    Re: globalization

    Global society and bringing the whole world up to the social liberties and prosperity* of the first world? Global exploitation of the third world by the first? Not awesome.

    *Long, complex process that will take a lot of technological innovations. A sustainable first world Earth is likely filled with robots doing all of our menial labor.

    I actually agree to a point.

    I believe most Americans are spoiled and inconsiderate of anyone outside their social circles and I would be ok will a lowering of our standard of living if it meant less fortunate people on the planet could have a better standard of living. Most of us have more then we need now to have a comfortable living, at least my definition of a comfortable living. Going back to about 1940's-50's standard of living is adequate to me. All the rest is just having things to have them if you know what I mean. I think Ideally everyone across the globe should have a comfortable living and they probably could if we change our outlook on things. Instead of the "more for me" mind set that many have if they instead thought "ok I have everything I truly need, why don't I help out someone that doesn't", the world would be a much different and better place. But where our views may differ I believe that should be an individuals decision instead of any kind of government sanctioned action.

    I don't know. That just doesn't sound feasible to me. Is "going back" even possible? I don't think so.

    Re: globalization

    When people say "cultural integration," there are SOME cultures which are very resistant to any kind of change whatsoever and would resist violently.

    It is wrong that physical mobility is so restricted, but the hard truth is letting people into the country that have little chance of returning home is a little too much Statue of Liberty. Face it, living poor on the streets of a developing country is worse than doing so in a developed country. If a plane ticket (not completely out of the realm financially, perhaps with donations) could buy that... yeah, that doesn't work. So, we must have immigration law if we are not to become the receptacle of every street person that their government is willing to buy them a ticket. Now, let's calculate the cost of a street person. 1k? Gone, forever, welfare program called "Get your ass outta here" and they buy them a ticket wherever, no return. Like Castro, but a better chance of survival.
    You are correct about the problems/challenges of a freedom to travel and live anywhere. I don't think it will happen anytime soon, but I think it should be a long term goal.

    Your country is the world, your religion to do good kinda thing?

    Ecology is, by nature, a global issue. I believe that people should do what they enjoy. I expect our thinking regarding sustainability and the interconnectedness of the world to evolve, and I am active in promoting such.

    I don't have a religion, just a philosophy.

    Re: globalization

    Multi-culturalism is a misnomer or a fatally flawed goal. Inter-culturalism, like a melting pot, is where it's at. I think a comparison of Europe and the US, regarding immigrant cultures and assimilation, demonstrates this.

    Re: globalization

    my thoughts are that we should work to make globalization beneficial for all by exporting first world working conditions and pollution controls along with the jobs. I don't want rivers catching on fire in Ohio. I also don't want rivers catching on fire in China, or anywhere else.

    I feel that free trade should be conditional. adopt OSHA and reasonable pollution controls? you're our free trade partner. skirt the rules? we tariff the **** out of you.
