Evidence of Globalization in SofiaBulgaria

Introduction

Evidence of Globalization in Sofia/Bulgaria Cars: The globalization leads to world-wide tax free trading. Now, to get a car from Germany to Bulgaria is almost free of charge, compared to the price of the car. Transportation is cheap and tariffs are low. But since Bulgaria is not a really rich country, people tend to buy cheap cars from all over Europe and drive them here. Cheap cars mean old ones, which are far from environmentally friendly and passenger safety. These vehicles pollute the air we breathe, influence the nature we live in and raise the level of accident danger on the road. Not only are the cars old, but they are too many as well. Now everyone has to have a car to be able to cope with the every day tasks, which we face today in the modern world. Public transportation in Sofia is not an option for everyone, plus in most cases it is extremely unreliable in terms of timetable, because of which many people wait sometimes for hours on the stations. Globalization leads to this, but it also leads to more accessible resources with which in the near future /lets hope/ there will be build an advanced transportation net, which hopefully will reduce the traffic on today?s streets. ...read more.

Middle

Everyone seemed to be happy or at least calm in his/hers reality. Now the first opening to the World, caused by the globalization, brought with itself the awareness of people. They realized how different their reality from the European one is, and inevitably most of them packed their cases and went in a passionate impulse to the West. Of course, many of them /the not so educated ones, as statistics says/ came back, because they didn’t manage to cope with the requirements and different standards, but many more talented and smart – stayed, which caused and keeps causing great impact on Bulgaria as a state. Of course, there is a good point of view as well. With no barriers, these smart people have the chance to develop their skills and get realized in what they strive for. Internet: Internet is one of the main powers of globalization. Nowadays people can study, buy different thing from a book to a super luxury car, browse for all sorts of information, sell different things, express him/herself via online based photography galleries, meet new people, find a job and do numerous sorts of thing just within a click of the mouse. Whether you are a university professor with a high speed Internet connection or a poor kid in Asia with access to an Internet café, you have the same basic access to research information. ...read more.

Conclusion

The criminals are getting more and more professional and organized in groups. It is enough just to look at the daily press or browse the Internet, to see how many high and low level crimes are taking place every day. Not including the pick-pockets and etcetera. It is a process in progress now, for young people to become criminals. In the virtual world of television, cinema and internet there is a constant demonstration of violence and criminal motive, which catch the attention of the youth and the wide public. And getting used and interested in criminal affairs are no less dangerous tendencies. If we take a look of the social characteristics of the disclosure and conviction of criminals, the prosecution and the court are orientated mainly to the poor, low-placed and weekly adapted criminal layer of the population. These criminals are doing the obvious, traditional crimes and are unable to protect themselves or pay the bail. The crime of the authority, the intellect and the wealth are main authors of physical, moral and material damage… and they are practically left untouched. The confidence of the ordinary people, in the state - lost. The penetration of the crime in authority in different levels, especially in our country, is acquiring scales which are seriously destabilizing the authority’s strictures and institutions… this is causing great damage on all people’s lives.
