JIHAD VS. MCWORLD

assignment: In his book "Jihad vs. McWorld," Barber notes that "A free and democratic society depends on competition of ideas and heterogeneity of outlets..." He goes on to point out that the number of these outlets has been contracting as "the reach of the remaining monopolies has been globally extended." The links below explore various issues of McWorld and Jihad in a variety of ways. Some are linked directly to information about "players" in the McWorld/Jihad scenario, some are critical, some supportive, some reinforcing the call for more democracy. Please explore these links and in a one and one-half to two page essay, report on your findings as they address the issue of McWorld, Jihad and democracy. Be sure to use the material in Barber to link your topics.
