America, Globalization, and the Reality of Change

I don't do this very often, but here's a blog post that I think is worth reading. Two of them, actually.

"America and Globalization: Strategy for a New Century - Part 2"

I know that "globalization" is a scary word, and I think there is serious concern about what happens when a culture that's been out of the loop for a few thousand years gets caught in the backwash of one that's engaged in exploring the Solar system and cranking out music videos.

However, I think it's safe to say that globalization and American culture are part of today's world. Deal with it.

Note! Although I believe that these websites and blogs are useful resources for understanding the War on Terror, I do not necessarily agree with their opinions. 1 1 Given a recent misunderstanding of the phrase "useful resources," a clarification: I do not limit my reading to resources which support my views, or even to those which appear to be accurate. Reading opinions contrary to what I believed has been very useful at times: sometimes verifying my previous assumptions, sometimes encouraging me to change them.

Even resources which, in my opinion, are simply inaccurate are sometimes useful: these can give valuable insights into why some people or groups believe what they do.

In short, It is my opinion that some of the resources in this blogroll are neither accurate, nor unbiased. I do, however, believe that they are useful in understanding the War on Terror, the many versions of Islam, terrorism, and related topics.
