      I feel I should amend my own e-mail, lest I give the wrong impression,
      as well. My apologies. 'Kokusaika', conceptually, has become
      'internationalization' or more accurately, 'expantion into
      globalism/global economy' despite the initial coining as an almost
      totally Japanese-European prospect. Socially, however, this concept only
      goes so far - like an american claiming 'oneness' with citizens of
      Bangladesh because they're currently eating vindaloo with some naan.
      Your mileage may vary depending on region and subject matter as to how
      truly 'kokusaika' something is.
