Question from the Internet:
“In 200 words or more, what are three important developments in globalization?”
What we call “Globalization" is just an instinctive “catch-up" with the evolutionary conditions we find ourselves in.
1.We have evolved into a world that is fully integrated, interdependent as the natural system we exist in, we are one species of, is a system that develops towards a most optimal integration of its diverse, seemingly incompatible parts.
As a result we try to react, adjust our human system accordingly.
2.The problem is that so far we have been reacting in our usual, completely self-serving, self-justifying, exploitative, individualistic, nationalistic ways. We have been trying to use the global interconections for selfish profit, succeeding at each other’s expense.
As a result we are directly becoming cancer-like in Humanity’s and Nature’s fully integrated body.
3.So we urgently need to switch from the blind, instinctively egotistic development to a conscious, “Nature-like" path, rebuilding our human interconections, governing, economic and social systems based on Nature’s global, integral template.
Otherwise we won’t be able to solve our mounting global problems, we won’t be able to safeguard our collective human survival.
