Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Globalization is unstoppable.

What do abstract terms like liberty, world democracy and global progress mean when men are starving, children at 10 are fighting, the clean water is scarce, and crime is frightening us all?

They certainly do not mean much to the common people like you and me,who still possess a sense of human compassion for the problems of the poor and the starving. But those abstract terms definetely do sound good when they come out of the mouth of the strong political leaders, who are trying to convince everybody that globalization necessarily is a positive thing, when one of its major failures is that it has widened the gap between the rich and the poor. But you explained those things better than me:)
