EMPIRES CRUMBLE, EPISODE 9: Globalization & Globalism
44 mins; recorded 24 January, released 6 February.
Many people, especially politicians and the media, have begun to use the words “Globalization” and “Globalism” interchangeably. However, they’re not the same.
In this episode of Empires Crumble, Alley Valkyrie and Rhyd Wildermuth discuss the destructive effects of globalization (and its roots in the oil crisis of the 70’s), the resistance against it, how the fascist right uses “Globalism” as a code for anti-semitic conspiracy theory, and how the real solution to the problems of Global Capital is internationalism, not liberal identity politics.
