Billothewisp is going to have a rant (or occasional series of rants) about Globalisation. This is the first.
Today I am just setting the stage with an outline of this wrecking ball of an idealogy.
I promise to interperse this stuff with some more digestable (or at least drinkable) posting or I, like you, will probably have a haemorrhage.
On a personal level, we all hold self reliance and self sufficiency in high esteem. But on a national level, these same attributes are villified and undermined.
Globalisation dictates that a national self reliance is regarded as something to be aborred and Free Trade (which is anything but) should fill the gap.
Nationally all our political parties are beholden to the great god of Globalisation. They appear oblivious to the damage and distress it causes to many societies, not just our own.
There is opposition to globalisation but most of the anti-globalisation movement is firmly entrenched on the more lunatic fringes of the left.
Billothewisp does not think firebombing MacDonald's is going to solve anything. Neither does he think that the average member of the Global Justice Movement has so much as a clue as to what is really going on.
Globalisation is a semi-random methodology that entrenches vested interest. The Great Good and Extremely Well Fed get ever richer, while the rest of us become ever more serf like in our position.
Globalisation encourages many of the woes we see in the world today.

To keep these posts to sensible lengths I will keep to one issue/example per post.
The next post will be Skilled Worker Theft.
There. I have said it. Now I feel better. Pass the cider.
