Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
That's what I meant posing the questions about these abstract terms like liberty and democracy that go along  with the praise of Globalization. At least for me it is obvious that only few people benefit from the process and they are the richest men. Even in the developed countries the majority is dependent on mortgages, credit card debt, high medical cost,etc.
Like Mill has observed 150 years ago the population leaves in poverty due to the capitalist machine.
And it seems we have not eradicated these problems
since he mentioned them. That questions the 150 years of our precios progress...
