"globalization"
    #1539279 - 05/11/03 05:26 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

So how is it that such a positive-sounding word was co-opted to sound like something so terrible? Who living on this planet isn't in favor of a global community?

I'm in total favor of a global community......

The problem is the current direction of "globalization" scares me stiff because of the current "leaders" attempting to dictate it.

Who? Why those smart enough to realize that what's right or desired by some may not be right or desired by all.

"One man's joy makes another man weep.
Nothing you can do is ever gonna change it.
One man's saint is another man's fool,
one man's hot is another man's cool."

"Don't you know what means the earth to some or only one
Can mean just nothing, nothing, nothing to another."

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers

I do not think we are ready for "globalization" yet. We need to have the ability to use self-less logic before any such system could exist without destroying the liberty and freedoms of most cultures and peoples.

Globalization can be a dream..or a nightmare.
