A sad and alienating globalization

Today I am forgiven for thinking about the evolution of the world.

For thirty years we have been talking about globalization all over the world, but especially in the west.

The trend was not necessarily new, but it was accelerating: countries allowed themselves to be swallowed up by a global system that produced a homogeneous civilization in which metropolises all standardized on the same model.

Everyone became a citizen of the world, and everyone had to feel at home in Montreal as in Los Angeles, in London as in Barcelona, ​​in San Francisco as in Toronto.


The same fashions everywhere, the same globish everywhere.

The whole world has become a hybrid of Hollywood, Starbucks and McDonalds.

Moreover, it was common among the trendiest to say that they were more connected to the other residents of these world cities than to their own compatriots who lived in the region and were seen as laggards, backwards, dusty, reclusive.

The best of globalized humanity was now to be found in these interconnected metropolises.

Also, we no longer really believed in the existence of races: we preferred to see interchangeable populations on the planet.

The borders were declared obsolete. Anyone could cross them at will.

It was no longer even necessary to adapt to the customs and customs, that is, to the identity of the country in which one settled.

It was even up to the receiving society to adapt to the foreigners living there. Hospitality no longer had to be lived. We had to step aside.

Those who opposed this revolution were accused of xenophobia.

Conclusion: Globalization and the associated demographic and sociological changes have created a fragmented world with multiple tensions that will only worsen.

A glance at what is happening in Western Europe is enough to convince oneself of this.

This revolution is mainly based on fraud.

It claims diversity while aiming to annihilate the diversity of the world. This makes Quebec less Quebecois, Italy less Italian, Scotland less Scottish, Sweden less Swedish. The world is unifying – it is being Americanized in low-end versions. It makes us all exiles – Westerners become exiles from within.

To adapt to the laws of globalized tourism, each country becomes uniform: the tourist takes precedence over the citizen and if a country has too strong an identity, it must be put aside so as not to offend the visitors of the moment. .

In Quebec itself, we were told that recently. We were told that French might even be off-putting.

But this world is sad, alienating.

It robs people of a real home where they can continue the work of their ancestors and leave the world to their descendants.


He creates a world that is no longer home.

This world today awakens a sense of revolt.

This revolt is sometimes scornfully referred to as populism. This term is poorly chosen. But this revolt is not only understandable. It is necessary.

This revolt is that of men and women who want to be masters of their own homes.
