A speech by Benjamin Barber, author of Jihad vs. McWorld: how globalism and tribalism are reshaping the world. In the wake of recent terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, he urges the U.S. and other Western nations to re-examine their policies on globalism and its effect on the rest of the world. He states that the U.S. in particular needs to be more flexible in adapting to the global policies of other countries, instead of insisting that other governments adapt to ours.
