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.
