In Protected content , the Canadian writer J.R. Saul shocked an Australian audience with the message that globalism, aka globalisation, had failed. What seemed outlandish then, seems unsettingly accurate now. We will talk about what we understand when we use the term globalisation, how it differs from what JRS calls "Internationalism" and if it has really failed. We'll also explore to what extent Saul's argument serves to explain the right wing backlash across much of the industrialised world.
