GLOBALIZATION is nothing but the realm of the multinational western companies ( plus Japanese) who expand their filiales in the third World in the search of cheap raw materials and low wages. This cannot but bring social inequality and the creation of a small middle class in the thirld World underfeveloped countries that imitate the western model while the most of their compatriots starve. The liberation of commerce and transports is creating a new multicultural reality in every country of the World. The important is not the possibility of transport and communication- these are means- but the mentality and motivation of workers and investors. Not anyone is migrating for fun but for survival. If a poor immigrant worker could feel at home in his host country the same as the rich members of multinational companies in the ''exotic '' countries , then one could talk for equality. If one is feeling oppressed for financial, cultural and poilitical reasons this equality will never succeed.
Cosmopolitanism as a remedy should be based on an ideal equality to be operational. Weber was right 90 years ago to add two more criteria on the basic marxic criterium of inrquality ( the financial one). He added cultural- educational prestige and political power ( macht). Today, many forms of inequality are due to these last Weberian criteria that Marx could not preview. Thus, the anti-globalisation movement has many similarities with the ecological and Peace movements fighting for a better World of equal chances. The solution potentially will come from the educated middle classes of Europe and especially Youth.
Thinking about your words, i was reminded on Herbert Spencer's Theories, comparing a society structure to an organism. So we can consider the local realities like single individuals and try to understand how they works, and do the same for each level adding the result of local analysis?
