The things that are wrong with our society and globalization

Arrow Image How developed countries and big buck corporations look at society and globalization of developing countries. Why do they do this?



People said that i should put this up as an article so I decided to. This is my view on how the US and other devloped countries look upon our society and how they treat developing countries.

The extent that globalization contributes to economic sustainability for all peoples of the world can be debated from two perspectives. The first is that it helps promote economic sustainability and the other is that it is a negative force on sustainability for all people. Most people think that it is a positive effect, but this is a misconception. It is not good for most people of the world, in fact it is only good for those countries that have lots of money. The majority of countries with moderate or low annual incomes do not profit from globalization. The idea of globalization has done nothing for developing countries except that it has helped them fall deeper into the hole while they are exploited by transnational corporations and powerful or corrupt governments, globalization needs to be reconsidered.

Dick Cheney said that “..few people have been harmed...”, but this is an outragous lie. All he wants to do is make sure that the US remains an economic super power. He does not care about the poorer countries, nor the affect that the corporations that reside in his country have on the countries that they are exploiting. He is saying this all because he is patriotic which in this case is not a good thing when it involves the survival of the human species not just the Americans. Proof of this is that most transnational corporations reside in North America and the United States. These companies then have outlets through and around poorer countries. They bring money into the US, but they pay hardly enough to survive on, in fact some get paid less then a dollar a day.

Many people believe that free trade is a despicable thing to do to these countries that have been completely uprooted due to globalization. There are huge rallies and protests against sweat shops which are owned and operated by these big budget commercial companies. The protesters know what goes on in these sweat shops. They know all about the horrible working conditions that the workers suffer day in and day out. They know about the less then minimum wage due to the “Free Trade” which should be outlawed. They know that everyday people are beaten to death or not paid because they “Didn\'t meet their quota”. How can they be allowed to do this? Well that is simple, they bring the US and high economic, developed countries profits. Is it really worth it. Should we be ruthlessly working these people to death? So that we, the developed countries can have an extra movie every month, or maybe get those new tires? Definitely not.

People like George W. Bush, and Dick Cheney care about only one thing: profits. The United States is one of the richest countries in the world. Yet, it is in last place for donating a percentage of its annual GNI to help developing countries. Shouldn\'t it be way up at the top? Shouldn\'t it easily be able to donate point seven percent to help countries that do not even have a GNI of one tenth of the United States\'? If people like Dick Cheney say things like “...very few people have been harmed by it[globalization]...”, and people are believing them only for the sole reason that they are disillusioned by the media then what will happen to our planet and our economy in the future. If definitely cannot get better, no it will definitely become worse when there are millions dying every year because they cannot afford to buy food or sell their wares or home grown produce.

It is clear to see that our economy should not be based on a system that has been used for far too long. What ever happened to innovating the current to make them better? We need to force the governments to stop exploiting and start helping to make our entire planet better. No longer should we use current forms of “Colonization” that was used hundreds of years ago which still to this day has had negative effects, which still to this day has made these developing countries who were used for colonization way behind. Should we wish to help restore our past problems we must first stop using this method that has done nothing but slow down progress.

To conclude, the extent that globalization help to promotes sustainable prosperity for all peoples of the world is not much. The only people that it has ever helped, and will ever help are those who live in the countries that are globalizing this world. Not the countries that are be used for globalization. History has shown us one thing. When we move into other peoples land, and tell them how to live, what to do, where to do it, they do not react well, and sometimes huge conflicts get started over it. Globalization is just a fancy word to describe a form of human parasitism. We need to find a new way of surviving based on a mutualism. Lets stop this form of globalization.

Feel free to comment and please mention any grammar errors or typos that I missed while editing this. Please rate fairly.

You claim that the USA is rich. Look at the USA, plenty of poor people, plenty of shortages, plenty of crime/whatever. Ever thought about that?

The US have a higher BNP than many other countries. There are no countries where all people are rich and obey the law.

