Question from the Internet:
“What are some positive aspects of globalization?”
The most positive aspect of Globalization is that it is not something we Humans invented, made, thus there is nobody to blame for it.
“Globalization" means existing in a globally integrated, interdependent world. This is something Nature’s evolution is “forcing on us". Nature itself is a “globally" integrated, interdependent system, and since Humanity — as one of Nature’s species — is integral part of Nature, our continuing survival, development depends on becoming similar, compatible with Nature.
The question is how we use our inevitable global interconnections, interdependence.
If we use them selfishly, for our own egocentric, subjective, exploitative calculations, profit, success at the expense of others — as we do now — we behave like cancer in the body. We are already nearing a seemingly inevitable self-destruction as a result.
On the other hand, by using our unique Human intellect — capable of critical self-assessment, initiating self-change, self-upgrade — we can learn how to live in our global, integral evolutionary conditions according to Nature’s template: building such positive, mutually responsible, mutually complementing connections, cooperations, circulation and communication that creates and nurtures life.
This way we can give birth to a completely new, globally integrated Human society that creates and nurtures a qualitatively much higher, collective, truly Human life — being similar to Nature.
