Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I find this all a little pessimistic. Isn't this blog an example of 'globalisation' at its best?

Globalisation is neutral. Unfortunately you can't separate 'good' globalisation (more immigration, communication, the forging of international protest, the broadening of horizons, more awareness of global catastrophy) from 'bad' globalisation (international crime networks, capital flight and speculation, rush to the bottom of labour/ environmental standards). They are both results of the same global human impulse to communicate, connect.

The only answer ultimately is multilateral government and international co-operation, and that's why we're on this blog.
