Terrorism, a brainchild of contemporary globalization:
The biggest dilemma of today’s world is simply terrorism because it has challenged or severely provoked the most understood factor of this world that was, ‘balance of power’. The powerful believed in balance of power but the terrorists turned it into ‘balance of terror’. Terrorism fights a-symmetrically and does not care how powerful the other side is. We can now safely conclude the argument by referring contemporary globalization as not only the cause of conflicts and terrorism in the world, but also the medium through which the terrorists are astoundingly combating with the powerful societies and institutions of this world.

In conclusion, it can be inferred that contemporary globalization has contributed much to escalate the political conflict on this planet but it cannot be completely assumed that only contemporary globalization is responsible for all the political conflicts existing in this world. This essay first discussed the key aspects of the evolution of archaic and contemporary globalization. Then it discussed the factors that played a significant role in honing major political conflicts and how all of those factors have converged in the most popular form of all political conflict today, terrorism.
