You're more right than you know.
Globalization is destroying this planet. One of these days, they're going to cut right into the darkest part of the jungle, and carve right into Pandora's box, and make the Black Death look like a summer cold.

To oppose globalization is to promote a dramatic reversal in humanity's trends. Globalization can not be simply halted without major effects to our current systems, especially economic. Moving toward isolationism just is not realistic. The computer you're using right now is a product of globalization, so is your car and so is your 401k. If there were a severe shift toward isolationism, the economy would collapse.
