The implications effects of globalization

Question from the Internet:

“What are the manifestations and effects of globalization in today’s society?”

“Globalization” means existing in a globally integrated and fully interdependent world.

This has nothing to do with human activity, economics, trade, or media influence. We evolved into this global, integral world as a result of Nature’s evolution forcing us to become compatible with its integrated and interdependent system since as a single species we are an integral part of Nature.

The manifestation and effect of “globalization” are that since we are all interdependent we are also mutually, absolutely responsible for each other, for the whole collective, for Nature’s system as single cells of the same living organism.

As we could and can still see through our responses, “solutions” to the pandemic and climate change, for example, we are abysmally failing in this, as we continue behaving, acting instinctively, driven by our inherently self-serving, self-justifying, subjective, and exploitative egos.

Each only thinks about oneself, trying to succeed, survive at the expense of others. We all sit on the same global boat that is sinking as each is trying to drill holes under the others, forgetting, ignoring that this way the whole boat sinks and we all drown.

There is no escape from the implications of “globalization” as we are up against Nature’s strict, unchanging, unforgiving laws. Thus we either learn what we are obliged to do, how we are expected to behave in our evolutionary conditions, or we will sink ever deeper into crisis until unimaginable, intolerable suffering will force us to think and change.
