Globalism’s Pen Pal
The article focuses on the book “The Lexus and the Olive Tree: Understanding Globalization,” by Thomas L. Friedman. Friedman is a globalist and a futurist and a techie true believer, but he thinks people should be separated according to race, ethnicity and religion. “The Lexus and the Olive Tree,” reminds that Friedman is worth understanding-not as a thinker or an analyst but as a phenomenon. He arrived on the United States’ most influential opinion page after faithfully following U. S. Secretary of State James Baker-by numerous accounts, another ethically questionable relationship, a poor substitute for experience in any case.
