Globalization has finally brought the effects of centuries of exploitation in the “Third World” home to roost and Americans don’t like it. It didn’t matter to most when the exploitation was distant and remained invisible, but the idea of a “New World Order” has changed all that. “First World” wealth is now flowing unrestricted into “Third World” investments and as America’s wealth flows out, Third World poverty is beginning to fill the void that it’s leaving creates. The search for global peace, justice and long-term solutions must recognize that all the people on this planet have the right to enjoy a decent standard of living, not just the (formerly) First World nations. Exponential population growth with finite natural resources (nearing exhaustion) is the greatest challenge to the survival of our species. We all better get use to living with less and fast. The fabulous lifestyles of the rich should be the first to disappear, but we all need to take a cut in our expectations.

I watched Noam Chomsky speak to young people on the streets of Manhattan from my home in Gladstone, Oregon. I had to cup both ears to hear above the noises from the street. But it was worth it.
I told my granddaughter that I didn’t want to miss any of this historic event. She is a college freshman, and I hope these brave young people will inspire her as much as they have inspired me and given me hope-hope that had become severely quenched during the Clinton, Bush and Obama years.
