Corporations don't control government ... although with a Trump presidency they will have increasingly favorable legislation. Why does America have some of the cleanest air in the world for any wealthy country? Because of regulations. Hopefully the bad and ignorant Trump wouldn't result in air too much dirtier than before.
If you are wondering why food prices are so high in Korea it's because of "Korea first" policies. Globablism rewards specialization. Which benefits everyone overall. Trade wars and tarrifs are terrible. Study economics and you'll see what I mean.

Why are you on the air tangent? The US barely even manufactures anything?? Corporations maximized profits by sending all those jobs to China!

Now as far as globalization rewarding specialization, the problem with this is that the rewards are not evenly distributed.
But a rising tide lifts all boats, generally speaking.
I meant if a region specializes in one thing they can get really good at it through practice.
Also, competition drives progress. (And protectionism interferes with the 'invisible hand' of the free market. People should do what they're good at. What they're talented at. What their location will help them do. And if that location isn't advantageous, move.
We need something resembling a one world government. (Oh noes, a NWO!!1@_@)
Quote from: lifeimprovementWe need something resembling a one world government.This is Utopian thinking. We need a one-world government when the people of the world, across all its regions and cultures, recognize the need for one and desire that their elected leaders meet to form one.

Cmon, this guy has to be the most brilliant troller (even beyond me).
Globalism is a euphemism. All it means in practice is American hegemony: domination of many by one.

Lifeimprovement is in effect saying that it'd be better if all the world was under one hitler, with no chance of escape.
No, I meant countries should work together for the benefit of humankind.

"We can exclusively reveal that George Bush Sr.'s occult name is Magog, which is the name of the evil army commanded by Satan to visit earth and destroy the kingdom of Christ." Sounds credible. I'm afraid!
