I am a bit disappointed. It's been two days and no defense of that position. Dodgy

Ha! I disagree with you on something and you call me names. I agree with you and you are disappointed. If I could give you another rep than I would. Big Grin

When have I called you names? I have attacked your stupid political beliefs (and they are incredibly stupid), not you. Other than politics, you are a pretty cool guy. I am not disappointed because you agreed with me either.

Given the power on nation states, the power of corporations, the flexing of politico-religio muscle, the stifling of free speech, the destruction of labor unions, the cultural imperialism, and on and on - I'd say things look a lot like the late 19th century.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

They were more important in the past, with much weaker states.

The anxient era wasn't really strobgly influenced by corporations (or merchants, as it would be then). While ancient Egypt was a deeply religious culture, ancient Greece and Rome were also religious, but in their political pursuits were motivated by secular matters. The Greeks, and later the Romans, laughed at the Egyptians who started a war over a holy crocodile.

A world with several power countries.

Wrong.

Show me another era in which globalization to the current extent has taken place. Most respected historians pinpoint the beginning of globalization at around the late 19th century.

All of them?

The difference today is not that interaction occurs, but the scale, frequency, and pervasiveness of it (all of which have increased more or less continuously).

... this is my signature!
