What are the implications of a planet that has gone global in economics, communications, and socially in many ways? How has globalization changed the face of civilization? What are its threats and opportunities?
Dr. Alexander Chumakov and Glen Martin author of The Earth Constitution Solution, talk about the phenomenon of globalization, an area in which Dr. Chumakov is an expert.
They discuss how insulated cultures and nations have suddenly become neighbors with the globalization of transport and communications, and the world has become very small. People have not adapted to this new reality and continue to cling to fragmented ideas of who they are in their disparate communities.
This is a major problem causing such phenomena as astronomical war expenditures that take away from out ability to deal with other global problems like climate crisis. A Constitution for the Federation of Earth would be a great gift to humanity toward solving all these problems.
