MARCH 30, 2020
Since the start of year 2020, the most buzzword that has run shivers down the spine is COVID-19. Coronavirus has unveiled so many important things, which refer to either the traditional civilization tool or emergence of new civilization. This is the tool to gauge a new nation with effected and non-effected crowd. In my previous articles, I have already provided detail synopsis on the history of this virus. Today, I am going to relate the present day world order with the theory proposed by Samuel Huntington, which had already surpassed the clash of civilization on the grounds of religion. The religion, which formed the perspective and successfully has created the dynamic shift by creating divides, divergence, disagreements and road paved to unknown dimensions for any respective religion among the global society as a whole. Although, those nations who took the religion flag as queen symbolic to peace promotion have checkmate thesocietal conflicts.Therefore, war on religion chapter, hatred on the basis of religion, linguistic, caste, creed and color differences have rightly covered their respective journey from theoretical foundation to its practical implications is done and over.
In the present world, all the clashes have emerged the maximum utilization, efficiency, productivity and projection of hidden few economies. In the new world order, the clash of civilization is among the vital few or either hidden few. Now, what exactly is vital few? In order to understand this phenomenon lets recall the sprouting of information technology industry that germinated the seeds of artificial intelligence, cloud computing and digitization which all translated into the frequent and accessible usage of internet of things. We as a human are actually tamed, trained and facilitated according to an individual intellect, innate ability and circumstances.
Moreover, the 18th- 19th century was marked as the era of industrialization where there is rapid establishment of industries among the both developed and developing economies but the ones who benefit the most are the hidden few those who actually took every measure to well exploit the opportunities for their respective interests. In addition, as the economy stepped into 19th-20th century there was adaption of technology followed by the Great Depression and later the World War II and Cold war. Likewise, in the 21st century there is more advancement of technologies where digitization and Internet of Things (IoT) classified as the new phenomena.
The above-discussed chain of thoughts provided us much food of thought why such interface actually came to existence. The human creation wanted to promote peace and resolve the conflicts based on discussion and improved inter-regional and global connectivity. The leading super power has transmitted the technology into world, which led the key players to counter and protect them with more advancement in technology. It is fair to say that the war is among the hidden few. The one who is going to manage this global event in a more subtle manner will succeed.
Based on the Huntington theory we have observed the clash of civilizations based on religion. Although, in contemporary times the clash of civilizations is on bio-warfare and over the era of technology. Based on the blessings of technology, human-to-human connectivity is curtailed and there is rightful acquisition of social distancing ideology. The planet earth came into existence for human creation but it is certainly shut due to the virus. However, China being the representative of third world country will emerge as ray of sunshine to its strong allies based on strategic, geo-economics and defense point of view. This global event will come to end eventually and one of the hidden few would be crowned as the new supreme world order. The present global event and its consequences are beyond an ordinary human imagination. It is somehow alarming bell as off the political and economic dynamic changes after the 9/11 in US. Likewise, the COVID-19 originating from Wuhan, China will spread its effects globally.
As the representative of third world economy, we have to ponder upon various aspects to tactfully upfront all of the preventive and curative measures. Pakistan as a nation is not united and lacks the basic ingredient of awareness in the masses therefore every individual should play their respective part to fight this pandemic.As the Covid-19 although planted virus has become the global event.In order to conclude, I put forth some questions for the readers, which includes 1), Does the clash of civilizations on bio-weapons a new phenomenon? How the key players have devised their victory strategies? Does end of COVID-19 a myth or reality? Do you think will be persistence of long-term micro and macro-economic instability across the globe? Is the COVID-19 vacancies invented and how will be key supplier? Does COVID-19 a paradigm shift for new world order?
