Facing The Inevitable

The increasing rate of globalisation has a devastating impact on the cultures of the world, recently. Not only societies and their life styles are affected but also nature takes its share from this destruction. Although there are decent ways to which systematic globalisation is heading us, as some may argue, the awaiting menace is much more important and frightening: certain death.

Beginning with the industrial revolution, globalisation took humanity onto another level of civilisation which later allowed us to rule all sorts of resources that are found on earth. By manufacture vast amounts of production took place in order to supply every individual with their basic necessities. This amount of production eventually lead to inequality between the productors and the consumers. Two main classes appeared in the society as a result of this production madness. First class was the ones who owned production facilities which are mainly factories, and the second class consists of consumers that are further classified by their income rates. The first class earned ridiculous amounts of money due to their control of global production. They began to become more arrogant and mean towards the lower classes as they see those who work them as their slaves. Production dramatically increased while the natural resources of the world decreased proportionally.

So many ideologies became very popular thanks to globalisation such as humanism and the universal declaration of human rights became the basis of law and manners all around the world. The idea is simple: Even if the person belongs to a lower class than the others one cannot treat them as if they are not a human being. Due to the fact that everyone has the right to live made the population burst since governments now have to protect every citizen of theirs and give them a qualified life. However this sudden increase in population is the lethal danger threatening the future of all humanity.

Population increases in an exponential way while natural resources we use to feed the population fades away. This means, in the future it is, as a matter of fact, going to be very difficult to provide some basic necessities, even food. But will humanity survive? The question may seem absurd, but it is certainly a very hard task to answer it. We can say that, there are two possibilities. Either we, as humanity, take our precautions and actually expect the unexpected in order to survive; or we do nothing and nature itself wipes us out. One may ask: What are the precautions we must take to end such catastrophe? If there is so much of something and if the amount is dangerous enough, than the wisest decision would be decreasing the number of that thing. That is what should be done. The ones who do not have any contribution on mankind’s civilisation or on science, art, or any kind of activity which make men progress. These people exist only to consume the resources and make no useful output out of it. The sad truth is these people are the largest part of the population of the world.

Although this idea seems a bit off today, this sort of a solution to world’s current and future problems is inevitable. What shall be done, will be done, soon or later.
