probably alleviate a lot of the discord felt by populations.

From the Paper:

"Communication barriers are a consideration with the problems we have globally. According to Schaefer, (2009), we are experiencing "culture war" (p. 67). Feeling across the globe since the 9/11 incident range from mild to dynamic. Culture has become a bigger issue than ever because of the misconceptions. Fanatics grab onto the part of a culture, whether it is true or not, and commit violent acts against others because of distorted perceptions as to the value of other cultures. With the technological advances that allow information is processed in seconds, due to cell phones and internet, all nations should be well informed about other cultures enough to realize we have radical sectors in all nations. "
