"We are the world” sang a bunch of long-since-forgotten American pop stars to a tune by the omnipresent Michael Jackson…but is the vision of a global village a Utopian dream or an Orwellian nightmare?

Are some societal models inherently superior to others?
Should cultural differences be celebrated or homogenised?
Does everybody have the right to eat at McDonalds?

Join your laughably under-qualified host as we explore the philosophy of globalisation…from the Roman Empire to Coca-Cola, via protectionism, western cultural hegemony and climate change. Will you be a corporate multinational or a local cooperative?

No academic or philosophical background is necessary, only a passion for enquiry. Everybody has an opinion and this is you chance to come and find yours!
