Globalism was a luxury fantasy

Globalism was a luxury fantasy, by Sarah Hoyt.

Globalism, of the sort that assumes there are no real differences between cultures and that totalitarian regimes are as trustworthy as non-dictatorial regimes, is a luxury.

It is the luxury of those so wealthy and pampered they can afford to ignore reality and live in make-believe.

In centuries past it was the luxury of the very few and very wealthy. Briefly, for a shining moment in history, all of the West could afford to be that stupid.
