    Well, that would be bad enough... The reality is likely to be much worse.

    Ya, "they would never take a picture of your naked body to board an airplane." (to paraphrase what I was told when I posted about the purchase orders for the naked body scanners that happened 6 months prior to the underwear bomber that was the justification for the installation of the machines.)

    Never say never.

We have went from a goal of including everyone and everybody as Americans to segregating us once more into groups. Instead of uniting one and all, we are once again dividing.
    The problem is, the liberals, and this is primarily a problem that originated from the left, decided that it's not important what you are now, it's where you came from or what the color of your skin is or what protected class you are a part of that really matters. African-Americans is just a code-word for being black, even if your ancestors never came from Africa, but if you're a white guy that grew up in South Africa, you can't be an African-American because you're white, even though you have even more claim to the word than some black guy whose family has been in Detroit for generations. To be honest, I'm surprised it hasn't gone farther than it has. Why not gay-Americans and female-Americans? I'm sure that's coming soon.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    If a country does not consent, then they will be brought into the system by conquest.
    I think that post most clearly states what "Globalization" is about. It is about the status quo of big money, banks, corporations, and those that already have gaining control of new profit centers that may or may not be a positive impact on the Natrions affected. It might provide jobs and improved standards of livings in impoverished countries, temporarily and then to the next impoverished country because it is always about profit. If it does any good, it is incidental, not planned.

    In a way every swinging Tom, Dick and Harriet that live in the United States are African Americans. Remember Lucy, the oldest humanoid skeleton found in Africa. The scientist and archeologist tell us the human race originated in Africa and from Africa migrated to the 4 corners of the globe. So if science is to be believed, we here are all African-American. Accordingly all who live in Europe are African-European, in Asia, African-Asian etc.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    All that is left is the middle east and Africa, and the aim seems to be to bring these regions into a world system through conquest...

    Then there's already a system for a world currency, the SDR is a de facto world currency... Though there have been other proposals like a petrodollar.

    The UN (league of nations) was built with the intention of being a world system of government from its inception.

    It really seems, the way things are going that we will be brought into a world war that will be so devastating that the people will cry out for anything to be done to ensure that it never happens again... And that's how people will beg for the last Steps towards a global system.
    Hmmmm. Sounds like a conspiracy theory to me.

    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Re: globalization

    As usual, we have to be clear as to what we are talking about.

    Should you be free to travel where you want, work where and for whomever you wish, trade with whoever you wll, marry whoever agrees to marry you, etc, etc - assuming that your actions do not hurt innocent third parties - anywhere in the world? Yes. Absolutely.

    And 90% of the screams against "globalisation" is nothing but the knee-jerk reaction of the entrenched local plutocrats and brainwashed collectivist zombies against the ongoing empowerment of the individual.

    But. There are also the remaining 10%.

    Globalization is not happing in a legal or institutional vacuum. If, for example, a poor country with an authoritarian government becomes "open" out of sudden, and embark on a state-capitalist adventure, it may mean a lot of (comparatively speaking) good things, but it also could mean forcing all the local resources into some monoculture that is profitable right now, enrichment of the elites, and disastrous consequences for most, some year later. We have to pay attention. Case by case. There's no downside to "globalization" erasing barriers between USA, Denmark, Switzerland, Japan, New Zealand and Chile. But most countries in the world, regrettably, are not like Switzerland or New Zealand.

    That's a point I've made before and boy does it piss off the liberals.

    Well, there was an older one found recently. Just a bit older and also Rift Valley iirc. I forget the name.

    Anyway, when I tell people that settling in Kenya is going home people look at me weird but it's still fun.
