The digital interference and the global response
The global alarming signals is ringing that we are connecting thoughtfully but not intimately on an egoless basis. This is as result of diverse interests, motives and mental levels inhabiting the globe. Like waves of different frequencies, which naturally generate a destructive interference when propagated on same course, while those of same frequency, will give rise to constructive interference. Same can be seen today, as people’s lives are being shaped “for better and for worst” as they agree or disagree on ideas relevant or irrelevant within the waves of global exchange. The thoughts and ideas that are converging and diverging across the globe every second are driving and shaping people’s decision scales; enriching many in values and things while luring many to lose their ground and cave-in into emotional or financial graves. This connectivity, is creating ripples of doubt, fear, gains, loses, interest and hope to diverse human spirit, making the issue of the sources of these connecting ideas, very relevant before subscribing to any of them.
The awful waves of digital economy
Prince Edike C.
The reality of our connectivity to ideas and people is seen in the level of contraction and interference the globe is experiencing today. In an era where knowledge has become the center of gravity for human progress, the search for the truest form of idea if left only on the domain of political discourse, the pursuit for its knowledge will be reduce to quest for power.
The evidence of information and digital interference to our world is overwhelming, considering the effects of globalization and its digital tentacles; all trying to solve problems that man has created. A lot has changed all along, and these changes are challenging our market system, education, environment, technologies, work-places, cultures, religions, families and marriages and we don’t need more lenses or measuring/detecting devices to notice the trend or change that we are all subjected to these days.
Are the Third world nations competing or fitting well into the global economy?
One of the effects of this interference is the urge to compete and remain the best in control or worst; “in order not to be left behind”. This effect has both pros and cons to humanity but it is presumably one of the reason why globalization will remain a tool for progress for man and at the same time a tool for disparity between the rich and the poor, and the diagnostic tool for measuring the gaps and proffering solution to the real challenges the weakest in our world have.
The leading economies and ideas will be tempted to judge and if possible impose their ideologies on the weakest among us, thereby making the latter, lose what they most cherish and adore.
This wave will come in form of reforms and policies geared to promote competitions in guise of economic and ideas development, best practices, ecological sustainability and new value systems creation. Globalization and its waves of change has to be fully articulated, understood and tailored to fit well into the basic lifestyle and aspiration of the weakest. This means, while encouraging them to follow the ripples, vital spaces and local needs have to be left to be defined by the people themselves.
Therefore, certain lifestyles, policies and development approaches that mimic Western methodologies, which might benefit the developing nations in a short-term anyway, but do them harm in the long run has to be re-examined and remodeled to suit the local needs. Otherwise, the poor will want to compete and live entirely by comparing their conditions to those of the West.
The people on the Southern hemisphere have big problems. Most of their problems are caused by themselves and the others by the West through needs misdiagnosis and policy impositions.
In my view, all people possess the capabilities to grow in time but a situation where nations are now leaving their basic needs to pursue those of the West, the result will be long years if not eternity of dependency on the left-over of the Western waste. This is the case of the third world nations. The developed nations through globalization have deem it necessary though with benefits, to help the poor nations but the latter are not getting things right. The tides generated by globalization if not fully grasp and embrace as waves to sail on while remaining focus and connected to the people onboard, or learn from its “lights” while filtering the “lies and lust particles” therein, will leave the poor keep wanting the source’s (West) intervention and not being able to cause major shift in human progress.
Secondly, life has to be seen on the realistic view; some nations will be more successful than others. Nations will rise and fall and many will be left as observers, yet the truth remain that; “success is not judge by the amount each of us own but the amount of general well-being we create and share with each other”. Embracing life on the basis of averaging rather than infallibility is the truest form of living that globalization is transforming the minds of its people to live on.
