Is Globalism The New Imperialism?

Colonialism largely ended following the end of World War II. From then on, a certain pre-packed democracy has been pushed by the so-called West.

The West dumped colonialism at the height of opposition and resistance from indigenious people waking up to the hugely lopsided and exploitative nature of umperialism. But the hidden motives of exploitation and lopsidedness did not stop.

With that superficial end of imperialism, democracy was packaged and shoved down the throat of the vastly confused people of the colonised world in a subtly divide-and-rule nature, planned solely to keep the previouslt colonised people constantly arguing. This helped create the same West as the arbitar thereby giving them (the West) the free privilledge of control...

To achieve the above and ensure that the plan is successful, strangers were forced into countries, chiefs and rulers were imposed, constitutions were formulated, some written by experts who has little or not affinity to the new 'Nation-State, thus not reflecting the indigenous people.

The West has never really stopped exploiting these places: from solid natural resources to artfacts, then onto liquid and gas; eventually with abundant monies paid atimes to the wrong person, they ensured that these blessings became a curse.

Where that isnt, they told these places that their banks arent wont anything, their stock exchange is nothing or are their money valued.

As the West claims it liberated much of the under-developed world, it kept so many privilledges to itself. From freedom of movement, to running of international instruments it creates; the UN, IMF, WHO, ILO, World Bank, and the list goes including sports, art, etc.

Not only that, the West burnt CO2 for maximum comforts, invented weapons of mass destruction and finally invented globalisation.

At the beginning, they paraded it as 'global village'; only that not every resident has the freedom to run around it their supposedly 'own' village. Stringent restrictions targeted at these under-developed world limits social mobility. This increased inequality. Althought they claimed that the world is a village; it really is so just for people of Western citizenship; they can play sports where they like, shoot films including rewriting other people's history, trade as they wish, direct the media extend their universities, etc.

But it seems this new globalisation has now revived yet another resistance. Like Nelson Mandela whom was part of the sect that resisted colonisation many are today refusing to be regarded as 2nd class human.

The same anger that radicalized Mandela is now radicalizing many other young men and women albeit in different measures. But fight this inequality we must. We may all disagree on which alproach is the best but one thing is clear, as long as the injustice and unfair intervention continues from the West, many more will rise. Some will be worse than others.

Globalization has given us unjust wars fuelled by self-centred foreign policies that are purely formulated to keep hold of world power and force everyone to yield whatever that power wants.

What however, is confusing is that these foreign policies are coated with the sweet icing of aid or democracy or trade. Yet their inner content and eventual implementation produce nothing but manipulation. Resistance is quickly labeled undemocratic. Yet most of those resisting are usually products of the West who later deviated from the script. More like the mythical legend of Satan and God.

Globalisation therefore is imperialism packaged as democracy; operated through stealth and aimed at keeping the under-developed world at its place by crushing all opposition; starting by creating them to using them to destroy themselves.
