Some Quotes as food for thought
Let's discuss the world. To answer the question, "is globalisation possible without God", the simple answer is "yes". Globalisation is after all
itself a code word, a mask, for not using the C-word, capitalism. Globalisation is basically the latest phase of expanding capitalism. This not
something which is neutral, this is a capitalism that has its rules: it has its economic rules, it has its political rules, it has its cultural rules
and it has its military rules. It is a system. At the heart of this system is the United States of America, the world's only existing empire today.
The first time in the history of humanity that you have just had a single empire, so dominant, whose military budget is higher than the military
budgets of the next 15 countries put together, and whose military-industrial complex itself is the eleventh largest economic entity in the world. This
is the reality we live in, and this is the reality which confronts us in different ways. Tariq Ali, 10th Globalisation lecture, VRPO.
Resistance is feasible even for those who are not heroes by nature, and it is an obligation, I believe, for those who fear the consequences and detest
the reality of the attempt to impose American hegemony. Noam Chomsky, In American Power and the New Mandarins (1969)
The poor complain; they always do, But that's just idle chatter. Our system brings rewards to all, At least to all who matter. Poem by a Canadian
economist (Gerald Helleiner)
So what to do about this NAU? The American Empire so to speak, is growing? What are the consequences economically? Culturally? and Politically?
All questions that will be buzzing through our heads over the next few decades, right? The implementation of this would take awhile, so there is
time to stop this if necessary. Again is it necessary? Would the joining of two nations shedding its borders to form a new national entity be that
bad? Depends on those who be in power, the ones really behind the red curtain, shifting the stage around to "OH" and "AWE" us into drones.
Would this at all benefit everyone?
My personal belief in the matter of state and government, is that they must changed to work in this new era of mankind. But the way the must work
is always the fickle problem that every human has yet to figure out. What form of governing is truly appropriate? Democracy? Republic?
How do we counter such a power that would arise? to openly rebel would split the nation(s) divide into large camps. Internal differences in each
camp would break them apart. Honestly in the history of man when has a revolution been carried out when all were equally appeased? AS FAR as I know
A time of strife is upon us, In world where information is constantly being sent and received on a scale never before seen by man. We have seen how
revolutionaries have arisen in Egypt, Tunisia, and Libya. While the rest of the middle east is aflame with rebel spirit. Let us network, let us
take up arms, and defend one another against tyranny, in Unity there is strength! There are many paths before us, which one will you take?
