Globalization and the Paradox of Diversity
The viability of human society is negatively affected when diversity is reduced. From a philosophical or political standpoint, the absence of diverse views pushes perspectives into narrow confines. While this may suit the desires of the majority population, human existence is conducted in a dynamic environment. Sometimes the minority viewpoints end

The end:
..... rights violations in corporations with global foci. Corporations held accountable by the labor they thrive on are unlikely to “play nice” in one country while they commit brutal acts of corporate subjugation in other countries. "At the end of the day corporations want to turn a profit" (Page 368). Perhaps someday they will understand how to maximize social justice through the support of diversity along with their economic objectives. It is only then that globalization, from a socioeconomic standpoint, will be mutually beneficial for corporations as well as society.