LOck-doWN: There's no such thing as right and wrong. Also, you're stating all of this stuff as though it's fact, but it's not, it's your opinion. I think you're being pessimistic and focusing on the negative aspects instead of the positive ones. Remember, "There is no such thing as a problem without a gift for you in its hands. You seek problems because you need their gifts." -- Bach

omg so much ignorance. how exactly would you explain to a sweat shop worker that he is out of a job because 'america doesn'y want to mistreat you no more so were closing down the sweatshops and btw, a couple million more workers are losing their job too [because of sweat shop closure] so good luck finding a new job" it'll be..pretty hard to see how he benefits from this. did you know that they get paid much more than people working on other jobs like farming? sure its a dollar per day but it allows them to feed their families and live better than those that have non-sweatshop jobs. if they thought its such a bas job they wouldnt work there...if its the only job available then even more reason not to close it down. how do you think china has nopw a middle class? its globalization that made china rich. please address.

LOck-doWNon December 13 2007 - 23:02:21
folk: many of the sweatshop workers are trafficked into them....also lots are children. is this right?

Damning a beneficial concept due to perceived lack of regulation just makes it look as if you're ready to approach a serious topic from a narrow viewpoint, rather than addressing it from the view of all people. Natural science classes typically address the best practices of nurturing developing countries; you should familiarize yourself with that first, then criticize any weak points of globalization. Passion does not eliminate the need for research.

I'm going to ignore the point this article tries to make, and pass along a great lesson spyware shared with me a while back: Complaining does nothing. If you want people to listen to you, take action. Otherwise, you're just a puppet. You can blather all you want in text about saving the world, but we all know you're not going to make an effort to do it. Or are you? Prove us all wrong.

zephyr_Pure: that's exactly it! very well phrased.

Its nice but America is over 3 trillion dollars in debt.
koolkeith12345on December 14 2007 - 10:26:45
using big words dosnt make a article good. Most of your article was obvious and biased. George W. Bush, and Dick Cheney care about only one thing: profits Your a fucking genius mate!!!!!:happy:

Note: This article isn't worth it's ID.

spyware: How do you even notice things like that? :right:

hey i wrote this for my social class(which i hate). ^^ i put it on here because i wanted to see what people would say. sorry if people thought i meant it as a serious suggestion. it was for a school test that i thought it would be smart to write it instead of notes for it. ^^
spywareon December 15 2007 - 02:38:14
So this isn't your real opinion? Then, what the hell is it?
LOck-doWNon December 15 2007 - 23:10:43

fuseron December 17 2007 - 07:47:18
my country itself is considering an FTA with the US govt. The only people liking the idea are some politicians with connections. Everyone else hates the idea and points out at the failures. The talks are going to be held in the future, i hope that it'll fail.

I thought this was a hacking site not world news report. Let's get some of these shitty ones out of the database. (looks for delete shitty article button)...Damnit!!
daniel11uson January 16 2008 - 04:22:52
i acually thought that your article was well educated critisism: 1)Uberon im pretty sure you meant GDP (gross domestic product) 2)lock-down, some facts are skewed and im not sure you know what globalization is (sorry if that sounds condescending) 3)for those who say its not our responsibitlity to help poor/developing countries SHAME!!!! we have so much crap its incredible. the average annual income is 600$ in india and yall dont think its our DUTY to help these people (our AAI is about 27000 $) sorry if i offended anyone Smile
DrBeaveron January 26 2008 - 01:36:07
The US needs to better learn with the people in our country before we can even hope to handle people in other countries. We are trying to help poor countries, which is a GOOD thing, but the fact of the matter is that we are sinking into debt faster than any other country. How can we sustain a growing economy in another country when ours is crumbling. Pointing the finger at Bush and Cheney isn't the way to solve anything. Yeah, they might have messed the economy up a little(or a lot) but look at other people. Bill Clinton opened us up to China, and look where that has gotten us, lead poisoning our future. Maybe that was the point, maybe Clinton wanted us all to die so China could take over the world, but then again, I will save that for a conspiracy rant I might post later. This comment is getting really long, so I am going to cut it here... Until my rant appears on the article board -Beaver

Before you get all self-righteous about the US being so wealthy and giving nothing to developing countries, consider the fact that hand-outs are not the way to go if you want to stabilize the economy of a developing nation. All this "charity" does is put money into the hands of the corrupt leaders of these countries...i don't think the US should give developing countries money at all...
