Worst and Best Global Citizens
At the end of 20th century, we received the new notion, known as globalization, which was used since then in different spheres not only by scientists but also by politicians and mass media means. Such concept conveys paradigm that includes understanding of ongoing world processes and epoch changes. Therefore, idea of globalization is a short description of complex practices combination, which essence lies in perception of the world being pressed in the time flow and space; hence, it makes all existent territorial borders to be rather conditional and transparent ones.
Thus, globalization is a historical process of world conversion into the unified system, which possesses unique characteristics. Hence, each country inside the globally connected world has its own place and can be considered as good or bad in terms of the global citizen issues. Each country, thus, is seen as the citizen of the entire global world-country. Therefore, having analyzed several countries and their rates, it was considered to admit Australia to be one of the best and Syria as one of the worst countries for living.Australia is claimed to be one of the best countries with the highest quality of life; hence, it received the highest rate in Better Life Index.
