Currently, everything is in sight and the light of day, without borders or barriers to intercommunication and information globalization.
The information dominates and penetrates everything. It introduces into our homes without committing violation of domicile or burglary; at most, it may affect our privacy.
Faced with this undeniable reality, it is useless to try to put "the tide". Everything that happens on our planet is known in real time, instantly, simultaneously and immediately, as if it were a public good or freely available to serve everyone. This allows us to dispel doubts about the life of the people and the policy of their rulers.
That wonderful power of communication achieved in the field of social and political experiences, which in science is achieved thanks to laboratory tests that can be reproduced at will. We could say that global communication is the great laboratory that lets us know the favorable or adverse outcome of the applied systems outside our borders. In a word, as well as in international trade they are rejected or not dangerous or damaged goods are imported; in the field of knowledge, it should not be accepted, internally, as an example or role model, which proved negative and harmful in other places or countries.
Indeed, the information internally and, especially, international, allows us to know and see how governments and parties of undeniable democratic tradition but in a different political ideology, are forced, in exceptional or emergency circumstances, take radically opposed to measures initially defended. So with the much-maligned "tax amnesty" or swings on the rise or fall of taxes, the retirement age or duration of the workday.
In view of the above, it should be recalled that, as Ortega y Gasset said "only from shared information, judgment about things makes possible." David Hume recognized that "the important thing is not the nation of which we are part, but that humanity to which we belong." And Diderot welcoming the thought of Hume, saying "I like you, a citizen of the great city of the world."
Thanks to the information globalization, no one can be fooled, nor plead ignorance or lack of knowledge of how other countries are governed and what systems produce the best and most favorable results, both personally and collectively.
When Marshall McLuhan coined the famous phrase of the world "global village" and of humanity as "global tribe" in the information society yet it discovered the Internet or social networks had not. Therefore, at present, there is evidence that, with the increase in social media, there has been considerable progress in the universal political consciousness, preventing the concealment of inequality and injustice.
Also, the information globalization has served to mobilize the consciences before the horror and terror that grips the human spirit when his spirit rooted in intolerance and all kinds of ethnic, political, racial and religious fanaticism.
Ignore the seriousness of these events and stay in the "comfort learned ignorance", it is to contribute, through inaction and passivity, to the decline and fall of mankind.
