Globalism is nothing more than a ploy to mix all of the races and make everyone poor to more easily control them.



It's the Oldest Trick in the Book , Divide and Conquer . Only the Extremely Gullible , like those presently Protesting in the Streets , would Fall for such an Obvious Maneuver .

My thinking is...baby steps. Globalism is a fine ideal, but with the world as it is, it cannot really function without great loss of our current ideals, virtues and standards of living. Forcing globalism will only lead to some horrific totalitarian regime with huge swaths of the population in open defiance and as much as TPTB would like to be kings of the world, it will take more than political machinations and propaganda to bring it about.

It must occur organically.

I believe that there is a part of humanity that does desire a global community however; Facebook and Twitter (described by Michio Kaku as a Type 1 civilization communication network) prove this to an extent. I think that through the advances of this kind of technology, the ability to experience the lives of every connected person on the planet, we will start to see a true global society emerge. As humanity becomes more and more technologically integrated (or succeeded by our own technology, via self-improving artificial intelligence...it occurs to me that humanity may be the caterpillar that precedes the butterfly in this regard) we will see walls being broken down, the concept of nations fading into obscurity and a singular purpose to the actions of the human (or post-human) race.

I should add that I'm not in the least bit certain if the above is a good thing or a bad thing and frankly, hope to die before seeing the transitions begin to take place in earnest. But I do believe that what I've described is somewhat inevitable, short of a nuclear exchange or meteor strike.

Beneficial globalism can only occur to the extent that there is parity among its members. Otherwise, its just an income redistribution scheme that only benefits the 1% and the members with the lesser starting economic advantage at the expense of the others.

Humanity have nothing to offer anyone outside this solar system until it rises above the corruption of the power pyramid. How many thousands of years will humanity keep implementing this faulty society structure based on enslavement of others and creating suffering?


Maybe we could offer them humor? Or be the creepy clowns of the universe? Or we might make great pets. Many a day I envy my dogs life.


But if the aliens are advanced and can use entanglement to measure what happens here, they do not need to physically come here to see all the fun/insane things we do. It is like humans filming nature shows. To measure how humans behave in their natural habitat you want to minimize the influence you create while trying to measure them.

Dogs are different. Their behavioral are more direct so they have a hard time trying to create a fake behavioral layer where they can project something else than what they really experience inside.
