Our problem with Globalization

Question from the Internet:

“What are at least 2 solutions to the ethical problems of globalization?”

“Globalization” is a state, it is our evolutionary state necessitated by Nature’s laws that govern the general balance and homeostasis life depends on.

“Globalization” — existence in a globally integrated and interdependent world — is what Natural evolution determines as Nature’s developmental plan relentlessly and in a deterministic way pushes towards an ever-more optimal mutual integration of the whole system above and despite growing diversity.

Our “ethical problem” comes from the fact, that we are born — uniquely in Nature — with an inherently egocentric, subjective and individualistic consciousness and perception of reality, sensing ourselves as isolated, standalone beings that can exist on their own and have to ruthlessly fight and compete for survival, succeeding at the expense of others and Nature.

This misguided and mistaken consciousness and perception of reality were installed in us by Nature while evolution also gave us a unique human intellect that can help us recognize our misguided and mistaken worldview so we could consciously and proactively correct it.

In a globally integrated and interdependent system with our inherent worldview and behaviour, we act like cancer cells destroying everybody and everything including ourselves. This is why we urgently need a special, purposeful and highly practical educational method.

This method can not only help us understand our total interdependence in humanity and between humanity and Nature, but it can also help us actually, “viscerally” feel this interdependence and the need to adapt ourselves to Nature’s laws and system.

“Globalization” is here to stay since this is the form and nature of the system we exist in. Our only way forward and the key to our continuing human survival is the adaptation to the global system by changing how we interconnect and cooperate with each other — based on nature’s finely balanced and mutually integrated blueprint.
