Global village

Hello and welcome to all of you who are here...
Today i will not discuss any issue regarding terrorism or the wars between the nations but i will focus on the REAL GLOBAL VILLAGE. What it is.. who are its real beneficiaries and who are the looser in this new world order.
Well when Marshall McLuhan gives this term, it was actually associated with the advancement of technology and the fast flow of information from one corner of the world to the other. Here I didn't use the word FREE FLOW OF INFORMATION because if we add the word Free flow then it means that each and every country has equal rights of transmitting information. But we must understand that it is not the case, here the super powers and the developed countries have once again the upper hand. They are using information for their self interests.. and the developing countries are a victim of the economic super powers.. the developed countries do not show the positive image of the developing countries.
On the other hand if we take this term in the sense of economic issues that in the Global village each and every country must have equal opportunities of trade then this is also an invalid assumption. Because a Special package of economic robbers are also dominant here.
So the world is not a global village but a "Controlled village".
