The march toward globalization

With global markets interconnected, today’s economical uncertainty is prepare the political landscape for changes towards globalization.

With global markets interconnected, today’s rapidly growing economical uncertainty is helping prepare the world’s political landscape for major changes towards globalization. The affects of longstanding dictatorships being toppled in the Middle East, and European countries facing economic collapse, are felt globally.

In such a climate of dire predictions there are those who have taken to the streets in protest of years of corporate greed and corruption, seemingly endorsed by politicians and paid for with hard earned tax-dollars.

Although these protesters obviously lack a form of leadership and clearly defined objectives, they all share a strong sense that things need to change. As global disasters are lurking on the horizon, and with our world getting smaller and smaller, it seems inevitable that eventually all countries on earth will somehow be impacted by what happens in other nations. We have already seen strange viruses easily spread through modern travel. And the fact that about 20 million tons of waste from the tsunami in Japan are floating towards BC’s coast shows that we are not immune to the fallout of another nation’s calamity.

With biblical prophecies of increased numbers and magnitude of earthquakes and famines already fulfilled, there is also the prediction of globalization and a one-world system. And while the UN is steadily gaining power and influence, such a prediction seems more probable every day.

Perhaps, if we would study the Bible we might find more answers to the world’s future than any politician could give us.
