Badiuzzaman Said Nursi had always looked at the world as one component glorifying the one creator and testifying to His greatness. The universality he believed in, came into contradiction with the universality that results from globalization as it is generally understood and illustrated. People of economically less auspicious countries become themselves agents of globalization in their own places. This is why the effects of globalization are more harmful than those of colonialism. Globalization recruits its soldiers from among people it invades and expands to swallow the remnants of their culture and selfesteem by making them follow the model of those who are more powerful and who possess more.
