Internationalism is willing cooperation Globalisation is Authoritarian Coercion. There is a huge difference. Does Ms Jolie know the difference, and does she even care? To be an internationalist there have to be ´Nations`. Neo-liberal´ globalisation does not think Nations are a thing, Neo-Liberalism is therefore not internationalist
So does anyone else see the irony of Bashing Nationalism and yet professing internationalist views? Another Hollywood privilege Wank.

Another Hollywood privilege Wank.Following the Dutch election claimed as a victory against populism and in turns nationalism and therefore a vote of confidence for Neo-Liberalism and business as usual. Of course, we will see what happens in France.
I was struck today by this video of Angelia Jolie at the UN.
On France´s upcoming vote Ranjan, we will see what happens. The same broad narratives will dominate as in this Demos report which covers. France, Spain Poland , Germany and Sweden.
Nothing to Fear but Fear Itself
There is a spectre haunting Europe: a culture and politics of fear, which asserts its growing influence in myriad ways. Most visibly, in the rise of far-right populist movements, the collapse of the social contract between citizens and political institutions, and in the proliferation of authoritarian and exclusionary rhetoric.
This pan-European project has sought to capture a snapshot of the ways in which fear is manifesting in the social and political climate of six different member states: the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Spain, Poland and Sweden.
The narratives around the financial Crisis and also the Migrant/refugee crisis have been couched in terms of Global Markets, opportunity, Multiculturalism and fiscal responsibility even Climate Change. Austerity and remaining competitive in world markets is the mantra of the EU and National Politicians both Left and Right where they belong to the Danistocracy
In a Global Economy where the System of Political Economy has not just mal functioned but seized up, we should not be surprised that many of the same issues which make up Brexit are also present in the US and France.
The Mistake many well meaning people on my side in the Left make is that Globalism and Internationalism are the same thing they are not. Internationalism is Willing Cooperation, Globalism is Authoritarian Coercion. ´´A biggly difference Sad!´´to give it some Trump spunk.
Leading on to President trump meeting with Chancellor Merkel in Washington yesterday.
My concern and interest was drawn to Frau Merkel’s insistence that TTIP as a Bilateral Trade deal should properly be placed back upon the table, she also mentioned that CETA was now in place, of course, it has to be ratified by all national parliaments so we will see.Nick Torr http://www.telegraph.co.uk/…/us-makes-formal-apology…/
