ABSTRACT
It is a fact that none of the world orders throughout history have satisfied the necessary conditions for existence - to satisfy all the participating countries. Still, it seems that none of the world orders caused controversy and opposite opinions except globalization. Some consider globalization to be a new, contemporary phase of human society development while to others it represents nothing but a great myth. Some consider it to be an objective and spontaneous planetary process, others see it as the domination of developed countries, a process which brings with it a number of divisions and a deeper economic and social gap between parts of the world. For the winners of globalization, it represents the advancement of civilization and a source of the new boon for mankind, but for the losers it is nothing but a destructive power. Both parties are right: globalization provided a new quality dimension of development but at the same time the developing possibilities are not equally allocated and available to all.
