Globalisation Isn’t Dead Shed Slick Cover Story
It’s becoming more common to say that the golden cover age in globalization is over due to. The rise of nationalism, protectionism, and Donald Trump’s America First vision. The three-decade-old global Village is closing its doors. Globalization was never about internationalism or shared development. Globalization has been more of a political concept than a reality.
Global governance is merely a strategic term. The term global governance is define as systems that rule at all levels human activity, from family to international organisation. Where the pursuit of goals through control has transnational consequences. It obscures the true objectives of globalization.
This Western-led system has, over the past 30 cover years been primarily a managerial approach for complex natural and human phenomena. It has in fact reproduced deliberately the problems it was suppose to address through global collaboration: crime and environmental devastation, human trafficking, insecurity, terrorism, gender-based violence and political suppression.
Neoliberalism is another name for globalization. It has primarily served to reify white supremacy and generate profit. It is still alive today in this sense.
Local Neoliberalism Cover
Michel Foucault, a French philosopher, has criticized neoliberalism. He argued that states that enforce justice have been abandon by neoliberal governments. We have today managerial states that use policy to manage the growth and health of the population. This is a government decision-making process to alter or orientate social. Actions in the form of a series of legal, technical and political elements.
They don’t do this through direct intervention, as in welfare states like Ecuador or Norway. Which actively promote and protect the economic and social well being of their citizens. Instead, neoliberal nations, like the United States, reduce social policies to a minimum. Providing the lowest level of assistance to the most vulnerable members of society. While encouraging the wealthy and corporate sectors to finance health and education incenvitising market, according to its defenders.
The neoliberal government on the domestic front achieves maximum productivity. While minimizing social responsibility by convincing people they are responsible to their wealth and well-being. This is the old bootstraps narrative. People who can’t afford the necessities of life often left to their own fates.
This governance mentality is best illustrate by the American free-market insurance. Fiasco that left out 33 million citizens, poor people and young, healthy individuals.
Negative Externalities Cover
Modern capitalism cannot reproduce itself unless people around the globe produce, consume, and then produce again. Global governance is the way we manage the international expenses this globalised market has.
Globalization’s powers have used global forces to control the populations at home and abroad, ranging from migration and the environment to drugs and terrorism. According to Forbes magazine’s 2015 assessment of globalisation, the system was originally design to raise all boats in rich and poor countries. It has use in practice to ensure the survival and reproduction for white and western peoples.
This April 2016 Harper’s interview, in which an ex-aide to Nixon admits that the war against drugs meant to criminalize the blacks, will convince you.
Many laws have been created to marginalize the poorest and darkest-skinned of the world, and, in predominantly white societies and gay men and women, often to the point that they lead to their death.
Unchecked free market capitalism is not responsible for violence and environmental destruction. These are externalities that need to be managed. We see that homicides and pollution are mainly caused in the developing world.
One such production center is Central America. Transnational corporations are grabbing timber, zinc and other resources, rapidly destroying the environment.
Locals who defend their land and themselves against exploitation are often killed or criminalized. Latin America is the most dangerous place in which to be an environmental activist.
Rich countries are forced to bear these problems if they have policies that both explicitly and implicitly target their poorest neighborhoods. It’s the Native Americans of Standing Rock who are hit by oil companies and the black and Latino drug addicts who end up in jail, rather than their white counterparts.
Migration And Murder Cover
Sometimes people in the developing countries get sick of the struggle and want to flee their dangerous or poisoned homelands. There is a solution: domestic and international migration policies.
Donald Trump, Marine Le Pen and others believe that border enforcement is necessary for national security. It protects the natives from terror, violence, and criminality.
Securitisation discourse is a term that describes migrants in three ways. None of them are good.
First, migrants are transnational actors that pose strategic threats to host countries. Right-wing politicians in the UK have suggested a link between recent terrorist attacks and immigration, and offered a xenophobic explanation to close English borders.
Second, migrants pose a threat both to a country’s national identity as well as to its cultural and ethnic balance. This idea leads to racism, racial identity politics, and, in particular, the numerous attempts to limit Muslim headscarves and veils in France, Germany and Belgium, as well as other European countries.
Last but not least, migrants are economically competitive and profit from Western welfare state social benefits. This category includes Trump’s promise to restore the working class American jobs by deporting illegal Mexicans, and the Labour-Market rationale behind Brexit.
Nothing New Under The Global Sunlight
Although the current political state is uncertain and scary, it has not fundamentally changed. The current right-wing revival is merely a confirmation of neoliberalism’s fourth decade-old roots. It doesn’t need subtle political discourses on global governance or international cooperation for its continued success. In the last year, racism and nationalism democratically elected and approve by referendums in the UK, the US, Hungary, and Argentina. These are legit movements, not subcultures and aberrations, but plain-faced political preferences.
