What is Globalist

Globalism is a broader way of globalization: the changes in economic marketing and commercial practices and the transnational flow of capital. A system that believes people, goods and information should be shared and transferred to one country to better society. It is also based on free trade and free access to markets. The mindset is to care about the entire world instead of just the country where you were born. According to the text, “Globalism, therefore, revolutionizes the certainties of the past and inserts entire populations into a more open, changing, and diverse world, often enhancing the array of options of how and where to live their lives. Bauman’sBauman’s tourists embody this freedom of choice and movement, so dear to liberal thought. “Arditi, B. (2004). Globalization is a system mostly dealing with the world economic system functioning through an explicit dialectic with time and space affected by sophisticated technology and communication. States and governments utilized globalization to restraint policies that might otherwise not accept by the public. The reading states, “Politically, globalization plays a major role in issues of state sovereignty, world- order, extra-state policies, and administration practices. Culturally, it is intervening dramatically in the (re)shaping of identities and self-conceptions, the premises of human encounter and exchange of world-interpretations, and the frame of diverse sensitivities, creativities, and responses to aesthetic experience.” Papastephanou, M. (2005).

As a global citizen in the world of advanced technology, I can network with everyone worldwide. I can learn about their culture from a live video. I can take classes online from an instructor located in another country. I can get involved in activist via social media worldwide to end global poverty.

Global Citizenship is the way people think and act toward the whole world. According to Reysen & Katzarske-Miller, they identified Global Citizenship as having a love for everyone globally, respect for differences, support for the environment, support others, care, and feel responsible for others.

After reading the article by Reysen and Katzarska-Miller, the definition of people who focus on Global Citizenship have the heart for the world and take action to protect it. They are on a journey spiritually to take the example of Mother Theresa. The reading states, “Mother Teresa (1910–1997) was a Roman Catholic nun who devoted her life to serving the poor and needy worldwide. She spent many years in Calcutta, India, where she founded the Missionaries of Charity, a religious congregation devoted to helping those in great need.” Pettinger, T. (2006). In another article, the author states, “Global Citizenship is defined as awareness, caring, and embracing cultural diversity while promoting social justice and sustainability, coupled with a sense of responsibility to act. “Reysen, S., & Katzarska-Miller, I. (2013).

The author states that “Prior theory and research suggest that being aware of one’sone’s connection with others in the world (global awareness) and embedded in settings that value global Citizenship (normative environment) lead to greater identification with global citizens. “Reysen, S., & Katzarska-Miller, I. (2013).

I choose intergroup empathy and environmental sustainability outcomes of global Citizenship from the article. “Global issues are present in all areas of our lives as citizens of the world. They affect our economies, our environment, our capabilities as humans, and our processes for making decisions regarding cooperation at the global level (which this book will call global governance).” Bhargava, V. K. (2006).

The two personal examples in my life that illustrate the development of Global Citizenship are my friends on my social media page are from all over the world. My classes at Ashford University are from all different countries, and we shared experiences through our discussions.

I joined Facebook because it is a global community that commits its energy to build a long term social infrastructure to bring humanity together. I mostly communicate with my cousins and friends from all over the world there. Some people do not understand or are afraid of social media because it may not be safe; however, I balance the good and the bad, and I do not risk it.

English composition and Quantitative reasoning are the two specific general education courses that influenced me to become a Global Citizenship. I would be able to communicate better with different people because of my knowledge of the class. I will understand what I read and use proper grammar. I would be up to par, and my writings and papers will contain the right citing. My skills in quantitative reasoning afford me the ability to use mathematics in real-life situations and solve problems. I could read a separate chart and graphs and comprehend what I read. I learned arithmetic, algebra, geometry, and do data analysis also understand different signs and fractions.

The first time I got exposed to the concept of global Citizenship was nearly twenty-two years ago; I decided to get connected to about one million people from all over the world. I got involved in social media so I can interact with anyone from across the globe. I keep an open mind with I meet people from other countries. I also watched a concert about Global Citizenship, and they collected money to get rid of poverty from all around the world. “The end of poverty is in sight if an additional $350 billion is secured each year for the world’s world’s poorest countries for the next 10 years. To do that, we, along with our partner Teneo, are campaigning to get governments, corporations, philanthropists, and, most importantly, you, to take action now for people and the planet. Together we can achieve the possible dream. “I tried to learn about a different culture and how I can help as much as I can.

Within the reading, it states, “As suggested by Golmohamad (2008), Global Citizenship is a mindset or attitude one takes. In effect, individuals perceive themselves as global citizens and can feel a psychological connection with global citizens. “Bhargava, V. K. (2006). It is essential to become a global citizen because it will help the world and make it better for the next generation. The economy, the planet, and the people would benefit greatly when and if everyone becomes a global citizen.
