Globalism is an issue that has come under increased scrutiny in recent times, particularly since the election of Donald Trump. I see this as a positive thing as I think there are certain aspects of globalism that need to be reevaluated. But in order to have a productive discussion, it is important to establish what globalism is.
It is outside the scope of this article to identify the people and organizations that are responsible for implementing globalism. For now, I will collectively refer to them as “globalists.” Instead, this article will focus on the economic policy that is being promoted by the globalists. It is important to view globalism in economic terms as economics provides both the means and ideological justification for its implementation.
For the uninitiated, globalism is the movement to unite all of humanity into one civilization. Again, it is outside the scope of this article to discuss all the pros and cons of this movement. The globalist economic model aims to create a unified economic system that allows all of the world’s countries to trade freely with one another. It follows a standardized formula that is applied in a remarkably consistent manner given the wide range of cultures that have been subjected to its implementation:
- Identify an export (i.e. natural resources, labor, information, etc.) that allows said country to trade competitively on the global market.
- Institute green revolution farming practices (i.e. monocropping, pesticides, manufactured fertilizer, genetically modified organisms, mechanized farming, etc.). This frees up the labor force, allowing them to participate in activities separate from subsistence farming.
- Relocate the freed labor force into urban areas, and direct them towards economic activity based on said country’s chief export.
- Institute a fractional reserve banking system in conjunction with Keynesian economic policy. Have said country, in turn, pursue the three major macroeconomic goals (i.e. persistent economic growth, full employment and price stability).
- Finance said country’s modernization via a loan from an international bank.
- Modify and/or replace said country’s customs and values so that they are compatible with feminist ideology. This simultaneously allows a larger percentage of said country’s population (i.e. women) to enter the workforce while escaping the pitfalls of a Malthusian trap.
I understand that this is too technical for many people to understand. Certainly there are some details I am getting wrong. That is okay. This article does not serve as a complete argument per se, but rather as a base from which I will create future arguments. It is my hope that in time my readers will come to understand both the reality and significance of the globalist economic model.
