What is the point of globalization and foreign policy if we do not take care of our own people?


It seems that the differeneces in culture, governments and ambitions are still too far apart for globalization to really make a difference. As a nation, should we continue to stretch our own resources thin to protect the interests of big business? Should we continue to discard our own pride as a nation while we grow third world cities within our own borders? I am by no means suggesting that more social programs are the answer... What I am suggesting is a government that provides opportunity for people to develop themselves into something more than they are.

    I agree, DS. The gov't doesn't seem to care because they're distracted. Their real bosses have an agenda that calls for the dismantling of America. The Supreme Court has already declared that Corporations are "people."

    The easing of restrictions on working globally has benefitted me as an individual, but successive British governments encouraged importation of cheap, largely low quality, labour from what were then developing countries thus harming the people.

    The terms "protectionism and isolationism" are globalist/marxist invented terms to margianalize those who would put America first.The globalists smeered the America First movement by calling them "isolationists" for opposing American entry into WW2.

    We may have more available to people if those people have money, but we do not take care of our own people. I use the jobless rate, homeless rate, and many other factors of poverty to say this. Family values??? what are those??? to many definitions!!

    This was sort of my point... well not so much the Islamic world part...but the fact that globalization is a word used to describe a unified platform...which the world is not. Whether that be in terms of currency, politics, or regligion....

    International trade is good. But is that the same as global corporate hegemony?
