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

Yes, but how does a bunch of Westerners with enough money for an internet connection discussing the world balance just one sweatshop, for example?

They are both results of the same global human impulse to communicate, connect.

If it were just a human impulse... But different policies by various elites have created one particular form of globalisation, which doesn't have to be the only form possible. (BTW, the 'anti-globalisation movement' prefers to call itself Altermondialist - that name expresses that it doesn't really want to crawl back into nation states, it wants a different kind of globalisation.)

*Lunatic*, n.
One whose delusions are out of fashion.
