The process of globalization has been a controversial topic so far, and it is considered as capitalist globalization, because globalization is driven by capital and takes transnational corporation that pursues benefits as the carrier. Although this topic is a bit old, globalization has always influenced people’s life. Today, anti-globalization is also a rash issue, and those who support this view believe that globalization has increased inequality between countries. This paper uses critical thinking and a fair perspective to analyze globalization, putting forward an idea that globalization will promote the process of democracy globally. Simultaneously, globalization provides new ideas for global collaboration and even the establishment of global democratic government. The methodology of this paper is theoretical analysis, basing on literature review. Obviously, globalization is a double-edged sword. It not only benefits wealthy countries, but also improves the strength of developing countries, but the negative effective of globalization needs to be paid attention to. Globalization is the only way for the development of human society and the engine that promotes the growth of the world economy, meaning that the historical trend is irreversible and will continue to move forward. Therefore, the approach used by developing countries should be to take measures to minimize its negative impact, rather than to resist it.
