How Far Can Globalisation Go?

Updated on April 10, 2018

The world is fast reducing in size in the aspect of the human relationship, and it seems we can do not about it but accept things as it changes. Some centuries ago it was not easy for one to travel from one part of the world to the other. It was also not easy for one to relate or communicate with others in distance parts of the world because of communication barriers. Now the world is fast reducing and bridging those gaps and it, now, seems we are coming closer, and closer to one another.

Thanks to the tools of globalisation like the internet, aeroplane, and mobile phones among others which have helped to bring the world closer. However, it seems that while some people are in support of this reduction in the world size by the efforts of globalisation. Others are against the idea and tries of globalisation. The former group may do so because they claim that their cultural values are at the stalk and that it may be lost or will have to confront another culture. Some people argue that it leads to a form of neocolonialism in that the developed nations still direct the affairs of the developing countries via tools like UN, IMF among others.

The latter group, in support of globalisation, may do so because it is an effort to unite the human society and help create a more peaceful world with one ambition in the spirit of brotherhood of man. Well, the primary interest in this work is the internet and how it has helped us to relate to others. We have made friends both known and unknown friends. It is a fact that we can now communicate with people online while we do not know those or whatever is on the other side of the wire.

It is an exciting relationship because we can chat; discuss, share ideas, read articles, and learn online. Above all, we can make friends online only to know such friends later or never get to know them. It then means that we may not become acquainted with those on the other end of the wire before we start, but it is possible for us to know them along the line as we continue in the online relationship.

Many people have made friends that started from online friendship. The big question is how far this online relationship can go? It is because globalisation has reduced virtually everything to electronic means ranging from banking, church meeting, conferences, and friendship, which is the closest we can get in our association with others.

Some people are now asking if we can, someday, have e-marriages and e-families. It will be fun, but the big question is how such online feat can be achieved for both partners to benefit and enjoy their marriage and family to its fullest. Although some people wish to have a family without children, yet other things make a relationship more interesting like an outing with your partner, a walk along a garden of sweet smelling flowers, having dinners or breakfast together among others.

Well, who knows maybe some people can still enjoy their relationship without observing these things, or there can be a way that globalisation can break the barrier. That is why some people wonder how far globalisation can go with the rate and speed the size of the world is reducing and virtually everything is going electronic as a man looks for ways to improve his life and live better and more comfortable.

Globalization has brought men so close that we now wonder how close we can get in our relationship with our fellow man.

      Thanks HSchneider, we can use tools of globalization for good or evil but it is left for us to use it positively. I trust the world is getting better as we try to come together and close gaps in relationships especially relationship between nations that is why leaders are trying to restore peace in places like Middle East. In the past such conflict may not have received global attention because of gaps. Thanks

      Excellent insights David. Globalization is amazing and I believe it is bringing people together and doing great things. Just look at the Middle East revolutions. Everyone can connect instantly and although evil can be perpetuated, in the end, I believe more good will come of this.

      Yes that you at least read and make contributions online, no matter your distance, is a credit to globalization. It affects us in various ways as the world continues to shrink and bring man together as a one big family. That is the world is fast becoming "a global village"
