A New Global Manner Beyond Our National Identities

A mobile buffer system would result in forming new global cultures that would allow us as human beings to rediscover ourselves in a new global manner beyond our national identities. Political entrustment wouldn’t replace our national identities instead it would bring us all together on a global level, which would result in also giving us a global understanding of ourselves. This would allow us to develop ourselves in new global ways that would make us a part of one another’s endeavors. Political entrustment will give us the tools needed to expand our global imagination that we will need to face the many global challenges that await us in the future.

A Mobile Hired Buffer System of Government

A buffer system of government would be a political market system consisting of hired forms of government. As a hired system of government those that wanted it would purchase it. Individuals would hire companies to provide them with personalized forms of government.

Because a buffer system of government would be a personalized system, it would also be highly mobile. As a mobile form of government, it would develop when and where it was wanted. Mobile forms of government would naturally come in contact with each other and in the process create new global cultures that would transcend their national limitations.

Global Corporate Domination (part 5)

Today it is the global market that rules the actions of nation states, which are now all at the whim of global forces beyond their control. The globalization process has made us the handmaidens of the corporations that we are forced to do business with and that we have no direct control over because we both consume as well as work for them. This has also permitted corporations to give and take jobs at will, which has allowed them to direct the course that the people and their societies will have to take.

Global Corporate Domination (part 3)

Globalization has also created systemic changes within society as well as ourselves that will forever change the way that we will see our relationship with the corporations that eliminate our jobs and destroy our lives according to their profit needs instead of ours. The shifting of jobs from the high wage north to the low wage south to the many layoffs that have resulted because of the movement of corporations to less developed markets has brought into question the legitimacy of our current government’s ability to effectively protect their peoples’ interests and welfare from corporate domination and even abuse.

Global Corporate Domination (part 1)

The first phase of this globalization process has placed us at the mercy of corporations where we must accept the economic and political decisions they make in their own interests, yet also determine our own personal and social health and welfare as well as that of our natural environment. This globalization process has also given us a corporate world that has placed us at the mercy of corporations that we have no direct political control over.

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.”

From National Differences To Human Variety

We are more similar than different. The various stages of human existence such as births, confirmations, marriage, and deaths are the same for all people and always have been. Our differences are how we celebrate and commemorate these events. These differences are personified by the languages we use, the foods that we eat, the music that we play and the songs that we sing as well as the dances that we do.

When looking at these perceived differences in terms of our common humanity instead of our alleged national differences, the fact becomes clear that these differences are really only cultural in nature and not actual. When we come to see ourselves in terms of our common humanity, our national differences will be seen as our human variety, which will lead to our global understanding of one another and the beginning of our global coming together.

Globalization Is Bringing Us Altogether

What I would like to present in my next group of blogs is the idea of globalism. The twentieth century has been the century that has brought the world closer together. Radio, moves, television and now the Internet have given the world an increasing common identity that has provided us with personal experiences that we can all identify with.  This global personal identity has been increased by the common global problems that we are all experiencing.

From the beginning of human history each age has been a reflection of the problems that formed it. Today is no exception. The problems that we are encountering today are global in nature and, therefore, require global solutions to resolve them. Achieving a global solution will herald in a new global world in which we will come to see that we are all members of a common human family with a common destiny that will lead us all. My up coming blogs will deal with this new globalization process and how we have come to this point as well as where it will take us.

Global Awareness

This year is the year of change. The global 99% movement and the Wall Street occupation movement as well as the other occupation movements have given us a global awareness that has ignited a call for global freedom and change that cannot be stopped.  We are coming to see that our common human problems are showing us that we are all members of the same human race with the same human conditions. This has provided us with a global awareness in which we see our growing similarities eclipse our perceived national and ethnic differences.

Our Global Problems Bring People Together

How we see ourselves determines how we act.  When we see ourselves strictly in terms of our nationality, we become blinded by it.  Global problems require a global way of thinking, which is not possible through strictly a national understanding of ourselves. Our global problems are uniting the people of the world through the common global experiences that they have created. Our common global experiences have given us a common global understanding that we now all share on a global level. This global understanding transcends our national understandings and the longer this occurs the more global we will become and the less national in character.

The global crisis and disasters that we are experiencing have given us global problems that have provided us with a global understanding of ourselves. These global problems are forcing the world to come together in a global manner in order to deal with them. The global problems of the world have created global needs that can only be resolved through global means. The global problems of tomorrow’s world will require us to organize ourselves in global ways. This will necessitate independent global institutions be formed to effectively apply them fairly if we are going to meet the global needs ahead of us.
