Think global, act local: Part 1

think global act local

Globalism and its effects have been one of the major driving factors behind the creation of Agápē Movement. And ever since I was a young boy I have been immensely opposed to globalism; even from a young age, the idea of centralized control over a global population seemed eerie and unnatural.

 As I grew older and saw the effects first hand, it gradually became evident to me that globalism would soon have devastating effects on unique cultures throughout the world, and will encroach deeply into our freedoms and liberties.

 What does an unelected bureaucrat in Brussels know about the life, needs, and culture of a fisherman in Thai land, a farmer in outback Australia or a restaurant owner in Mullumbimby? the answer is simple, "nothing".

 The question is why do we let these unelected bureaucrats dictate to our governments the way we conduct vast aspects of our lives? The complete answer is far to complex to present in a blog such as this, but the concise conclusion can easily be drawn from taking a close look at the united nations and its policies, and the "non-binding" global pacts they make with countries such as Australia.

 Those of you who are more inclined may like to look into the concept of "the global division of labor".

 I am sure there are some of you reading this blog, who may be thinking, what is the problem with globalism? It brings us so much good, like exposure to different cultures, cheaper produce, access to many other things form many other countries, and some may say it's great for the economy. And you may be right in thinking these things. But the bottom line is everything has a price, and the question we as a society should be asking our selves is what are the consequences of globalism, and are all the seemingly positives worth the eventual cost of the negatives.

 I could talk all day about the negatives of globalism, But I don't think that is necessary when all you have to do is look at what chaos is being caused by, a virus that originated in China, and what it is doing to global economies, social life, local businesses, and people's mental and physical health. I hope and pray that the current situation will help people ponder the question, "is globalism healthy and natural, and is globalism what nature intended". I have always been an advocate of supporting your local community and environment to create a better world. I hope more people will look much deeper into the deeper and true cost of globalism. and look inwards to improve themselves and their local community.

 In these trying times please support local businesses, local shops run by families, and stay safe and positive.
