“Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark. In our obscurity, in all this vastness, there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves.” -- Carl Sagan, Pale Blue Dot, 1994. Almost 22 years later, these the impactful words have motivated six million people.. and counting. The coming of the new millennium has pushed new and old generations to learn from the past and mend present day issues. At the seam of a new generation, it is our responsibility to set the standards for the new millennium.

Forces, during the early 20th century or possibly longer, have been metaphorically fighting tooth and nail just to bring the entire world under the reign of one single government. The belief or ideology that a single one world government should be in place is called globalism while the opposite ideology is referred to as isolationism or nationalism. In a speech given by former CEO of Caterpillar Inc., Jim Owens (2006), where he publicly showed his and the company’s appreciation for globalism “…we must believe that we can compete on the world stage. We must look at globalization and international competition as an opportunity to make ourselves stronger and more efficient—and not, as some are proposing, as a reason to turn inward and put up barriers
The great Empire of Rome, the greatest power to have ruled the Mediterranean. The Roman empire thrived in the time of Julius Caesar around 47 BC. Caesar had made Rome into an empire, but after he died, Rome started its downfall. It was unthinkable. The great Roman empire’s reign was over. There was no one single cause; it was many things happening at once, which caused the fall of Rome. The downfall happened with the army weakening, natural disasters and plagues rising, and leaders becoming corrupted all contributed to their fall.
As the Industrial Revolution spread throughout countries around the world, products were soon being quickly distributed throughout the world. What the world didn’t realize, however, was the production put into them. Many products were mass produced in the revolution, but the methods and work conditions were not safe or sanitary. In addition to this and because of the low pay of the workers, many who could get a job were still tight on money and could not live in luxury. While some may argue that the Industrial Revolution had a primarily positive effect on society because of the job increase and large advancements in technology, it actually had more of a negative effect. Some of the negative effects of industrialization
Globalization has an impact on everyone. From the food people eat and what they wear, those products came from all around the world and is a product of globalization. That globalization is the international integration of ideas, products, and culture. But these products, ideas, and culture could come to a loss though these things are all very beneficial. Although there are times when globalization has costs in terms of deadly viruses is true, but the benefits do outweigh the costs when new ideas are introduced.
The sepoy rebellion was caused by a feeling of British superiority over the Indian people. They didn’t respect them as much as they should and this went on for a while, but the last straw for the Indians was when the British used pigs and cow fat to oil and grease their guns. It started when the British vehemently “encouraged” Sepoys(and other Indians) to convert to Christianity, and it was their intent to have Christianity be their prime religion “[The Proclamation of the King of Delhi] stated that the English Government intended to make all brahmins ito christians…”. (Sita Ram, Document C). Then after that, the new rifle came out. Everyone was being trained to use it, and one of the things that bothered the Sepoys was the fact that the cartridges

Imagine two lives: one is boring with people sitting around all day complaining. Another life is exciting with people laughing and complimenting those around them. Two polar opposites, but both situations re-invent the people involved. Within a person’s life he or she may go through hundreds or even thousands of phases. These phases can also be referred to as re-inventions. One might be so bold as to say this appears every day, every hour, and even every minute. People are continuously and subconsciously re-inventing themselves in their everyday lives.
Firstly, the globalisation has changed the way of economic nowadays. What can be defined by economic globalisation is the increasing economic integration and interdependence of national, regional and local economies across the world through an intensification of cross-border movement of goods, services, technologies and capital. Whereas globalisation is a broad of set of processes concerning multiple networks of economic, political and cultural interchange, contemporary economic globalisation is propelled by the rapid growing significance of information in all types of productive activities and by the developments in science and technology. Some theorist also defined Globalisation as a historical stage of accelerated expansion of market capitalism, like the one experienced in the 19th century with the
In my perspective, globalisation is a practice by which the world is becoming progressively connected as a result of immensely increased trade and cross culture diversity. Globalisation enhances the use of outsourcing and offshoring products. The biggest companies are now not only national firms but are replaced by multinational corporations with subsidiaries in many countries. Its outcomes in our lives, being intertwined with people in all parts of the world via the food, the dress code, the music, the information we get and the ideas we hold. The main classification of globalisation are Economic Globalisation, Political Globalisation, Social Globalisation. While other types of globalisation include: Environmental Globalisation, Financial Globalisation, Cultural globalisation, Military Globalisation, Technological Globalisation and Ecological Globalisation.

“How does 21st century globalization differ from 20th century globalization?” Globalization heavily implies the opening of local and nationalistic perspectives to a broader outlook of an interconnected and interdependent world with free transfer of capital, goods, and services across national frontiers. It also occasionally discusses the less common dimensions of globalization, such as environmental globalization or military globalization . Those dimensions, however, receive much less attention the three described above, as academic literature commonly subdivides globalization into three major areas which are economic globalization, cultural globalization and political globalization. The evolution of globalization is still open for debate according to some scholar’s dates back to Ice Age when people used to travel in search of food, trade and security. But some scholars also claim that “Globalization” is a new trend which technically emerged only in modern times or during the 20th century. However, the fact is that “Globalization” took place as a process of mobilization of human capital, travel, cultural exchange, free trade and modernization. Over the years the trend of globalization has seen some basic changes, which is the topic of this essay. This essay is about the difference between the trend of globalization in 20th century and 21st century. The trend of globalization in 20th century and 21st century differs in the following way: Period The 20th century was the period
When it comes to comparing the past with the present, the idea of globalisation is deliberated quite often. The twentieth century coined the term ‘globalisation’ as international organisations were introduced, aiming to reduce trade barriers and maintaining healthy global trade relations. On the other hand, the twenty-first century induced a fear of globalisation as companies were outsourcing their production allowing certain societies to continue development while others remained constant. In June 2016, Brexit (Britain’s exit) took place because the majority of the United Kingdom (UK) voted to leave the European Union (EU). This event exhibits people disrupting the political mandate by voting against cultural and economic globalization. This paper briefly analyses the trend in trade over the last century that built the unstable political environment that stemmed the result of the UK elections. Initially, it will describe globalisation in the 20th century proceeding to that of the 21st century. Then, it will deliberate Brexit and the reasons behind it. Concluding by stating that globalisation is a valuable sign of moving forward that should be correctly reinforced globally and accepted by people accordingly.
