How can we adapt ourselves to global changes?

Question from the Internet:

““Globalization has made national boundaries more porous but not irrelevant. Nor does globalization mean the creation of a universal community.”?”

Most of our confusions about “globalization” could be solved by understanding why and how we find ourselves a globally integrated and interdependent world, and how our true, inherent human nature actually works.

Existence in a globally integrated and interdependent world is not something “man-made”. We evolved into a global, integral world as a result of Nature’s laws and evolution forcing us to become similar to Nature’s integral system.

How we use “globalization”, the inevitable global interconnections is another matter. Driven by our inherently egocentric, subjective, individualistic, and exploitative nature we try to use, exploit the global interconnections, “markets” for selfish profit at the expense of others. This is how our ruthless competitive instincts work.

It is the same with our individual identity, sense of uniqueness, and our culture and nationality. They are embedded in us, we cannot coercively remove, suppress and cancel such traits.

Thus — since we cannot “undo” globalization that is necessitated by Nature’s strict, unforgiving laws and evolution’s relentless progress — we need a unique, purposeful, and practical educational method, that can teach us, help us tangibly feel how Nature’s integration work, how inevitably interdependent we have all become, and we can adapt ourselves to Nature’s integral template above and against our inherent nature, without oppressing, erasing, removing anything — but actually using even our individual, national, cultural uniqueness, all our diversity to facilitate the global integration.
