globalism how a pre-teen would explain it
14 March 2019 | by mirta-60300See all my reviews

The whole series is a very idealistic view on globalism. Unfortunately for any side portrayed, they never talk with the counter side and they never display the minuses. As a European, it really stuck with me when they said that Europe is economically prosperous (you mean we aren't in as much debt as USA? I wouldn't call this economically prosperous. Everyone's lives worldwide have been getting harder and harder since the 1980s, with the exception of occupied countries who did get their lives improved.) and the fact that they had the 42nd president of United States talk about diversity and how globalism multiplies the opportunities while nationalism divides it. I find that not going out and speaking with the people hurt by globalism (anyone from indigenous tribes, to the working poor of UK really) was very dishonest.

It paints the opposition as stupid and it promotes the kind of thinking that I had when I was 12. "Why can't there be no walls and no countries?". Unfortunately afterwards you face all the issues and grow up.
