  1. Could we speak of a 'postmodern era'
  2. People and cultures are getting increasingly mixed each other
  3. Some borderlines that still remain

The world is changing every day. There are transformations in all fields and we all sense it. Modernity could be a right word to describe the 20th century, which is characterized by a century of progress, obviousness and dualistic bipolarity in international relations. The 21st century on the contrary should be a postmodern era. Ideologies have failed or at least have evolved, so-called universal values are getting just relative ones and cultures are getting mixed. In fact, this is the way I understand the subject, a discussion about "men from everywhere and nowhere" who would represent a world of everything and nothing. Some might say post-modernity is already dated. Indeed, this concept comes from the mid-1950s but I think it has never been as accurate as today and it is a pertinent way to describe the "new age".
