Globalism

Postby Puldania » Tue Jun 12, 2018 10:00 am

Throughout my time on NSG, I have found a surprisingly large amount of people who seem to hold negative to extremely negative views on Globalism. This is something that surprised me at first, since I had thought that globalism was mostly accepted. Since this, I have taken notice of more people in real life expressing anti-globalist views.

I don't have a long essay or anything like that, but I'd like to know what y'all views on globalism are. By globalism, I'm not referring to how it has been implemented/used, but the concept itself.

I myself see globalism as a natural progression on Humanity's path toward the future. The question I ask though, is whether it will be a good kind of globalism.

Anyways, I'm interested to see what the unique minds of NS think about this ever-so-common facet of modern day politics.

The thing is, that Globalism works. But, that's when every nation is on Globalism, because it is, again, Globalism. When some nations are protectionist, the other nations think the protectionist nations are going to eclipse them, so they become protectionist. If the entire world is globalist, then all nations can share in those advantages, without being pressed to not be eclipsed by protectionist nations.

Interdependence is the key to me
If everyone in the world needs everyone else to live then we’ll be less likely to kill each other and more likely to work together
It’s not perfect, more like economic MAD, but maybe one day we’ll stop wars and focus on helping one another

That's exactly the standpoint that I share.

Most other species work together, why can't humans?

It can also be said that American Globalism has resulted in a sort of "Cultural Imperialism". Everyone needs to be American, versus Everyone needs to be Human.

Meh. I guess with globalism there needs to be a lingua franca. Just wish it could be a conlang equally easy for everyone to learn.

Globalism is not problematic insofar as the strengthening of the interdependence between international communities, but rather that it is situated within a history of domination and the entrenchment of power interests. Critiques of globalism are seldom simply critiques as internationalism as much as the are globalised capitalism wrought from the legacies of imperial conquest, colonialism, slavery, and neocolonialism. Without any of these forces, globalism would be unrecognizable from its current iteration.

From what we have seen from globalised capitalism, it has not brought prosperity, freedom, or sustainability around the world, but a siphoning of resources away from the global masses (particularly within the global South) into the hands of a small body of elites.

Most people assume that everyone who argues FOR globalism is a supporter of this type of globalism.

Yea. I mean, we could do Chinese, or English. I'd agree with that "Cultural Imperialism" point. But we shouldn't curb globalism just because of it. We can teach people to love their cultures but still consume American culture.

Well, in this case, I don't particularly feel very strong about American culture, but I suppose it could be worse.

Globalism is an absolute evil. In fact, it is one of the few things in existence that I would say actually have an actual moral value outside of human experience. And that value is evil. The reason for this is simple. Globalism by definition means oppression.

Every community, large or small, religious, ethnic, national, or what ever else has an idea about how the world should be run. And in order for us to lead happy and productive lives the societies we live in have to be tailored to those desires. And nation states exist in order to permit us to do just that. That is why we have borders and laws and democracies and all that.

A single global government therefore by definition means oppression as it removes that fundamental right and capability from us. Under a global world we would no longer be able to live the lives we want to live and instead be force to accept rules imposed upon us by tyranny of the majority.

And that is bad.
Purpelia does not reflect my actual world views. In fact, the vast majority of Purpelian cannon is meant to shock and thus deliberately insane. I just like playing with the idea of a country of madmen utterly convinced that everyone else are the barbarians. So play along or not but don't ever think it's for real.



The above post contains hyperbole, metaphoric language, embellishment and exaggeration. It may also include badly translated figures of speech and misused idioms. Analyze accordingly.

I don't think they mean rape in the traditional sense so much as the rape of a countries resources for outside use in hugely one-sided deals.

In the 1930s when Japan and Germany rejected globalism, and sought autarky, that brought a lot of crime and rape.

I'm against globalism and nationalism.

In all seriousness though, globalism would be a bad thing because it means erasing the different culture of humanity. It's not really globalism, but rather Westernization of the world.

Not exactly sure that's comparable really. We haven't had a good population reducing war with the added bonus of industrialized slave away until you die camps in some time.

Globalism is a horrible encroachment on national sovereignty, and although I do not claim to be on the economic left in any way whatsoever, it has severe depressive effects on wages in most states, particularly on the lower rungs. Very few nations benefit from globalism, and in those that do, very few have a personal gain.

Nothing about globalization implicitly wipes out culture. What it does wipe out is tribalism, which is a bad thing.

People need to work together, anyways. Having a myriad of different cultures oppose each other isn't functional in the long term.

I mean, the one country in the world that aggressively pushed its own brand of Globalism, they ended up the most powerful country on earth, until returning to more protectionist policies. Of course, their brand focused on exploiting the rest of the world for its own gain.
