Major Historic Steps of Globalisation into the Global Age
It is true, the word “globalisation” is not really old. But the process underlying the term already started about 2000 years ago with the beginning of the Roman Empire and led mankind into the Global Age. The birth of the Global Age was August 6, 1945. From this day it became clear for the first time that potentially the entire life on the globe can be affected by man-made activities. Hiroshima is the symbolic keyword for that new quality both of human potential and human risk. Besides this, essential attributes of the Global Age are high hybridisation and standardisation of cultures in any understanding, political disenfranchisement and dis-involvement of citizens, overflow of information and concomitant decline of compassion, increase of transcontinental division of labour and of world trade interdependency, more millionaires and global players on the one hand and more homeless people and regions of famine on the other. But the basis of all human activities and of their results remain the same: natural and social needs of human beings and their creative and constructive potential.
