“Many Zambians believe that GMOs cause resistance to antibiotics, thereby cutting immunity to diseases, and that they may lead to the emergence of new food toxins or to allergies in people with poor health. "For Zambia, most people in outlying areas are of an average health status," argued Dr

Mwananyanda Mbikusita-Lewanika, a Zambian scientist, "and if consumption [of GM grains] is high, then toxicity would equally increase." So not only would Zambians be subjected to harmful substances, their diets could also be altered drastically. These Genetically Modified substances could also latch on to other crops and contaminate those crop varieties destroying Zambia natural crops and forcing them to stay dependent on outside sources. Given this review of the literature on globalization, the definition which resonates is that “globalization is an integration of international economic markets in search of cheap labor and resources to supply a capitalistic economy to the detriment of weaker nations. It would appear that globalization has one objective, and that is to subjugate or indoctrinate every culture it comes into contact with or on a larger scale; every culture in the world. And it will only cease to do so when there is no more diversity in this globe. Globalization has no regard for human life or welfare. It seeks to empower the already powerful and create more wealth for the already wealthy. Globalization feeds capitalism and they both thrives off of poverty and human labor. There must be people on the bottom of the “food chain” for it to work out properly. How many countless other countries besides Zambia would be economically self-sufficient and thriving today had not the British government interferred. It is my believe that globalization is the new form of imperialism and colonization. Only today, instead of governments run by despots and military regimes in control, we have nation-less, and soul-less multinational corporation. A much more dangerous game of manipulation because it much harder to identify the real enemy to one culture and way of life.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
