Coming to grips with the new shape of the world.

Globalization Globalization has many definitions, but at its root it is about the planet getting smaller and the free flow of people, goods, capital, and ideas across borders. Globalization has been sped up by technology (computers, jets, etc.) and it makes traditional notions of sovereign nation-state powers more and more irrelevant.

Hendrik Hertzberg wrote in The New Yorker (9/24/01) that globalization “. . . relies increasingly on a kind of trust — the unsentimental expectation that people, individually and collectively, will behave more or less in their rational self-interest. . . . The terrorists made use of that trust. They rode the flow of the world’s aerial circulatory system like lethal viruses.”

The terrorist network at work today uses the technological tools of globalization, and they ignore (or attempt to transcend) the normal definitions of the nation-state. Furthermore, the extreme Muslim fundamentalists (and others) worry that unbridled globalization can exploit workers and replace ancient cultures with McDonald’s and Mickey Mouse.

“. . . leading thinkers have begun to discuss one of the ironies laid bare by the terror attack — the same technologies that empower our lives turn into double- edged swords in the wrong hands,” according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

Given all this, globalization cheerleaders need to answer some questions:

“The terrorists were trying ‘to stop the corrupting effect of Western civilization on the Islamic world,’ [Berlusconi] said, while ‘the anti-globalization movement criticizes, from within Western civilization, the Western way of life, trying to make Western civilization feel guilty. ‘That’s why I see a singular coincidence between this action and the anti-globalization movement.’

In Washington, DC, an anti-globalization protest which was planned for the canceled World Bank meeting morphed easily into an anti-war protest (which some interpreted as sympathetic to the terrorist forces). Sloppy thinkers might even say that since anti-globalization forces are opposed to world trade, taking out the World Trade Center could be seen as a victory for them.

The vast majority of the anti-globalizers have denounced all forms of violence (both before and after September 11). But they still have some hard questions to answer as well:

West Bank settlers derided as terrorists for turning on their own army

Extremist Jewish settlers attacked a nearby IDF encampment after several mobile homes in a settlement outpost were demolished. Israeli security officials called for harsh measures.

For years extremist Jewish settlers have targeted Palestinians in retaliation for Israeli government efforts to curtail settlement growth, typically receiving only light punishment. But this week they turned on the soldiers charged with protecting them and they may have gone too far.

On Tuesday, residents of the settlement Yitzhar and other sympathizers attacked a nearby Israel Defense Forces encampment staffed by reservists, destroying their living quarters. Condemnation has been swift and strident: Current and former government officials have called for the attackers to be labeled terrorists and rounded up. The overarching sentiment is that Israel’s so-called “price tag” settlersare out of control.

“What is going on in the territories is Jewish terror,” Ami Ayalon, a former head of the Israeli intelligence agency Shin Bet, told Yediot Ahronot. “All of the other definitions coming from the prime minister, from the ministers, or the president ‘hate crime,’ bad weeds,’ and such are meaningless. Laundered words. And until they do this, they wont solve the problem.”

This isn’t the first time that vigilante settlers, who use the term “price tag” for their revenge attacks on Palestinians in response to Israeli efforts to curtail settlements, have attacked IDF targets. But they have never lashed out at guardposts of their own settlements, nor at reservists, who are seen by Israelis as sacrificing work and family for the state.

Security experts blame Israel’s army, police, and government for yielding to the vigilante settlers for years, which emboldened them to risk igniting widespread Palestinian unrest.

“If such an incident had occurred in an Arab village, the IDF would go from house to house, search for illegal weapons, and try to arrest the law breakers,” wrote Alex Fishman, a defense analyst in the daily Yediot Ahronot newspaper. “Now the army is slightly annoying the residents leaving the settlement, checking papers, asking questions. The police made an arrest. Thats nothing.”

The IDF encampment sits on anisolated plateaubetween the hilltop settlement of Yitzhar and two Palestinian villages in the valley below.On Tuesday morning, dozens of settlers roused the reservist soldiers from sleep and told them stand down. They proceeded to destroy a tent, a latrine, and a gas heating installation.

KURTZ: Is 'intimidation' to blame for ouster of Mozilla chief over gay marriage?

