Parag Khanna: Globalization Doesn’t Fail, We Do

Parag Khanna: Globalization Doesn’t Fail, We Do

The word globalization has only been around since the 1950s. And perhaps because the term is so young, we talk about it like it’s a very recent phenomenon. Something that we can just turn on and off with a switch. But globalization is much deeper than that. It began the day our ancestors began wandering across the continents 100,000 years ago and has been expanding in lockstep with our dense networks of transportation, energy and communications that connect all the…

Globalization: Doha Debates Asks

Globalization: Doha Debates Asks

One second. What does globalization mean? It makes it easier because a lot of things are there which are not available in India, and a lot of things are available in India which are not available abroad. Something across the globe could be in your own supermarket overnight, or something you order online could be at your doorstep the next day. I think it definitely makes life cheaper. I’m not sure if it makes life easier. We’ve got access to…

Nigel Farage insults Herman van Rompuy, calls EU President a “DAMP RAG”

You have the charisma of a damp rag, and the appearance of a low-grade bank clerk. And the question that I want to ask, that we’re all going to ask, is “Who are you?”. I’d never heard of you. Nobody in Europe had ever heard of you. I would like to ask you, President, who voted for you, and what mechanism… oh, I know democracy’s not popular with you lot, and what mechanism do the peoples of Europe have to…

Every urban center has its monuments, its history, its skyline, but great cities are more than buildings, great cities Have a pulse and few mega cities capture the complexity Chaos and vitality of a living system more vividly than New York, yet for a place So deeply embedded in American culture It’s fascinating origins often go overlooked After all no city becomes the Celebrity’s playground, this city that never sleeps, the melting pot, the mother of exiles and the American…

D’Souza DESTROYS “proud Democrat” in heated Q&A

Student: I’m a proud Latina, I come from a proud family of immigrants, and I’m an even prouder Democrat. My question here today is based off a comment that you said earlier. You said that the merits of the Three-Fifths Compromise is up for debate. So who are you, or who is anyone, to debate the merit of one’s humanity? Also, how can you deny the legacy the Three-Fifths Compromise has had and slavery has had on the extent of…

Trump is uncannily truthful and has a strong sense of right & wrong

Student: Early on in the discussion, you mentioned Bernie Sanders making a claim about Norway. I just want to let you know that I do support President Trump, but he also is prone to wild claims that don’t have much foundation. The question that I have is: what makes him different from politicians on the other side who we aren’t supporting because they’re doing the same thing? D’Souza: This is a very interesting question because I think that… I’ve been…

Capitalism vs. Socialism: A Soho Forum Debate

Capitalism vs. Socialism: A Soho Forum Debate

Capitalism is unstable, capitalism is unequal, and capitalism is fundamentally undemocratic. I want people to make their own choices about how they live their lives, the professions they lead, where they want to work, and what they do. And capitalism offers that potential. Slavery it did it with masters and slaves, feudalism did it with lords and serfs, capitalism does it with employers and employees. Capitalism, private property, is necessary although not sufficient to a free and open society. Please…
