I have a vision of the world as a global village, a world without boundaries. Imagine a history teacher making history!
"[President George W. Bush] has a vision which can be described with two other words: Manichaean paranoia... the notion that he is leading the forces of good against the empire of evil, that in that setting, the fact that we are morally superior justifies us committing immoral acts. And that is a very dangerous posture for the country that is the number one Global power. ... The fact is he squandered our credibility, our legitimacy, and even respect for our power."zbigniew brzezinski
The destruction of the natural world is not the result of Global capitalism, industrialisation, 'Western civilisation' or any flaw in human institutions. It is a consequence of the evolutionary success of an exceptionally rapacious primate. Throughout all of history and prehistory, human advance has coincided with ecological devastation.john n. gray
Technically speaking, since our complex societies are highly susceptible to interferences and accidents,they certainly offer ideal opportunities for a prompt disruption of normal activities. These disruptions can, with minimum expense, have considerably destructive consequences. Global terrorism is extreme both in its lack of realistic goals and in its cynical exploitation of the vulnerability of complex systems.jürgen habermas
Today we're dumping 70 million tons of Global-warming pollution into the environment, and tomorrow we will dump more, and there is no effective worldwide response. Until we start sharply reducing Global-warming pollution, I will feel that I have failed.al gore
The Muslim Brotherhood is a Global movement whose members cooperate with each other throughout the world, based on the same religious worldview - the spread of Islam, until it rules the world.mahdi akef
As the Global expansion of Indian and Chinese restaurants suggests, xenophobia is directed against foreign people, not foreign cultural imports.eric hobsbawm
With all of the hysteria, all of the fear, all of the phony science, could it be that manmade Global warming is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people? It sure sounds like it.james inhofe
When I was ambushed by Global warming advocates recently—no, they haven't given up—they asked me the same questions they always ask: "What if you're wrong?" and "If you're wrong will you apologize to future generations?" I always answer, "What if you're wrong? Will you apologize to my twenty kids and grandkids for the largest tax increase in American history?" They usually don't have anything to say after that.james inhofe
"In the same way that the Soviets' Sputnik satellite woke up the country to the need for math and science education, the outsourcing conversation cries out for a constructive, long-term solution that ensures Americans have world-class education, a world-class workforce and the ability to remain a competitive Global leader." (2004)
The major challenges facing humanity today are Global – climate change, accessible fresh water, ever decreasing bio-diversity and over population. These problems call for Global solutions and these solutions will require co-operation on a Global scale unparalleled in history. Peace is the essential prerequisite to create the environment to achieve the levels of co-operation necessary.steve killelea
The United States has an isolationist and insular culture, combined with a Global and interventionist posture. This highly dangerous and febrile mixture, which greatly facilitates the task of the fear-mongers and chauvinists, needs a very exact and nuanced diagnosis. I don't think that analogies from the totalitarian model, however suggestive, are sufficient.christopher hitchens
Should Saddam be considered a condottiere, once in the pay of the U.S. government and then rebellious against his former masters? When war constitutes the Global order and when the generals become the highest magistrates, we cannot but expect such developments.Saddam Hussein
...in the period from 1923 to 1948, known as the Bharata Natyam revival. Performers, critics, and promoters through Bharata Natyam to the urban proscenium stage, recontextualizing and renaming it. In doing so they crafted a genealogy in which Bharat Natyam came to represent ancient tradition and critical experimentation, nationalism, regional identities and the Global transference forms outside of geographical and cultural boundaries.
The real problem is how to get people to internally transform , from egocentric to sociocentric to worldcentric consciousness, which is the only stance that can grasp the Global dimensions of the problem in the first place, and thus the only stance that can freely, even eagerly, embrace Global solutions.ken wilber
Church and State should be united in the White Man's religion.— Global White Racial Loyalty and Solidarity must be our constant goal.— Race is everything. In order to survive and prosper, the White Race must overcome its five main enemies: Judaism, Christianity, Communism, Liberalism and Nationalism.ben klassen
[G]lobal warming, that manufactured monomania.
Canada may be fast-forwarding, jump starting, into a new pattern, a model of communication linkages, a civilization that is more than a grab for power and dominance, a place that could channel the fires of the Global wirings, where political alliances are subject to electrical ebb and flow, and the alchemical cultivations of imagination and perception, of the self, could precail of the ideology of capital.b. w. powe
With the growing urgency of climate change, we cannot have it both ways. We cannot shout from the rooftops about the dangers of Global warming and then turn around and shout even louder about the "dangers" of windmills.david suzuki
In the long run, Global politics are bound to become increasingly uncongenial to the concentration of hegemonic power in the hands of a single state. Hence America is not only the first, as well as the only, truly Global superpower, but is also likely to be the very last.zbigniew brzezinski
If you're too stupid to understand that a philosophy that favors a federally structured republic , with numerous restraints on the scope and power of government to interfere with individual rights or the free market, is a lot different from an ethnic-nationalist, atheistic , and socialist program of genocide and international aggression, you should use this rule of thumb: If someone isn't advocating the murder of millions of people in gas chambers and a Global Reich for the White Man you shouldn't assume he's a Nazi and you should know it's pretty damn evil to call him one.jonah goldberg
Climate forecasts (projections) decades into the future have not demonstrated skill in forecasting local, regional, and Global climate variables.roger a. pielke
The Internet is a communication medium that allows for the first time, the communication of many to many, in chosen time, on a Global scale.
This new declaration which emphasizes the necessity of Global disarmament is based on the purposes and principles of the United Nations, in particular the prohibition of the threat and use of force, and on the obligation to negotiate disputes in conformity with the UN Charter. It is a strong and positive example for the entire world.
On the unfalsifiable theory of Global warming:"Evidence that contradicts the Global warming theory, climate kooks enlist as evidence for the correctness of their theory; every permutation in weather patterns warm or cold is said to be a consequence of that warming or proof of it.
In this case, elsewhere, the church's war on the Internet appears to have backfired, and its attempts to staunch the flow of confidential material online have only accelerated their Global dissemination.
It is now clear that with the renewed great game, there are more players and more rivalry than it was during the game being played out between Britain and Russia in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. In that game there was one winner and one loser. The stakes for which the game is now being played are Global supremacy, energy, geo-political security, religion and financial control.
