Abstract
Over the last few decades, researches have demonstrated a trend in how businesses have become more globalized and transformed our lives. Just how much of this deviations remain a matter of controversy. Several studies from the industrial revolution to modern days explain the trending cause of globalization and how it is impacting humans to live longer and move away from that nation state. Studies have shown that new technologies are re-shaping our society by reducing barriers to trade and invest in a much bigger scale. Furthermore, developed and emerging countries seek out customer’s worldwide causing globalization and competition to increase while simoustanly decreasing labor costs. The purpose of this paper is to understand FM2030 provocative visions of the future and the emerging radicalism of immortality and globalization. The number of people walking around today has several synthetic body parts that can be easily replaced and crafted to expand life expectancy. He anticipates that technological progress will enable humans to live longer and eventually become “transhuman” which will eliminate the necessity of paid labor. FM2030 also foresaw a wired world which will be driven by telecommuting while increasing globalization towards employment, communication and infrastructure. The reader will be able to distinguish the differences between nation state and globalization.

He describes that modern technology has reduced the nation state obsolete through political organization and for that nation state is no longer able to protect the lives of its members and their way of life.
