So much for globalism, eh?

Re: "Politicians should think magnificence, do something noble: John Dalla Costa," (The Hill Times, Dec. 19). I have just finished Saul's The Collapse of Globalism, and it seems as though John Dalla Costa has read it as well. Perhaps the attitudes of our current politicians is just a reflection of the immorality of the globalism phenomenon. I never did understand how people thought that globalism was a workable system and now we are all realizing that it isn't. Human beings are more than money and perhaps as we refocus on our "tribes" (nation states) and reclaim our own identity, a leader or leaders will emerge that reflect that.
