Social Justice and Globalization: Are they Compatible?

Abstract

In a speech in 1999, Henry Kissinger, secretary of state under Presidents Nixon and Ford, candidly remarked that "globalization" is another term for U.S. domination. Such clarity tends, in itself, to negatively answer the question posed in the title of this talk. How can anyone argue that U.S. domination—or using the less polite term, "U.S. imperialism"—is compatible with social justice?
