What is so bad about globalism?
Globalism is the concept of making the world more connected by technology, politics, financial systems, etc. Some paranoids rant and rave about a North American Union just to push their own agenda, but there will be no North American Union. I think of anti-globalists as isolationists, nativists, and ultra-nationalists who need to get out of the Dark Ages and start thinking like 21st Century human beings.

the only time I balk at globalism is when the World Court gets brought in, we have had US Supreme Court Justices site World Court decisions to justify votes on US Constitutional law. I do not like global justice, we will get raped.

Let me ask you a question. What is so bad about wanting to be an isolationist? People have divided themselves for several reasons. There's nothing wrong with not wanting to buy into the big picture. Furthermore, what makes your rant about globalism any more superior to the rants of the anti-globalists?

I think you're right. Globalism is a good thing, and those who object to it do so for all the wrong reasons. Labor unions in America that want to work less and be paid more object to globalism because it lets their employers send jobs off to people who will actually do them without raping the company. Then there are... More

Globalism is the concept of making the power structures more connected and far reaching. Similar to what you said only far more accurate. As fewer individuals exercise power over larger populations and land masses the rights of the individuals in that area will always be further restricted. This is common sense and an... More
