There is no valid argument against globalization

Question from the Internet:

“What is an argument against globalization?”

There is no valid argument against “globalization”, since “globalization” — existence in a globally integrated and interdependent world — is not something man-made, something we could reverse or ignore.

This globally integrated and interdependent state we find ourselves in is an evolutionary necessity. Nature’s system is relentlessly progressing towards a final, most optimal state of integration, and humanity as one of nature’s species cannot defy this systemic development.

Thus we have no other choice but to learn how to adapt ourselves and build unprecedented, positive and sustainable, mutually responsible and mutually complementing global interconnections, cooperation with each other to become compatible with nature.

Since we have to achieve this above and against our inherently selfish, subjective, and individualistic nature — which drives us towards excessive overconsumption and ruthless competition — we need a special, purposeful, and practical educational method to rise above our present, instinctive state and rise to a higher level of collective, altruistic human development.
