“Globalism” now, and after the pandemic

Question from the Internet:

“What will happen if globalists get to their goals?”

When we search for the meaning, definition of “globalism”, “globalization” we get the impression that it is something “man-made”, that it relates to markets, trade, societies.

But this approach is false.

“Globalization” — existence in a globally integrated and interdependent system — is not “man-made”, but it is an evolutionary necessity, it is a state we developed into.

We are just using the global, integral infrastructure that Nature’s evolution organized around us. Without Humanity becoming similar to nature — through Human society becoming integrated and interdependent as all other systems, subsystems in Nature, we do not have the compatibility and right to exist in the system.

It is another matter of how we are using the inevitably global, integral infrastructure. And at present, we are using them exactly how we use everything else: inherently selfishly, egotistically, succeeding, and surviving at each other’s expense.

And this Human use of “globalization” is the opposite of how other parts of Nature use the integral infrastructure. This is why “Human Globalization” is only beneficial for a very small minority while it manipulates, exploits the majority.

So as Nature’s strict, unforgiving laws that sustain integration and the balance in it are obligatory for us as well, the present goals, system that “globalists” are using is doomed to fail. And we can already see how the present — excessively overconsuming, ruthlessly competitive, and exploitative — Human system is collapsing.

The inevitable, all-encompassing socio-economic crisis has been brewing for decades, but now the pandemic has finally pulled the plug on the system as all present stimulus, bailout packages, promises will fizzle out and all non-essential production/consumption will cease by the time the pandemic ends.

Thus we will have no other choice but to learn and implement how “globalism/globalization” unfolds in Nature, and then we will have to rebuild our Human relationships and our global, Human society based on Nature’s global, integral template.
