Not that the ends justify the means, but an interesting thought
experiment ...

Pretend the whole world was a single political body like the US, then
consider how many of the supposed problems cited by the
anti-globalization contingent would still exist. I've never understood,
far less agreed with any high level concept a anti-IMF/globalization
person has tried to explain to me. They seem to be wanting to prevent
the solution to their gripes.

I mean, like, have any of these people seen a Star Wars movie? (or seen
a want-ad for a job better than "SHOE MAKER: Up to $0.50/A DAY!!! Two
Bathroom Breaks!" in an area that's supposedly being exploited?).
