Subject: RE: This is no time to be silent...
I call myself a liberal, but I haven't been able to get too worried or excited about the WTO and all those other acronyms. I think a global economy is inevitable, and we have to have international entities like these to make it work. If managed well, a global economy can make nations interdependent, which means they might be less likely to fight with one another.

Yes, I know that globalization can have serious effects on third-world nations, but we need to do our best to ensure that doesn't happen - and not just stick our heads in the sand.
