The article discusses the concept of globalization from different points of view, evolution, ideological support, limits, and possible alternatives. As methodology, the research is based on extensive literature revision. It is concluded that as long as the current pattern of capital accumulation, based on its parasitic character, persists, the process of globalization cannot reach its positive potential, but will contribute to deepen the gap between most countries and some powerful nations in fields of economics, science, technology, politics, and military defense. All this makes globalization an incomplete and asymmetric process.
