Situational Assessment 2015
Jordan Greenhall

Great job building a narrative that outlines the complexities across the world. Global organizations such as the World Bank compels countries that are second and third world to use their resources to scramble out of their current condition which may be eco-unfriendly (i.e. clearcutting for farmland or damming waterways for water sustainability). Yet, those same countries decreased infant mortality and increase their daily wage.

Or the expanding world crisis when the threat of a red line that is not enforced forcing millions to escape inevitable genocide. Rather than engaging to the point of supporting countries within their own borders or in neighboring countries, observing countries watch refugees by the thousands risk their lives crossing waterways and deserts perishing along the rather than risk living within their own borders. And of course, as we clearly see in Europe, Australia, and the USA, refugees upset the balance of the countries creating additional domestic strife and conflict of ideas. What an interesting time that we need globalization yet we also require sovereignty for individual nations.

“A nation’s greatness is measured by how it treats its weakest members.”
