Must distinguish between political and economic meanings of globalism.
Ironically - or confusingly - the same types of people who show up at Big 7 economic meetings to protest "globalism" (economic) are actually "globalists" (political).
Leftists who seek a one-world government which flouts U.S. legal and economic traditions are "globalist" in the political sense, although the press seem to call them "anti-globalist" or "anti-globalization".
What U.S. conservatives generally seek is an expansion of economic freedom throughout the world. We believe this will lead to greater prosperity abroad, which in turn will (1) make us feel good, because we don't want people to be poor and (2) give us trading partners who will help make us even richer. --Ed Poor Talk 11:42, 24 August 2007 (EDT)
Why does globalization redirect here? This article provides a completely inaccurate definition of what modern human geographers define as "globalization." Globalization is not the treatment of the world as a single economy, it's the process of transforming local phenomena into global ones, and is usually applied to culture. I'm going to start an actual article on globalization very soon, one that won't contain the rampant untruths of this article. -Ilikecake 19:19, 10 February 2009 (EST)
