Globalization does not benefit anyone but a few rich people and corporations, and whether or not there is an actual organization working for a New World Order, a new world order is being created at any rate, and we all stand to lose from it. It can only lead to worldwide poverty, famine and war.
When you read about globalization in an encyclopedia, it sounds ideal, it sounds perfect, it seems like the only way forward. But then, globalization has nothing to do with a McDonalds on every street corner from Moscow to Baghdad, does it?
Globalization is not about Hollywood diluting many cultures in order to impose the one of some chosen Americans worldwide. Globalization has nothing to do with something becoming global, where then you can reap the profits worldwide for a single idea or product. Globalization does not even have something to do with the corporate world eliminating frontiers and barriers and exploiting cheap labor in order to make huge profits.
In this day and age, globalization is synonymous with New World Order, and we all know what that means, unless you have been living under a rock for the last decade. New World Order means the end of any sort of freedom, right or liberty, it means, in the best conspiracy theory fashion, the end of the world as we know it. You lose your own culture, your own language, your own religion, your own beliefs, your own identity.
Most people still laugh at the idea, I almost do myself, especially after taking such topic as globalization so lightly. I read a few books, and I thought, could it be true, is it possible, or is it just conspiracy theories? But when the new Prime Minister of England, Gordon Brown, makes a first speech after taking power, with no less than 17 references to New World Order and Globalization, I have to wonder, who is he really working for? Consider this:
YouTube's "Gordon Brown New World Order Speech"
It is everywhere in the mass media, Google it. The New Statesman: "Brown's new world order"
At times like these, I feel so lost, desperate, that even new elections, new Prime Ministers, new Presidents, do not give me hope. They are all on the same war path, they are all about globalization and New World Order, and ultimately, not many of us really understand what this is all about and where it will lead us.
We can only see the state of the world today, multiple cases of genocide, a nuclear Third World War around the corner, the greatest stock market crash in history awaiting us at the bank; we are all now Americans and our world leader is the American President. It is the End of the World, as my grandfather would say, after blaming it all on the Communists.
Now, I don't even know what a communist is; the concept has been eradicated from my education, as I am from one of the new generations, the ignorant one without a purpose in this world. Not the Baby Boomers Generation, not even Generation X, not even the new youngest generation, Generation Kill. I am from a lost generation in between Generation X and Generation Kill, as I said, a lost meaningless generation without an identity. For a while we were called Generation Y (why), it came after X. As I said, an insignificant and utterly powerless generation. That's mine!
Generations have been globalized nowadays, it transcends countries and nationalities and time. We were all listening to the Moody Blues when I was born in 1972, if you can remember, whether we were in England, in America, in Québec or in Italy.
I don't know more than you, I have a full time job as a civil servant at the bottom of the corporate hierarchy, but it seems clear, a new world order is being drawn over the horizon and none of us will survive it if the trends continue as they are.
Something is going to happen, something huge, I can say that even without being alarmist, so obvious are the signs. And whenever America crashes, the rest of the world crashes with it. Another sure sign that globalization is complete.
It does not sound like any sort of paradise or utopia, but more constraints, less freedom, fewer rights and more misery, while they continue to reap humanity's global wealth.
It is an open invitation for one crazy tyrant to rule the world, because after globalization is complete, the way they want it to be complete, one man decides everything. The people will have no vote in deciding who gets that most coveted job. Money and power decide already, which means a few men decide, and then, our future is definitely going to be bleak as their personal interests will most likely clash with the people's interests.
