Economic Globalisation as Religious War  - Michael McKinley

Written by Michael McKinley
Edition: 1
Language: English

From the INtroduction:

Let us consider the times. Wealth is increasingly concentrated in the possession of a few,
while poverty and declining standards of living are increasingly distributed among the
many, who are, in any case, being exploited and dispossessed; in the hope of a better life
the millions among this many enter into global migration and wandering – in many
cases reversing, but also complementing the flow of capital; crime is ubiquitous, creating
the need for legitimate violence as a corrective, and there is no shortage of powers,
usually illegitimate, to carry it out in the service of megapolitical actors, who, despite
their advantages of scale, are unable to eliminate pockets of the resistance.1 And all of
this is to the accompaniment of an aggressive insistence on religious observance by
major actors, which is to say the obedience to, and reverence for certain controlling
powers and truths by way of specified practices in honour of their efficacy and vindication
is so commonplace that it is thought to be unremarkable.

Using a critical theory approach to analyze the globalization of the world economy, this provocative and topical new book presents economic globalization not as a recent development, but rather as a familiar process that has occurred throughout history. Michael McKinley argues that it is ultimately a self-serving, arbitrary and destructive imperial project that should be viewed as a religious war.
