Globalization Is About Bring Us Together

Our problems are a result of our national forms of organization no longer being able to meet our current global needs. How we organize ourselves determines how we see ourselves. This then determines our relationships with one another. We now live in a world of differences based on nationality. Therefore, we identify ourselves in national terms, which tells us that we are different from each other.

To meet our common global needs in the future we need to live in a world where we see our similarities.  By living in a global world based on our similarities, we will then come to see that our differences are actually the variety that humanity has been able to produce. At the level of globalization our differences would first become our varieties and then our similarities. By seeing ourselves on a global level, we will come to see that we are interconnected and the sum total of all of our national and ethnic identities and cultural experiences.

    I agree with what you’re saying; as a country we need to unite and put differences aside, such as differences in nationality. If we don’t work together as a nation to meet our global needs, things will just stay the same. But we also have to work together with other countries. By seeing similarities, rather than differences would help a great deal because we can work to help issues such as global warming. By seeing the similarities, there would be less hatred in the world. Yes, there are differences, but that is what makes every human being an individual. I feel that if we all tried to see the similarities, then we would be able to accomplish more as a nation and amongst other countries.

    In a philosophical outlook I agree that the only way we could possibly get a grip on globalization is to come together and in order to do that, yes we would need to all be involved in a similar way of living. This all sounds great but in actuality how could u bring so many people together with different views on culture,religion,politics, and other background influences, put them all together in one society and just expect them to conform to be one way. I think that these differences each individual has from there nation is what makes us uniquely different and gets us as human beings to be worldly and want to know more about other countries and there differences, there way of life, foods, and cultural influences that contribute to the worlds evolvement. Those are the kind of things that people search for in time of travel and exploring. What good is an economy if you can not learn from one another and there differences. At the end of the day people want to do what is comfortable for them and unfortunately those comforts are what is impairing our nation globally..in more than one way!
    What is your outlook on the future of this globalization professor?
    Do you think there is a realistic chance of all nations coming together as one? (Without kicking and screaming)

    We can all do a better job as to putting our nationalities aside, but that will take global effort. In this day and age, people are less willing to overlook their differences. Every country, or every individual, goes through the same hardships. If we worked towards facing those hardships together, we would surely have less confusion. The thought of humanity envisioning this kind of contribution, is rather complex. Every nation has their own set of rules. More importantly, they all have different political backgrounds. But by combining our problems, we can work on diminishing major global issues together, rather than failing to do so individualy. This will help us achieve much more than just progress for one country. It will guide us towards global advancement.

    On one hand I have agreed with what you have said because it is true, we do live in a world based on differences for example either nationality, race, gender and other aspects but that isn’t how it should be. Like you have stated, “We need to live in a world where we see our similarities.” Everyone has always focused on the differences when that shouldn’t always be the case. Yet before trying to change the global status, I believe we need to try to change our community and then go on. It is not possible to go from the earth to the moon without trying to fly first. It would be nice to live in a world where we weren’t judged based on our differences but that is where reality sets in and where I disagree. Our differences are what make us who we are. Yes globalization is about bringing the people together, but as I believe it was stated in a previous comment everyone has different views on all aspects and to change that would take a great amount of time which depending on the case we might not have.

    I completely agree with this. There are so many problems in the world today, and one of the main reasons are of racism. Not only in this country, but the entire world needs to come together as one, and put the differences of nationalities aside. Everyone of every race go through the same trouble. I feel like we should look past all the differences of everyone, so we can all work together and build a better tomorrow for the future generation so they wouldn’t be bothered by such foolish problems people start because they are too close-minded to see past themselves and what they think and feel. And the most major issue that has come recently is aversive racism, in which one believes everyone should be treated equal, promotes equality, but subconsciously believes otherwise.

    I disagree with Globalization Is About Bring Us Together
    Posted by Angelo_Alle beacuse i do not think it is possible to bring all the people to agree, or to find what our similarities or differences are. From my point of view it is just impossible to unite all the different cultures “we are too many”. We will always “identify ourselves in national terms”. Lets talk about America where there is a tremendous cultural diversity. Mexicans, Asians, Persian and the other cultures that are part of this American society, will be always recognized for their customs, beliefs physical appearance. We people want to let others know where we come from, our background. It is not so simple to agree with other when most of us come from other places where we were taught differently.

    With the usage of technology, specially the computerization of the world the biggest difference between peoples in the way they conduct business is the shape of their keyboards. A Korean businessman meets an Indian businessman in Thailand and finalizes a business deal in English.

    I really enjoy this analysis because of how truthful I see it to be. When individuals view others based on their differences rather than similarities, this inevitably leads to discrimination. To reverse the harsh effects of discrimination, we must see one another as being more alike than being different. Then, as you said, our differences become more like varieties which creates a world full of diversity and culture rather than one filled with hatred and inequality.

  9. Cassandra Oliphant says:

    We have reached the point where we are ruled by technology. The simple touch of a button gets things done; be it sending a message or an urgent warning. We travel by technology, we are mesmerized by all of it, since things are so convenient. It’s how we evolved, we’ve become unearthed since we rely so much on technology. It’s as if the natural world no longer exists.

  10. Clairissa Barker says:

    I feel that many people think the same exact way that you do. People want to see what they have in common with one another on a larger scheme and come to realize that people around the world globally have similarities rather then differences. You would think though, with all the updated technology that globalization would be far more easy.
