The traditional view on globalization is that of a flat world, a pre-Pythagoran totalitarian world-view of a single rule-book for the world, usually gleaned or copied from the models we deployed in the U.S., a country with the biggest neanderthal stick of power, power often misinterpreted as the merit of excellence.
Apart from the fact that our democracy fails to yield renewability (for reasons I have identified) and thus is not sustainable, any totalitarian approach for the world is, by definition, a failed one. This dictatorial approach has been tried many a time, and history has proven it justifiably wrong at every turn. Our differences as human beings are more important than our commonalities, a propensity that can only be secured by real multi-dimensional freedom, not by a single totalitarian implementation we suggest the world to follow.
Globalization cannot be a one-size-fits-all mold of compliance, and must instead be implemented as a dynamic relativity theory (to each his own) of freedom—an implementation of freedom that supports and accentuates the value of our differences. So humanity can evolve not into robots of ever-increasing mediocrity shaped by oligarchically formed compliance but continues to reinvent itself in many directions towards the fringe of what is possible.
I was impressed by a 15 years old asking this question. Keep questioning “the rules” set before you.
