how do you all feel about globalization? I know this is a rather broad term but I am still intrested.
While there are many downsides and negatives I personally on the whole like and believe in globalization.
I really dont get the anti-globalization people (I am not saying we need to go 100% free trade and give the UN an army).

The UN should be disbanded, but global free trade would do more for the poor, and the poor countries, than anything else. Just look at what trade, free markets and commerce have done for the Western world.

Under the way globolization is occuring with the European Union becomming the European Sovient Socialist Republics I had to vote "that globization is a bad thing," only because I don't see it happening democratically. Despite my vote I'm very much for globolization if only the world was more of a central political spectrum, first we have to get the political marxists out of globolization. If globolization was so good rate now intergration with a capitalist market would have occured, but here in Canada I see socialists in control.

There is no way to get rid of Marxists. They are like purple loosestrife, a noxious invasive species that is impossible to eradicate. No matter how discredited their ideas are, they just counter with "real Marxism has never really been tried", or "it has never been done right", or "Stalin wasn't really a Marxist, he was a fascist".

As long as there is even one baby sitter, teacher, or parent out there telling children that failed ideas are still good, we will be plagued with Marxists.

I'm having second thoughts about globalization. Sure I like my $49 DVD player but companies don't care about countries. Of course the notion of country isn't what it used to be with everyone moving to each other's countries. On a relative scale we faired better under the old system. We are just creating new enemies now.

Since I have read the end of the story in the book of Revelations, I had to say it is a bad thing. The last time everyone was together in this world they did the whole tower of Babel thing and it just didn't fare well. Besides, the more 'globalized' this world gets, the less opportunity there is for dissent, and freedom becomes whatever the predominating political, economical, and social trend says it is. Not what I like.

I'm pretty happy with economic globalization, and hope it continues. I'm less optimistic about governmental or bureaucratic globalization. Case in points - the UN, the EU, and to a lesser extent, NATO.

I'm not sure. Globalization has led to the situation in China where we stand to create a foreign dependency on their production to maintain our own economy. Furthermore to the point, Kyoto is irrelevant in the face of Chinese economic growth, and globalization has a lot to do with the emergence of China. If things get worse environmentally, we can really blame our investment in the third world, and by proxy globalization.
