re: on Globalization (Christopher Jones, France (John Eipper, USA, 01/26/07 10:52 am)

Christopher Jones responds to Istvan Simon's post of 25 January:

Istvan's belief in the benefits of globalization
before he has seen his first penny in profit is
an affirmation worthy of a "true believer." But
he is right in one aspect, globalization is not
"purely" an Anglo-American phenomenon--in the
West, it is a Jewish phenomenon. Jews were and
still are "quintessential" global players--just
think of the Rothchilds playing both sides of the
channel. Today their names can be found in
finance, and the media. In Asia, the great
global players were the Chinese, so similar in
some ways to Jews. Where Istvan is wrong, however,
is when he states that "Christopher Jones can do
nothing about it," which gives the impression
that somehow I am isolated in my opinions. For
Istvan's information, there is an
antiglobalization group called ATTAC, anti
globalization Jean-Marie Le Pen is scoring in
official polls in two digits and on the left,
Jos Bov is set to announce his candidacy for
the French presidential elections next month. So I am not lonely.

JE comments: This is a historic moment: I have just posted my first-ever
editorial submission from Christopher Jones! And now I have the honor of
attaching a modest comment: as Christopher Jones points out, opposition to the
de-humanizing and homogenizing forces of globalization certainly exists,
but can those opposed actually make a difference? Istvan Simon argues that
they cannot. I am not so sure. We seem to be at the threshold of an
anti-globalization backlash in Latin America, for example. Unfettered
neo-liberalism has gone out of style for many. Will the world follow the
example of Mexico's Fox/Calderon or of Venezuela's Chavez? The next few
years should prove very informative.
