Culture (global)

If the economic globalization that seems to be replacing the nation state we call Canada were also introducing cosmopolitan notions about culture and community, there would be little resistance to it. But that is not what is happening. There is no global culture, but rather the supplanting of civil community, culture and cosmopolitanism with economic competition as a moral system, tribalisms in a variety of dependent pathologies as our means of socialization, and the treatment of all life’s other complexities with the tools of chartered accountancy. It won’t work.
