    Re: Globalisation vs Localisation

    Eh... if the question were Globalism vs. Nationalism... considering the political state of the planet, I'd go with Nationalism as the first priority.

    As much as some may dream of a Star Trekky Utopian One World Order, the simple fact is that the world remains a collection of tribal societies with each looking out for it's own interests be they political, economic, or whatever.

    And that's really no different than the way most of us live our daily lives, is it? Family and friends first, community second, etc.

    Of course that means it's hard to explain the rationale that led our politicians to pass laws that left our citizens without jobs... Oh! That's right! Campaign contributions... I guess getting re-elected is more important than those whiny citizens they're supposed to represent, huh?

    I was thinking more about political localization and globalization, not technical. That is, politics. The power to conduct your life as you consider right - that's liberty; not some fatass bureaucrat in Brussels, Moscow or Washington deciding which hand people should wipe their ass with.

    What difference does how close you live to the seat of government have to do with "the power to conduct your life as you consider right"? What's to stop a corrupt local government from trying to take away rights? What's to entice an honest global government from doing the same? It's the honesty of the organization, not its location, that makes all the difference.

    And as I said, local and global are becoming the same thing. We are all becoming interdependent. Segmenting political structure, and ignoring the reality of economics, trade, flow of information, and culture... that's refusing to keep up with the modern world.

    You know, if you meet everyday your managers and legislators on the street, it's easier to tackle the problems than delegating the right to some guy 2000 miles away to decide your life (with s/he not knowing if you ever exist). It's the "small town" type of relations.

    Trading and following the same orders are two different things. Otherwise we forge a World Constitution and we are all fine and dandy - all people equal.

    Re: Globalisation vs Localisation

    Globalization is a cancer. The benefits it proposes are overshadowed by all the problems it creates, and there is no earnestness to bring material equity to the world though it. It is just a vehicle for a select few to acquire more capital and accumulate obscene profits.

    These institutions should be challenged and destroyed if necessary. Transnational capitalism is decaying infrastructure all around the world by taking public money and transferring it to private coffers. Our governments are complicit in this.

    We are headed for a deadly showdown right now, either when millions of people start starving to death or when government oversteps its powers granted by the people. Everyone should be prepared.

    Re: Globalisation vs Localisation

    I like governments working together to promote economic integration. Globalization has pulled millions of people out of poverty, and it has treated developed nations pretty well too.

    However, I support keeping most decisions on as local a level as practically possible. Lower levels of government tend to be more responsive to their people's needs as they have to represent a narrower set of interests.

    But then a government can never tackle a problem larger than "should we add a stop light over on Sycamore Street?" But you omit one big issue. NO government should ever "decide your life", local or otherwise. That's what happens in a country where women are not full citizens, or where homosexuals are put to death, or in countries run by a military dictatorship. None of that is a function of the size of government. It has to do with whether or not that government has legal bounds put upon it.