The forced resignation of Mozillas CEO over his views on gay marriage has sparked a passionate debate that doesnt always break down along the lines you would expect.

The media framing of the saga of Brendan Eich has been that a bigot got what he deserved (that is, when it was covered; the network evening newscasts couldnt find time for the Mozilla story last week). But even some of those who deeply believe in same-sex marriage say its a case study in intolerance.

Eich was pushed out of the company that makes the Firefox browser after a week in the top job because he contributed $1,000 to Californias Prop 8 back in 2008. He has not spoken of gays in disparaging terms or made his workplace unfriendly to gays. He simply supported the position backed by Barack Obama until the spring of 2012: that marriage should be between a man and a woman.

I believe that same-sex marriage will eventually become the law of the land, given the shift in public opinion and that most younger people regard it as a non-issue. But you can believe that and also think that those who hold different views should be treated with respectjust like in the divisive debate over abortion.

Andrew Sullivan, the gay blogger who has been an advocate of same-sex marriage for decades and is married to his husband, is appalled by what happened to Eich:

Will he now be forced to walk through the streets in shame? Why not the stocks? The whole episode disgusts me as it should disgust anyone interested in a tolerant and diverse society. If this is the gay rights movement today hounding our opponents with a fanaticism more like the religious right than anyone else then count me out. If we are about intimidating the free speech of others, we are no better than the anti-gay bullies who came before us.

For Sullivan to accuse some of his fellow gays and gay-rights advocates of fanaticism and intimidation is an incredibly strong statementand a tribute to his long record of independent thinking.

Americablogs John Aravosis, who got into a heated debate with Amy Holmes on yesterdays Media Buzz, takes a different viewand at one point compared opposition to same-sex marriage to the Holocaust. Holmes shot back that the Human Rights Campaign endorsed Obama when his position was also in favor of traditional marriage.

Aravosis writes: Normally, I wouldnt really care how a corporate CEO felt about marriage equality. Dont get me wrong,I care. And Id laud a CEO if she came out in support of it. But I dont think Id launch a campaign against a company simply because its boss wasnt quite there yet on marriage. I know lots of people who arent there yet though that audience is slimming down fast.

But Brendan Eich wasnt simply not there yet he played an active role in creating and enforcing discrimination against millions of gay Californians. So his offense was pretty severe, and it went arguably beyond speech he joined the ranks of anti-gay activist.

Mozillas Brendan Eich and gay marriage: Intolerance over tolerance?

Shortly after being named head of Mozilla, Brendan Eich was pressured to resign over his earlier support of California’s Proposition 8 ballot measure against gay marriage.

The resignation of tech wizard Brendan Eich as CEO of the Mozilla Foundation after only 15 days on the job has roiled Silicon Valley, reverberating across a country struggling over the fine line between privacy rights and free speech, especially when it comes to gay rights.

Mr. Eichs $1,000 donation to the Proposition 8 campaign the anti-gay marriage referendum that passed in California in 2008 and which was overturned by courts last year prompted backlash among some of Mozillas software developers, whose agitation became an Internet groundswell that led to Eichs resignation Thursday. Eich has not been accused of discriminating against any employee, and he has not apologized nor suggested that he no longer opposed gay marriage.

“Our mission is bigger than any one of us, and under the present circumstances, I cannot be an effective leader, he wrote in a statement.

The resignation was greeted with cheers among many in the gay community and beyond, some of whom had threatened to stop using Mozillas ubiquitous Firefox browser if Eich didnt step down.

But others are drawing a different lesson from what happened to Eich, likening the events to a scorched earth policy thats antithetical to a society where tolerance for opposing viewpoints is a mainstay of the Constitution.

This is troubling because ones politics is ones own business, Charles Elson, director of the John L. Weinberg Center for Corporate Governance at the University of Delaware, told Bloomberg News. Thats been the rule in American business for a very long time.

To be sure, those behind the movement to oust Eich believe that a Silicon Valley company in America shouldnt accept those who believe in discrimination. Some say opposition to same-sex marriage is akin to fighting against interracial marriage, and can no longer be socially accepted.
