Even though it may seem obvious, the fraternal dimension of a community of countries that have the Portuguese language as their common bond needs to be emphasized when faced with the threats of cultural models that seek global hegemony in the wake of globalization. Although the public in general is unaware of it, there is a legally established nascent community that has the aim of fostering closer relations among the seven countries on three continents that have Portuguese as their official language. Even though some have viewed it with disdain, the Community of Portuguese Language Countries (CPLP) could become a productive initiative for promoting diplomatic, cultural and social harmonization of those peoples and nations that embrace the new era of globalization through their common cultural heritage of the Portuguese language.
