Drop Nationalism, Adopt Globalism
We always have been taught that divisions divide us. But divisions do not always divide us. Sometimes it unites us. Some divisions are meant to enhance the rate of growth. We divided our planet into continents and then in countries and so on. The sole aim is to contribute to a global cause. But with passing time, these divisions are becoming futile. Now, these divisions are actually dividing us. What did we miss? Why our strategy is not giving us desired results?
Since the beginning of civilisation, humans learnt integrity and unity is fundamental for survival. But as years accumulated, we learnt division is equally important. It is devilishly difficult to work with a large group of people sharing different identities. So dividing them into small groups was the most appropriate thing. It helped us achieve a tremendous amount of success. This pushed every nation to work hard to grow. These individual efforts contributed in success of the whole planet. But the idea of development no longer unites us but idea of competition does. Now we work to compete with other nations instead of contributing in success of each other. The idea of outperforming others drives us. This is not a problem to a certain extent. But some choose wrong ways to exceed. They compromised with lives of their citizens, they used terrorism to sabotage success of others, they used dirty politics to make more profits, and sometimes they didn’t even take care of their people. These things are becoming more common nowadays. This local mindset is leading us nowhere.
We have to work locally to contribute globally. Like if a nation succeeds, whole world succeeds. If a nation fails, whole world learns. Let’s take an example.
USA made first internet browser but whole world can take advantage of it. INDIA showed path of spirituality to world. JAPAN taught us important disciplines of life. Every nation tries to show light to others. But this thing is becoming rare nowadays. We should help other nations in difficult times instead of establishing our own sovereignty.
Debates on brain drain and gain doesn’t make much sense if we think globally. Because the brain drain of one nation is the brain gain of another. Let’s come together and contribute to well being of greater society. Put nation, religion aside and contribute to the growth of our planet. We should drop the idea of “nationalism” and adopt the idea of “globalism”. We(citizens) make nation, so if we change our thinking instinctively, the nation will change spontaneously. Because our planet matters more than any other thing.
