Second, as we have seen, there are signs that many of the contemporary effects of economic and cultural globalization are not considered legitimate by an increasing number and variety of populist groups all over the world. If the means to the fulfillment of basic needs are seen to be eroded by processes of globalization, reaction, rejection and increasing hostility are to be expected. Thus, in the Global South globalization has weakened the state as a barrier to Western economic and cultural domination, creating an even more acute sense of vulnerability, and in the North a popular perception of economic globalization as a threat to community (i.e. valued relationships and identity) and economic security has increased receptivity to xenophobic and protectionist extremism.
In summary, Burton's work indicates that, ideology aside, globalization cannot continue indefinitely in its contemporary form. Either processes of national and global governance will evolve to better accommodate the basic needs and values of those groups now mobilizing against current patterns of change, or the frequency and intensity of disruption and reaction will continue to accelerate with unpredictable, but decidedly negative, short to medium run effects. Both scenarios indicate that the only constant is change.

Libya - Globalization and Peace

Integrating a "global perspective" into courses necessarily involves examining whether traditional disciplinary assumptions still apply in a global context and, if not, how they need to be translated in order to remain relevant. In what follows, I map out this process by tracing one "intellectual journey" in order to derive some general questions and principles. I start with a concept that is important to several disciplines, including political science, sociology, and psychology: public opinion. The exercise involves attaching the label "global" to the concept, and then attempting to analyze the meaning of the new term. In this case, the concept becomes "global public opinion" or "world opinion," a concept I have previously explored in relation to traditional notions of public opinion.

From this perspective, the conflicts discussed above reflect a spreading determination of the world's peoples to promote alternative agendas to that currently driving globalization, and to thereby participate in decisions shaping the future of their planet; a determination which should be seen as democratic in the broadest sense of the term. The very acceleration of this trend, enabled in large part by new information technologies, permits a degree of optimism that adaptive responses to the conflicts will eventually be found. However, the continuing gap between unity and integration in the contemporary world order foreshadows further tensions and conflicts until its institutions and processes of governance can accommodate both the universalizing and the localizing effects of globalization.

The Conflicts of Globalization - Charles O

In his third point, Castells links the cultural reaction discussed earlier to the deteriorating economic conditions of what he calls "Fourth World" societies. He suggests that movements of reaction--whether ethnic, fundamentalist or Marxist have in common a wish to:


Namukasa notes that a "non-critical understanding, teaching, and use of mathematics may simply perpetuate oppressive values, pervasive ideologies, and power structures." Accordingly, she points out, critical theorists argue that mathematics teaching may serve to impose its symbolic language and the dominance of certain groups.14 Understanding mathematics in this way illustrates how its "universal" symbols are not non-utopian, opening a fresh perspective into this language. Further, poststructuralists argue that "mathematical meaning is determined by signs and a play of difference, and by a silenced, suffocated other."15 What is often perceived as a set of skills or knowledge open to all becomes a hierarchical means of separation among groups. Analyzing this problem further illustrates how mathematics, too, must meet the challenge of being non-hierarchical in the face of global forces.

Indonesian language is one of languages in the world affected by globalization. The larger vocabularies we have from loan words of foreign language and technological advances, and then language, people and culture of Indonesia recognized by citizen of the world, as well as developing linguistic style of literary work in Indonesian are some examples of positive effects of globalization. Conversely, linguistic hierarchy has emerged linguistic stigmatization and lack of contextual linguistic consciousness, and the role of Indonesian as a unifying tool and identity of Indonesia has also faded away. This condition shall be taken into consideration by linguistic strategy, for example, by making use of hegemonic foreign language within the function limits of communication and by avoiding formation of ideological construction which can be done by suspending an agreement. In the such way, it will be able to construct people of polyphonic language user.
