While globalization has created many interconnects around the globe, changing in people mindsets to think in global perspective is lagging behind. Many still think in terms of national states, instead of global interest.

However, problems won’t wait for us – global economics slowdown, food crisis, global warming, epidemics, all requires global thinking to deal with them. Unfortunately human will wait until crisis before actions, and so often resulted unnecessary loss. I think the improvement of global institution (UN is too bloated, G8 is too exclusive) will only speed up when crisis comes (one example: global allied forces will form in a very short time when aliens invade, even if there was World War III at that time). I can only hope it is not too late then.

One way to consider things globally is imagine yourself look at the earth from outer space, what would you think about the matter? What really matters?
