What does the World Civilization stand for?

Today every human being of the globe is considered as global citizen. It is the good impact of globalization. But there is adverse impact of this globalisation because ‘the good are unable to create; they are always the beginning of the end.’ Dangerous affect of Coronavirus witnesses the evil of this globalisation. It pushes the world civilization into a serious crisis of existence. Unity of mankind appears to have ceased to exist.

According to Sigmund Freud (1925), ‘civilization is a process in the service of Eros, whose purpose it is to combine single human individuals, and after then families, then races, people and nations, into one great unity: the unity of mankind. It is undoubtedly united the globe in a Garland in spite of different differences of aggression. Aggression of power and aggression of authority emerge its ugly heads among the nations, and it is the cause of crisis of the world civilization. After two world wars, no education directs to the right path of a beautiful globe.

According to Freud, ‘But man's natural aggressive instinct, the hostility of each against all and of all against each other, opposes this programme of civilization’. Now, present world crisis turning to the World War-III is not limited to individual aggression, it is an aggression of nations. It reminds further the opinion of Freud, ‘This aggressive instinct is the derivative and the main representative of the death instinct which we have found alongside of Eros and which shares world-dominion with it. And now, the meaning of the evolution of civilization is no longer obscure to us. It is the representation between Eros and Death, between the instinct of life and the instinct of destruction, as it works itself out in the human species.’

Freud further opined, ‘This struggle is of what all life essentially consists, and the evolution of civilization may therefore be simply described as the struggle for life of the human species. It is this battle of the giants that our nursemaids try to soothe with their lullaby about heaven'.

This world crisis of humanity reminds ‘No house can be built of houses, but only of specially formed stones, no tree can grow from trees, but only from differentiated cells'. Killing of mass would never help to win ultimate goal of power  Today, there is strong need of the unity of mankind. Mankind is crying and globe is crying as well as world civilization. Vanity of scientific advancement is going to die and it is transforming into some ashes.
