    Here we are discussing about the real ‘commodity’ of Nature—humanity, not its (humanity) by-products. We are talking about, what is right and good for the people, not what material good/benefit accrues, as a result of scientific achievements.
    Since the boundaries of nations have been charted out by the writ of the conquerors, or amalgamated forcefully. These forced amalgamation, can never produce a single homogenous society but in due course of time, their superficial cementing and forced quartering for centuries, under the same umbrella of adopted religions and environments, does churn out an admixture of ‘culture’, howsoever shallow it might be. In countries like Bhaarath, Egypt, Greece, Persia, many a rich societies flourished and synthesized into unique civilizations.
    These civilizations, which each of these great countries gave birth to, were in fact the amalgamation of different cultures. But to the chagrin of the historians, these great civilizations were demolished and vanished; either under their own burdens of over indulgence—the result of material progress and the consequent down gradation of values—or these could not bear the onslaught of foreign elements. Whatever symbolic semblances are left of these cultures—after withstanding the ill effects of these onslaughts—is due mainly to their building blocks, which were sourced from the very fundamentals, which are the sustenance cause of the universe. Their nourishment was the unshakable faith of the people in God. Though outwardly disseminated into many theological groups and societies, but into their faith, seeped one invisible thread of unity, which united them all under one umbrella of religion. Even though each nation supported different religions, still the fact remains that these religions, within the boundaries of each nation, fell under the shadow of one bigger element—its composite culture.
    Each nation traces its roots to the bygone civilizations. In the present times, there is hardly any nation in the world which can boast of one culture, one society and one religion. Civilizations, too, seem to have been swept off the surface of the earth, as not a single one flourishes, which could trace its lineage to the bygone ones, in any part of the world. Wherever some traces are left, these are being obliterated along with their bearers. The following is the present overview of the world, which is the repeat of an earlier version:
    Today western countries control more than 80percentage wealth of the world (2007). Almost the entire industrial base: its production and distribution is also in their control. With strong economic base, on the strength of scientific advancement in all fields, they rule the world in every sphere of life. Economically, militarily, and scientifically they not only rule the earth but the sky as well. They have the total monopoly over the material assets, backed by an efficient industrial base and a powerful war machine laced with the latest gadgetry. They have the power to destroy the world with the nuclear arsenal, many times over, just by the touch of a switch. The tragedy is, their war machinery and the lethal power are in the hands of those people, whose ethical base is shallow. Money power, backed by military power, has corrupted the lives of these people to such extent that where the meanings of values have lost their importance.
    In America, like its allies— the most powerful country in the world, pornography is being legally channeled through the e-media, obscene magazines, night clubs and fashion shows. It has now entered the daily routines of their lives. This would not have been a problem, if this moral turpitude had been restricted only to the upper strata of their society. But the sad fact is that, this base business—which they associate with obscene ‘culture’, as if there really is a culture which could be obscene for them—has entered the lives of common people in their countries. Just imagine the volume of damage being wrecked by the western society, in the venerable lives of the youth of the developing countries, as they are foolishly imitating the west in every manner. A society, where pornography has not only become a regular subject of study and officially entered in the curricula of their colleges /universities, but become the part of their so-called ‘culture’(Prof: Costance Penolli Santa Barbara Call. University), what type of values our youth would be imbibing is any sane mind’s nightmare?
