Our Global Behavior and AcceptanceWhen considering what our future society will consider as evil, such aswe view slavery today, we must look to the past to estimate the future. Thepast two hundred years have led to enormous changes in the way we treat ourfellow man. The next two hundred years, I believe, will lead to much morelegislation and concern for the global impact of nation states and theirpractices. The human race has come to a point where we need to take carefulconcern for all issues. The bar will be raised so to speak concerning globalinjustices. I have laid out a few current events that will be considered globalinjustices in the future.

With globalization becoming more and more of a necessity in thisworld, the future would naturally weed out isolationist countries. It seemsthat a nation state could not survive without some economic interaction withthe rest of the world. Furthermore it would be advantageous to takeadvantage of outside offerings. There is always a need and a resource withina nation. The trick is to tap into the resource and aid in the need. Not to justdominate a market and leave the problems to the people of the market onedominates. Of course it is not written, but should there not be commoncourtesy in global affairs? This globalization will also eventually lead to theapparent obligation to aid in the success of humans across the globe, ratherthan an individual group of humans (ie.states, governments, etc.) When thisapparent process Page 2becomes evident in society, people naturally will consider crimes againsthumanity as more and more unacceptable. Director General of The World Trade Organization, Mike Moore, saidat the last World Economic Forum, that, Its not politically correct to say,but the big economies have needs too. And frankly… if the big economies getthe sniffles, the rest of us get pneumonia. This leads to the acknowledgmentand realization of the domino effect, and how important it is to consider theimplications of what we do. In the future, common society will considerisolationism and lack of willingness to aide others as evil. Humans willaccept the notion that we are all related, and that all of what we do affectseach other directly. A secondary thought looks at current issues such as theIsraeli-Palestinian conflict. The main thing besides the fact that these holywars are wrong, is that they are obsolete. They serve no apparent purpose thatI have been informed of. There are reasons to the conflict, but these reasonsdo not in any way justify the bloodshed that continues. These wars continuetoday when there are much more important issues at hand. It seems absurd tothink that as much as we take pride in our accomplishments, we still cantshake another mans hand. The previous millennium was dominated by God.

The Reformation, the Crusades, music, the arts, were all according to God…

This century is dominated by increasing technology-biotechnology. (MichaelL. Dertouzos, Director of MIT lab of Computer Science) That quote seems totell me that if a lot of these third world countries dont jump on board the global view, they will be left far behind. Generations of people would be lostin this process of globalization. These groups of people would of course still Page 3exist, but it would seem like sitting in a classroom learning how to improvean economy but the class was taught in a completely foreign language. Isthere any way for an economy that is generations behind to catch up? Is itevil to leave them behind? No doubt the role of God is important, and in mymind the most important. However, does it change the price of a hamburger?No. That is why separation of church and state is so ingenious. Letgovernment handle the problems around us, while our religions handle theproblems within us.

What then of disease? Is it evil for humans to ignore AIDS in Africa?Is it a crime against humanity to let this get out of hand? Could it be that thiscrime, if one can call that presently, is inherent? And what does one call anunpreventable crime? Surely we learned from plagues in the past, and whatwe have learned was simple. We must work together, to devise a solution.

This is yet another reason why isolationism is so barbaric. Without access tothe proper information and drugs disease cannot be halted. If a country wasto isolate themselves and ignore the reality of the world around them they willsurely be forgotten.

In random conversations between family and friends, one can reach anunderstanding of what will be considered to be evil in the future. Some peershave told me that wasting the governments money on the drug war is evil.

This is an issue with domestic and global implications. Drug lords andfamilies generate incomes beyond that of the country itself. How can alegitament government compete? Many social responses to this is that thiswar cannot be won. Wasting global concern and efforts for this war is surly alose situation. Where there is a demand, there is a market. The less of aproduct the higher the demand. If a country bans the use of a drug they raise Page 4the demand, in turn paying the incomes of drug lords. This issue has a placein every aspect of economics and relations between nations. From thedomestic dealing with the flow of drugs in a town to the international dealingwith massive amounts of money and drugs between nations, we are learningthat this is a very important aspect of global analysis. This leads me toconclude that from a global perspective the drug wars between nations isunacceptable because these are wars without results. Senseless killing andwrongful imprisonment are evident. Can one blame a farmer in a third worldcountry for growing the only thing that makes anyone a decent income in thatcountry? I say it is wrong to incriminate that man, and I believe the world ofthe future will agree with me. So many issues and practices that we tolerate today will not betolerated in the future. To ignore our fellow man on a global level will beviewed as wrong. To allow senseless bloodshed will be considered wrong,and there will be a global effort to increase prosperity across the globe.

Nations will act as one. Perhaps most importantly nations will think beforethey act, which will in turn avoid many global injustices. As for todayspractices, ignorance will soon be looked at as an injustice rather than anexcuse to not help one another.
