Abstract:
This article discusses the anti-globalization movement and how attitudes of anti-capitalism among young people are helping to fuel the movement. This younger group of critics has found three common grounds of discontent with globalization--the idea of capitalism, the process of globalization, and the behavior of corporations--and have made their views clear at recent protests in the streets at world economic gatherings and on college campuses. Many of these youthful skeptics see capitalism as a system that cannot significantly address issues of social justice. The author discusses various influences on college students including the Deconstructionist theory of Jacques Derrida, the topic of anarchy and theories taught within sociology, and the use of the Internet in spreading anti-capitalist attitudes.
