Globalization

            Globalization is the growing interconnectedness and the interrelatedness of the society. It is an all day change that is crucial in the human history as it influences how they relate to each other and the resultant effect in communication between the human beings (Ritzer, 2010). This is therefore a process that is undertaken among planets or set of activities increasing the flow of people, places or information in different directions in relation to the various structures that they encounter. This therefore results in barriers that affect the flow (Jones, 2010).

According to Martell (2010) in the sociology of globalization, in the world today, the worldwide relations have been seen as getting more intense as emphasis placed on the importance of interactions between the local environment and the globe. The local world reaction may thus not only be shaped by globalization but also react in an expected alternative way.

The increasing number of formal and informal bridges that have been created throughout the globe by the process of migration across the borders has created an influx change in population in the various countries. The networks expedite the flow of unnumbered things but they are best suited for the propulsion of information. This is made possible due to the many communication apparatus like the telephone calls, snail mails, e-mails, blogs, the social networks and the sending of parcels and the letters. (Ritzer, 2010).  The need for an adequate transport system has also resulted in the increase in the rate of unification of the various countries as the world has been reduced to a village. This is due to the increase in the many forms of transportation of the cheap labour and professionals to the various industries of requirement. These are; Railway transport, air travel, road transport and water among other forms.

The various ways in which globalization has increased however result in unwanted consequences. This is due to the pivotal role of the state in globalizing capitalism hence influencing the various countries as the jurisdiction of different sovereignty is over land, space and sea. This has forced the various governments to facilitate regulations between the international corporations. The unification through the privatization of structural programs hence promoting corruption between the less and more developed countries (Farazmand, (2004).

Finally, a bleak glimpse at the various effects of globalization provides an open way to view the world as an interdependent entity relaying heavily on each other. The spread of the various minerals for example provides a venue of enhancing the international trade that promotes relative communication among the various countries through the buying and selling of the subject minerals. Therefore globalization being a big part of the various economies is a tool that should be treasured for propulsion of civilization and harmony among other mutual benefits that have not been discussed.
