Globalization and Homogenization

I was over at Warren Ellis‘ website this morning and came across this video of a Spider Jerusalem rant from Transmetropolitan (which I’m using again for PS 240 this fall). I’m teaching PS 212 Culture and Politics of the Third World this summer, and as I prepare for the globalization portion of that course, this rant seemed particularly apt.

“Now let’s all go out and celebrate by buying the same burger!” Indeed.

  1. Thanks a lot for the link and comments!

    If you’d actually have any use for this, I can easily provide you with a rather better quality version in whatever file format, without the credits and suchlike.

    Stick an @ between my first name and surname and a .org after them if such would be of any use to you.
