    The text is designed to explicate the logic of globalization at various levels, in distinction from other forms of presumed building of global systems. The argument is presented to show that the latter is a building of autocratic empire on the basis of some national or theocratic basis. This type of global reach is not designed to involve the populations, whether they are local-national or subjected to the edicts of such autocratic/theocratic domination. Modern Western globalization is based on a unique ontology – nature is a composite of material parts – and on mathematical metaphysics – all material events can be constructed in accordance with calculations and thus transformed to serve human needs everywhere. In this sense, this globalization is regarded as a progress for human benefit. In contemporary epoch, there is a confrontation between the autocratic/theocratic structures and the modern Western globalization. Lithuania being in the “middle” between them, is in a position to offer an alternative culture which is both ecologically sound and ethically responsible. Thus the preservation of Lithuanian culture is significant for the preservation of all life.

    The success of health policy and the healthcare sector is increasingly measured in terms of the dynamics and changes in public trust in the healthcare system, the quality of services provided by healthcare facilities matching people’s expectations, and the fulfilment of patient needs. In order to ensure the required efficiency of public services and to provide better-quality and more accessible healthcare services that match the expectations of the population, it is necessary that the recipients of these services (patients) themselves are actively engaged in improvement processes. Therefore, increasing importance and value is placed on the engagement of the patient in the process of improving healthcare services as an active and informed participant of the healthcare system.

    The employment relationship is the most sensitive public relationship that exists between those who perform work (employees) and those who create jobs (employers). Globalization and new technologies, economic crises, the COVID-19 pandemic, wars (such as in Syria, Ukraine, etc.), the expansion of the World Trade Organization, and other reasons point to the need for change and adaptation to new conditions, including employment relations. The changed relationship between labor and capital has brought the parties’ interests even closer, and has opened up the need for closer cooperation. Law and legal regulation are inevitable for the monitoring of such changes, and require a quick response. Flexicurity is one of the values that is constantly under dispute by lawmakers. However, while adopting labor laws, lawmakers are under pressure from the confrontation between the interests of state, employees and employers; thus, it is extremely difficult to drive innovation in the regulation of employment relations. Even if some amendments are made to labor laws, the subjects of employment relations often are unprepared, untrained and (or) unable to take advantage of such amendments. There is a noticeable trend towards reducing the international labor standards developed by the International Labor Organization (ILO and narrowing the scope of the regulation of issues, such as by excluding material or disciplinary liability), while at the same time much more attention is paid to the quality of the regulation of labor relations.614 The most frequently cited reason for the ILO’s regulatory suspension is the failure to reach a consensus among contracting parties and growing economic pressures.
