If you’ve been following this election at all, you have probably heard the words “globalist” and “globalism” thrown around a lot.
As The Rebel’s Lauren Southern explains, some of the people using it are nationalists, or patriots (they see globalism as a threat to the sovereignty of their nation… whichever nation that happens to be). Others argue that the term “globalism” is just a scary catch-all word invented by Trump supporters, or the alt right. A word that means nothing at best, and is a racist code at worst.
The reality is that globalism means something very specific, and very dangerous, if you value democracy, individualism, or any of the values of Western civilization.
