Essay about globalization
Essay about globalization and world changes
First of all I should mention that the title of this essay does not hit the point of typical essay. As I started to write I found myself in a dilemma between the characteristic attributes of an essay and the overwhelming amount of the material I could work with. Anyway, “back to topic”, as someone could have posted on an internet forum at that point in my work.
First I will start to analyse the forces involved in the process which influences its (globalization process) change. There are three general forces that I could think of. The first two of them have existed before globalization developed. They influence this process with the same constant amount of power.
At first there are general forces which are now representing the expansion of globalization. The most important ones are the curiosity of human beings combined with our requirement to possess and discover more and more. The economy which is working with restricted resources aims to overcome this narrow pass. Virtual goods for our leisure time like games and cyber sex can already be consumed in an endless and global way. I could not deny that they may overlap many times with non-virtual goods.
The second kind of general forces are forces which slow down the globalization process. Even if we can hardly realise their (or its: “its kind” , “their forces”) effects today. There are still a lot of problems waiting for a solution. There can be named: Different cultures, pollution and countries (yes, this is part of these forces!). I’m thinking of the song “Imagine” written by John Lennon. It is exactly this liberal and anti-authoritarian movement that is characteristic of globalization. However cause and effect must not be mixed up. This movement arose
with the rise of globalization and not the other way round.
The third general force came with the mental development of human beings,science and technical progress. I’d say this force is a general advancement of science. This force developed progressively in the course of history and accelerated the speed of globalization enormously. There were many developments in the fields of communication and transportation which allows us to conquer the world on a large scale and turn it into a global village. The first and the third force are striving for discovery of new concepts, ideas, technologies etc.. At this point I have to mention that in many scientific fields this curiosity is determined by the commercial pressure on science which is based on human greed. Nevertheless this curiosity is a decisive factor.
These three forces come together and determine the course of globalization. The advancements of science will forfeit their importance for globalization when it (the globalization) has reached a high stage and the first two forces level off at a balance between unlimited freedom and individualism.
