Former British PM Gordon Brown: Globalisation doomed?

Just came across this little piece from the Tele: World on course for next crisis
Seems the former British PM being touted to replace DSK at the IMF (too many acronyms, ahhhh!) thinks that

"But if the world continues on its current path, the historians of the future will say that the great financial collapse of three years ago was simply the trailer for a succession of avoidable crises that eroded popular consent for globalisation itself.

"Those who believe that the world has learned from the mistakes that led to the crash are mistaken."

Could this be true?! Oh happy day! Wait, this is a trick! Or is it?
Could it be that this fascistic/socialistic/communistic/sado-masochistic international finance cabal vying for control of the world through globalization of everything and everyone have seen enough evidence of their own incompetence to now come out and admit that their experiments have been abject failures (EU, Euro, IMF, WB, NAFTA, GATT, blah, blah, blah)?

We can only hope.

And we can only hope they were wrong.

Yayyy? Clap clap?

Is common sense gaining a foothold ?

undoubtedly Gordon has not been
invested with the knowledge of the
next chain of events or either:
he's lying

I would wager the latter

"...a succession of avoidable crises that eroded popular consent for globalisation itself"? When the hell did they think they had (or, for that matter, needed) popular consent? They've been forcing this malevolent s*** down our throats for decades, and they think we LIKE it? We're ready to mass together and murder them in their very footsteps, and they think this is concurrence? This is surreal....

Wow, thanks for that!

And you're right, seeing as how the disconnect between public and politician is just astronomical, when something like NAFTA gets discussed (and the discussion hijacked by paid, eloquent goons) and then passed, I don't recall voting for it or agreeing to it personally. I didn't benefit from it at all. In fact I know that millions have been the victims of a globalized free trade where capitalist soul-sucking international corporations chase slave wages around the planet and then spend their profits in advocating this free trade where their third-world slave labourers are inhumanely subjugated to feed massive profit margins. The value of these imports is relatively small in export/import and all the value (slave-ings) is added once that product is in a western store. To the benefit of none but the most elite of the scum-sucking, bottom-feeding inbred elite.
Who WOULD agree to this? Of course its crammed down our throats, its just now the incentives (bribes) that kept the public complacent are now being withdrawn, and quite fast.
I think this complacency is going to be replaced very quickly in succession by awakening and then intense, collective understanding and then anger. Much like you, friend. God help us in all of this! Buddha, Zues and Thor too if it'll help, anything that will change our course!
