Nationalism can no longer contain a global tide

Friday night, I watched “Latin Music USA”, a wonderful TV series focusing on the fusion of Latin sounds with jazz, rock, country and rhythm and blues, from its struggling early days through its emergence into what used to be a white, anglo music dominance, as it simultaneously became a global phenomenon.

From Ritchie Vallens, Santana, Ricky Martin, Gloria Estefan or Shakira, the entire planet picked up what was good and recognized the artists.

It showed is that whether we like it or not, we've become a global society and whatever good is offer is likely to be embraced by the whole world, except for these narrow-minded policies and politics like Trump, Le Pen, Netanyahu or Kim Jong-un's.
