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
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
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 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
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
Global poverty is an "input" on the supply side; the Global economic system feeds on cheap labor.michel chossudovsky
(Kálmán's) fundamental contributions to modern system theory... provided rigorous mathematical tools for engineering , econometrics, and statistics , and in particular for his invention of the "Kalman filter,"... was critical to achieving the Moon landings and creating the Global Positioning System and which has facilitated the use of computers in control and communications technology.
Mars has Global warming, but without a greenhouse and without the participation of Martians. These parallel Global warmings -- observed simultaneously on Mars and on Earth -- can only be a straightline consequence of the effect of the one same factor: a long-time change in solar irradiance.
The golden toad was the first documented victim of Global warming. We had killed it with our profligate use of coal-fired electricity and our oversize cars just as surely as if we had flattened its forest with bulldozers. It was as if, having experienced it, we did not recognize what happiness was.tim flannery
Try this: say the words "Global, Global, Global" aloud several times, as fast as you can. You'll find yourself sounding like a turkey ("gobble, gobble, gobble").jim stanford
Business can constitute an enormous force for goodness in society. Through its commitments to corporate citizenship and to the principles of the UNGC, the Global business community can continue to create and deliver value to society.talal abu-ghazaleh
The scope of America's Global hegemony is admittedly great, but its depth is shallow, limited by both domestic and external restraints.zbigniew brzezinski
Science is not sacrosanct. The mere fact that it exists, is admired, has results is not sufficient for making it a measure of excellence. Modern science arose from Global objections against earlier views and rationalism itself, the idea that there are general rules and standards for conducting our affairs, affairs of knowledge included, arose from Global objections to common sense.paul karl feyerabend
What is peddled about nowadays as philosophy, especially that of N.S. [National Socialism], but has nothing to do with the inner truth and greatness of that movement [namely the encounter between Global technology and modern humanity] is nothing but fishing in that troubled sea of values and totalities.Martin Heidegger
With the growth of the world population, the Global climate change and the need for a greater healthy environment, access to water resources has become a crucial condition for the realization of an equitable international order, where the needs of the peoples are effectively addressed. In this regard, the need for international cooperation, including in joint effort with relevant non-state actors, is paramount to ensure water is made available to all without discrimination. Water is a human right, an enabling right, not a mere commodity.alfred de zayas
A new Global financial environment has unfolded in several stages since the collapse of the Bretton Woods system of fixed exchange rates in 1971.
Indonesia is one of the least exposed economies in the region, with a vast domestic market and a relatively small share of exports to gross domestic product, so it is insulated from volatility in the Global economy,
Cross-enterprise engineering is needed to support the Global cooperation of internal and external organization units in the transformation of classic product development into a virtual process.
Unfortunately, Climate Science has become Political Science. It is tragic that some perhaps well-meaning but politically motivated scientists who should know better have whipped up a Global frenzy about a phenomena which is statistically questionable at best.
Called " Rauschgiftbekaempfung ," The Combatting of Drugs, the term also acquired a more popular meaning closer to 'War on Dope.' This extremely cruel and often arbitrary prohibitionist campaign of National Socialist racial hygiene can be viewed as a precursor to the U.S. War on Drugs, which is itself busily mobilizing the entire police state to root out the demonized forces of foreign 'narco-terrorism' threatening the performance principle of Late Capital's Global sweat shop.
