Alternative Globalizations: Critical Globalization Studies
Download Full Text
“The central antagonism of the current historical moment is one that we can now unhesitatingly call empire… As market fundamentalism unleashes its vicious assault against humanity under the auspices of the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund and the Washington Consensus, and as it accords itself the sacerdotal status necessary to divine a future of human dignity, prosperity, and democracy, the transnational ruling elite are being afforded a rite of passage to scourge the earth of its natural resources while besieging the working-class, women, children, and people of color… Critical educators today are struggling assiduously to defend the public sphere from its further integration into the neoliberal and imperialist practices of the state and the behemoth of globalized capitalism (McLaren and Farahmandpur, 2005). Still others are seeking a socialist alternative.”
