Adapting to “Globalization” is not an ethical challenge, it is following Nature’s laws!

Question from the Internet:

“Which specific ethical challenge of globalization must be addressed primarily by your country? Why?”

I am not sure if it is an “ethical” challenge, but we all have to come to terms with what “globalization” actually means.

“Globalization” means existing in a globally integrated and fully interdependent world, not because we built it this way, but because Nature’s evolution is forcing us into a system that is compatible with Nature.

In this system, each individual and nation has become completely, irrevocably responsible for each and every other individual and nation. This means that we cannot continue our usual lifestyle, calculations that have been based for millennia on selfish benefit, excessive accumulation of resources, survival, and success at the expense of others and Nature.

With our inherent, instinctive mindset, calculations we have all become like cancer in the world towards others and Nature.

Thus we have to learn how to become mutually responsible and mutually complementing parts, “cells/cogwheels” in this system if we want to solve problems and want to survive.

This is not an ethical challenge, this has nothing to do with our misguided, self-serving, and self-justifying ideologies, philosophies. This is all according to Nature’s very strict, unrelenting laws which we either keep, or we have no right to exist in Nature’s vast, all-encompassing system.
