What Is Globalization

I will begin my global presentation by stating that each age is a reflection of its own time and globalization is no different.

For the first time in history our global problems have outstripped our national problems as a result of globalization.

The Economist magazine has called globalization “the most abused word of the 21st century.” No word in recent memory has meant so many things to different people. Some see it as a form of domination by transnational institutions that can only lead to a new kind of chaos. Others see it as a form of nirvana, a blessed state of universal peace and prosperity.

Since its first appearance in 1962 the term ‘globalization’ has gone from jargon to cliché. Globalization as defined by Webster’s dictionary, is “a process that renders various activities and aspirations worldwide in scope or application.”

The Need For A New System Of Political Organization

The global protests against the corporatization of the world shows that a new system of organizing ourselves is not only needed but is inevitable. This new system must empower the people and make servicing them as the reason for the institutions of society. We need a new system that we can superimpose upon our existing systems of government. To meet these problems I propose the establishment of a new kind of system that I call entrusted government, one that would build its institutions from the bottom-up by their own members.

Organizing The Concerns Of Wall Street Protestors

The occupy Wall Street protestors have brought to the attention of the nation and the world the many different reasons the people have for wanting a better system that can provide for the needs of all.  As the protest movement continues, the reason that caused people to join the protest was the concerns that they had for their own future and the future of their country and the world.

To organize the concerns of the protestors they must be arranged into groups dedicated to meeting their common concerns. Each group of common concerns would then appoint or, if necessary, hire the representatives capable of lobbying on their behalf those public and private institutions that they wish to influence.

The groups of similar common concerns contained in every location of the nation and the world would then link together and form local, regional, national and international groups capable of applying political pressure at every level of human society. Then each common concern would be organized from the local level to the national level and even the international level, which would allow every concern to be able to coordinate its actions at all levels of political society.
