It took me a bit to recognise what OWG was, One World Government. So how does this relate to globalisation?
It is industry that has developed and promoted globalisation. Currently there are very few standard laws and regulations that dictate how business is conducted across the globe. The legal system managing this is based on many different local, national and cultural jurisdictions and processes. It is very messy. It is also full of loop holes, inconsistencies, contradictions and failings across the Planet.
Places like the Cayman Islands and others are tax and banking havens that hide and launder large amounts of wealth. Third world nations are exploited with their cheep labour and lack of environmental regulation. The international money markets is open to manipulation and effective profit without production due to these international inconsistencies that have emerged as part of the globalisation process.
The UN deceleration of human rights www.un.org... is one of the better documents produced by the UN, however it's implementation still has some way to go. A OWG will not be focused on minor local and cultural issues, but instead focus on how large organisations such as industry and government deal with these challenges.
So how OWG relates to globalisation is similar to how a city relates to its council, or how a country relates to its government, but just on a larger level dealing with larger issues.edit on 29-6-2011 by kwakakev because: added reply to Rockdisjoint
'the end justifies the means'.
Maybe you are the warm hearted type.
I propose you take in some refugees, in your own home, give up your job so they can have one and then devote your life to educating them on your cultural ways. If you are not prepared to do all of these things then you are full of hot air and enjoy hearing your own voice for your own pleasure.

What? you don't believe we would fight against foreign military invaders? surely you jest, Nah we have no culture,lifestyle or anything like do we? I really don't know what the hell take away food has to do with anything,do countries with "culture" not partake in eating food from other countries?
Of course we have a lifestyle- generally speaking we are laid back, we like to drink, we like to swear, watch the footy and cricket, have bbqs and hang out for our rostered days off.
We have an indigenous culture which we cant claim as ours.
My point with the food was, if [some] people here hate immigrants so much you would think you would have a problem with eating their food. To alot of the different nationalities here, food is a big part of their culture.
My point about how close Indonesia etc was, as global warming/climate change continues to happen, humans will be forced to migrate, just like we have always done.
There's how many of them? and how many of us?
This isnt going to happen tomorrow but there's nothing surer than earth changes and nothing surer than human migration. We are going to have to work something out before that time or we're here for the taking.
Attitudes towards refugees/ boat people will have to change, Im appalled at the lack of compassion a lot of Aussies have towards such people. ffs we all smile in the same language!
