    Re: globalization

    I believe in the globalization of human, civil, labor and environmental rights as embodied by the UN (an organization that mostly sucks):

    Whereas recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world...

    Now, Therefore THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY proclaims THIS UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS as a common standard of achievement for all peoples and all nations, to the end that every individual and every organ of society, keeping this Declaration constantly in mind, shall strive by teaching and education to promote respect for these rights and freedoms and by progressive measures, national and international, to secure their universal and effective recognition and observance, both among the peoples of Member States themselves and among the peoples of territories under their jurisdiction.
    The Universal Declaration of Human Rights

    Not a globalist meaning "one world government" but globalist meaning the above.

    Re: globalization

    I favor globalization in economics, but not religion/politics. I believe in the free trade of goods/services/information/ideas, but oppose any attempt at world government or UN law trumping our sovereignty, and of course any attempt to force a global religion like fundies claim is the future of Islam.

    I have nothing but contempt for the UN, the IMF, the World Bank, or any central bank (especially the Bank of England)

    Re: globalization

    I believe that globalization is not inherently evil, it is the execution of it that gives it its character. I fear it has become a modern form of imperialism with wealthier nations using it as an excuse for further exploitation of people and land for their own benefit.

    For example, I think the relation between China and American can be characterized this way. Americans have for many years enjoyed inexpensive imports from China that could not be produced so cheaply at home due to worker rights and environmental regulation. As a result the people of China still have too low a quality of life and the pollution problem looks to be turning into a crisis. The relation has had negative effects on America but I still would rather be here than there, and I don't know that the average Chinese person is all that happy with the way things have turned out.

    Democracy is good for ecology. When those directly affected by resource depletion and degradation have no voice in its authority, things get worse.

    Re: globalization

    I feel globalization will only continue to lower the US standard of living. Americans cannot compete with global labor costs and we will continue to see the earnings disparity that we have been seeing for the past 30 years since any real globalization of big business began. As long as we remain a consumer based economy in a global labor environment things will continue to go as they have been.

    I find the US standard of living unsustainable and I don't care - let it fall. What's important is global human rights. Some nationalist I am, ay?

    Re: globalization

    I would be more supportive of a globalized market if human rights were equally globalized. As it is now, businesses can profit from locating to countries with weak environemental laws and cheap labor because the people of those countries do not have the rights necessary to protect their own interests.

    I'm in favor of cultural exchange and I think we are regularly benefitting from better methods of communication and despite many problems, international understanding is improving overall.

    I would like to see a time when national borders no longer prevent individuals from visting or living anywhere they want, like we are free to do within the USA.

    I am not anti-UN or international law, and I support using international law to prevent or punish serious war crimes and human rights abuses as long as it is democratic and fair. I am worried about the possibility that nations that don't respect human rights might have influence on international law and our own laws. (for example the consideration of applying other nation's censorship standards to the internet globally.)

    Within? A US passport is a ticket to anywhere you want, buy a visa at the door and jump a couple hoops to stay as long as you like. It's near-instant world mobility (with double luggage allowance).


    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.
