Globalization Perspective

I think globalization in itself is not bad or good; it is just a fact of life in an increasingly interconnected world.

What IS worth protesting is the fact that the organizations that govern international trade aren’t sufficiently democratic or transparent in their operations. The sovereignty of democratic people should never be usurped by a trade agreement.

Trade agreements so far have successfully globalized corporate rights, but not the rights of the members of the communities effected by the agreements.

The United State’s biggest export should be human rights and sustainability.
