Zhang, Y. (2016). Deglobalization, Discrimination, and Openness. EUReporter. 2016-12-20.
“China of 1,500 years ago, was in Tang Dynasty and that era was the most prosperous one as the largest economic and civilization contributor to the world. Openness to the world, variety embracing, and collaboration were default values, similar to what the USA had done in the past 300 years and EU to agree to cherish at their setup. Discrimination was heavily dismissed in such an institution. Countries by then with China in trade relationship were well-treated, not only as friends, partners, but also as family members, in order to honorarily seek for prosperity together and fight evil thoughts together. However, in China’s Qing dynasty back to 300 years ago, anti-globalization and protectionism dominated and it bloodily dragged the wealthy dragon back to a nothing and as a nobody. People there were extremely poor without status and identity, country was robbed badly without dignity. The story from our shared history is cruel and true. It does clearly mirror and accurately predict! If it will be as it had been on the function of the history, the only variables for us to consider is the time and mindset…. so, what will it be if deglobalization? If it is clear to us, then the question from such should be how shall we together take another serious thought to revolute our value, mind, behaviour to be more responsible and moral, and how to create a virtuous path for the best of us in the future?
“The consequences are here. The transition just started!”
