To What Extent Should Contemporary Society Respond to the Legacies of Historical Globalization?

To what extent should contemporary society respond to the legacies of historical globalization? To the extent of saying sorry and get over it, it’s in the past: what is done and we can’t take it back. Do people today really have to respond because of the wrongs our ancestors did? Well yea, but not to the extent of handing out money, our hard earn cash. And to the extent of what does history teaches us and the lessons learned with complete objectivity? Yes I understand that the apologies is not being said until now, it’s kind of pathetic…

What I’m trying to say here is that we as people learned from our mistakes and we learn a lesson of what to do and making sure that it doesn’t happen again, and plus there is no more land to take over. Let’s go back a little and answer my point of the question Do people today really have to respond because of the wrongs our ancestors did? Like I said before, yes we should, but not to the extent of handing out money to people. I get that we respond to the wronging of our ancestors and the world is fine and dandy except a few disagreements.

It’s just that why didn’t we do it before? Was it that our stubbornness got in the way, was it because we didn’t think that it would come back a bite us in the butt one day… I don’t know the reason. Oh well, we learned our mistakes and never doing it again. Now let’s move on this little rant to the next question: what does history teaches us and the lessons learned with complete objectivity? The idea of learning from the past so that mistakes are not repeated. But it should be remembered that each situation is different, no matter what it is.

I’m not quite sure how to answer this but when we discuss these topics we think different then what is in the book but it won’t change the past. Yes we are like why did they do this, why didn’t they do it this way; I guess they thought that the way they are doing things are the only thing to go by. And it’s not; I guess we finally realize that it was wrong and never doing it again. The third and last paragraph of this rant: why is it taking so long to apologize for the wrongs that our ancestors did or might have done?

I’m not quite sure how to answer this one. Maybe we didn’t realize what we were doing was wrong or was it because of pride and power that these people had… I don’t know. Here is one person’s opinion of why we haven’t apologized before now: “The context is the insufficiency of justice seeking in the world, and the unhealthy, sometimes long-smouldering residue left behind by generations that have ignored great wrongs or failed to address them properly.

Because of this insufficiency, the passage of time, and the inaccessibility of more conventional means for righting these wrongs, societies may need to find unconventional solutions in a continuing quest for justice. ” (http://www. informaworld. com/smpp/content~db=all~content=a771404084) Well there you have it folks my awesome almost 2 minute rant of historical globalization and what my opinion on this whole thing. Ok this rant is a little confusing so let’s summarize. 1. Do people today really have to respond because of the wrongs our ancestors did?

Depends on the issue and how we respond to it. 2. What does history teaches us and the lessons learned with complete objectivity? Tell the truth and never concur other peoples land. 3. Why is it taking so long to apologize for the wrongs that our ancestors did or might have done? Because the issue was put to the side and ignored the great wrongs and failed to do the apologies. What I’m trying to say here is that we as people learned from our mistakes and we learn a lesson of what to do and making sure that it doesn’t happen again.
