Following the violence of Seattle and Genoa at the G8 Summit came 9/11 and its worldwide repercussions: the ideology of Good versus Evil and of the war between cultures, and the clash of religions, all became part of the globalisation movement. It is vital to look back at the beginning of this century, since although the quarrels between those for and against globalisation are verbal, the conflicting views of civil society and the powers that be, could well get the world caught up in a power struggle way over its head.
