Is globalism, a good, idea?

You'll have to define exactly what you mean by globalism Dana. The only globalism I know about is the crazy, unhinged crap Alex Jones rants about. Tell me, in your own words, what you think globalism is.

You can't stop the world making advances in communications and travel technology, and so you can't stop the world from feeling smaller and more connected.

Side: Yes.

Globalism, is a one world, government.

OK, fair enough. That too is inevitable. Perhaps not until the distant future, but if/when we become a spacefaring species and begin to colonise other worlds it will be completely impractical and stupid for Earth to be bogged down in political squabbling and internal power games involving dozens of different leaders. You can't stop something which is inevitably part of our own evolution and you can't necessarily determine it is bad before it has even happened. A one world government can only be as good or as bad as its own members, so in that respect it will be just like every other government which has ever existed.

I think your question suggests a paranoia about something you don't truly understand and are being persuaded to believe certain things about.

Is globalism, a good, idea?

Hello y:

I dunno if it's a good idea or not. It's just what we're gonna do.

As a species, we started off wandering around. Then we joined into little groups.. I dunno if anybody thought it was a good idea or not, but as civilization progressed, that's what we did. We organized into tribes, then villages, then states, then countries, and finally superpowers. Nobody gave that any thought...

The next step is obvious. And, it too doesn't matter what anybody thinks.. It's just what we're gonna do. My friend Al said, borders cause most of the worlds strife. He's right, of course. So, should we kill half of humanity to defend them, or get rid of them altogether??

Certainly, no one country is gonna give up their borders first.. But, imagine, if the whole world did it at once....

Globalism has now moved to daily reality - with the help of advanced communication tools.
