Anti-Globalists and Globalists

Posted by Jack Stephens on February 19, 2007

In History is a Weapon blog the team at History is a Weapon posted a letter they wrote to the New York Times about a certain article that briefly touched on globalization:

But, please save the crap for yourself and stop poisoning our minds.

I first found this linked at Blogbharti by Krish.
