From a political ideology perspective globalism refers to various patterns of meaning beyond the merely international. It is used by political scientists to describe attempts to understand all the interconnections of the modern world—and to highlight patterns that underlie them. But it is not just limited to the study of these topics. There are practical conclusions that result and are sought by some to be implemented. They seek to establish an economic order that makes the world work better and safer, at least in the eyes of the people that want to implement their own solutions. This means that their ideological worldview is seen as the best solution that must be enforced on others for the betterment of a new world order that benefits all mankind.

Globalism is not a new idea. One can find references to it going back to the origin of mankind when Nimrod sought to establish a one-world government at Babel. According to the Bible, God took notice and knew a one-world government was not in the best interests of mankind since they result in tyranny. So, he stopped their efforts by confusing mankind with different languages. As a result, the people were forced to go their separate ways and form smaller people groups and governments that eventually wound up as the type of national borders we see in the development of nation-states.

In spite of the negative views regarding nation states and being loyal to one's country today, the idea of the nation-state was God's. He established the nation-state to divide up political power so it does not fall globally into the hands of one man. The different nations seek their own best interest and find that they need to cooperate with other nations in order for their own nation to succeed with the sharing of resources and military concerns.
