It is de facto that various multinational platforms established under the political globalization are alternatives for waging wars when countering any international issues, such as territorial disputes and human rights. To cite an illustration, The Treaty of establishing the European Coal and Steel Community (ECSC) signed by countries including the feuds, Germany and France, in order for further economic cooperation for peace. In Schuman Declaration, one of the objectives of founding the ECSC is eliminating the age-lone opposition between Germany and France. After all, Germany and France could settle down their
Huntington’s postulate references the future of civilization. It is important to note that he sees our current nation-state model as enduring, yet The United States of America appears to be on a collision course with“the rest” of the civilizations in the non-westernized world. Though there is some evidence to support the diminishing role of the U.S. in Carroll Quigley’s model, loss of power is certainly not an inevitability. Huntington calls for cooperation and coexistence between the major world civilizations as a way to stem future culturally based conflict. While the West must appreciate it’s own unique culture, Samuel calls an imposition of those values, “in the emerging world of ethnic conflict and civilizational clash, Western : belief in the universality of Western culture suffers three problems: it is false; it is immoral; and it is dangerous” (Huntington 1996: 21).
What path should the allied powers have gone down in order to create a world peace? Would the world consist of less poverty? How would world history and economy be different from how it is today? Nations opposing Adolf Hitler should have used collective security to potentially stop a world war.

Mahan was another great historian who helped justify imperialism. Mahan was a famous naval strategist and wanted America to expand its navy and economy overseas. He preached that in order to gain the most power and money America needed to explore world wide economy and begin importing some things instead of only exporting her own goods. “In their mutual relations, these industries resemble the activities of a modern ironclad that has heavy armor, but an inferior engine and no guns; mighty for defense, weak for offense.” (Mahan, A.T.page 816). Mahan believed that in order for America to conquer world wide economy they needed to control the seas.
Over the last three decades, China has experienced extraordinary economic growth and development and has been successfully integrated into the global economy. Now ranking as the second largest economy in the world, China’s success has been greatly attributed to the gradual shift towards market systems. Though the overall economic system of China has been significantly revolutionized, the political regime has remained inherently authoritarian and the government essentially monitors the capitalistic practices that occur in many sectors within the country. Nevertheless, this powerful augmentation of the Chinese economic system and the fervent expansion of China’s role in the global economy and political stage has presented the United States with
This is a perfect metaphor for Kissinger’s “balance of power.” With a firm conviction of permanent revolution, Mao Zedong’s courting of America was purely tactical, while Zhou Enlai’s was for a longer-lasting alliance; both felt the potential threat of Soviet expansion. Because he crossed the line in befriending imperialist America, Zhou fell from Mao’s grace and was replaced by Deng
Shanghai is home to 23 million people in 2013, and is considered to be China's largest city. Today, China’s population has exceeded 1.2 billion people.

At first, kings ruled ancient China.
