What is wrong with globalization and technical progress?

Question from the Internet:

“What happened to our world because of globalization and advanced technologies?”

Our world is sinking into an ever-deepening and seemingly unsolvable crisis, because we do not understand, we do not want to know how we are supposed to exist in the globally integrated and interdependent world Nature is forcing on us.

“Globalization” — living in a global, integral world — is not something man-made. We are forced towards global integration and interdependence by Nature’s strict, unforgiving laws since humanity — an integral part, a single, integrated species of Nature — has to become compatible with nature’s system.

Without a Nature-like mutual integration within human society, we have no right to exist in the infinitely stronger, larger Natural system, which will simply ‘spit us out” if we do not comply.

At this stage, we still, blindly, stubbornly try to exploit our inevitable mutual interconnections for selfish, egotistic benefit and profit. This is most obvious in relation to our technological advancement, since everything, all the tools we have we use to manipulate, exploit and destroy each other. everything is turned either to excessive, individual profit or to weapons against others, or both.

As long as we blindly follow our instinctive nature we act like cancer towards each other and Nature.

The Natural system, its laws and its relentless evolutionary process towards the most optimal integration of its diverse system will not change. Only we can change and consciously adapt to the system’s seamless, unconditional mutual integration and mutually responsible and mutually complementing cooperation.

It is specifically this conscious adaptation to Nature above and against our instinctive tendencies that will make us “Truly Human” beings.
