Globalisation – money and gun-power

Posted by

The right hand of anarchy.  Mrs Thatcher in the 1980s took an axe to the roots of Britishness. This is not how she saw it, of course.   She genuinely believed that she was removing an excrescence on True Britishness.  Nice theory, shame about the facts.

Yankee-Global Went To Prague.  The protests in 1999 and 2000 against globalisation.  Money and Gun-Power as the core of the system.

Ireland and SubAmericanisation.  The history of the Anglosphere, including English domination of Ireland.  And the reasons the British Empire fell.

Hong Kong shanghaied.  The true history of the ‘opium city’ created by Britain when it broke open China and forced it to accept Western values.

Irrational rationalism.   Conor Cruise O’Brien book ‘On the Eve of the Millennium’ shows a basic confusion between rationality and establishment vanity. Wider problems of economic development and the roots of science are considered.

Half-Arsed Classlessness.  The limits of the Thatcher and New Labour idea.

Stakeholders.  The meaning of a new word.
