McWorld and Globalism on NPR

WNYC – The Brian Lehrer Show: The Fear Factor (October 01, 2003)

From the site:
Benjamin Barber argues that the McWorld is not a democracy. He accuses the Bush administration of confusing free-market ideology — sold on the sizzle of brand-marketing — with the spread of democratic ideals. Barber is the author of Fear’s Empire: War, Terrorists, and Democracy. According to Barber: “The two axial principals of our time %u2013 tribalism and globalism %u2013 clash at every point except one: they may both be threatening to democracy.”
