The fifth debate is still yet to be decided but one pertinent faction of the 21st century is the acceleration of globalization. We hear about globablization and globalism (maybe) a lot these days but its important to point out that with transportation comes globalization and technology. Religion is also an important element of IR, does it produce more violence or more peace in the world? "Political Islam" was thrown out there, Bush has followed the guidance of Jesus Christ and more locally religious extremists in this country are gaining more power everyday. Globalism is a type of globalization, and it centers on deterritorialization. The compression of space and annhilation of distance. Globalism is extending beyond social and geographical space, an example could be Huntington's religous space map. Liberalism is mostly closely aligned with globalization, it is breaking the rules it seeks to enforce. Where neoconservatists emphasize our (or any native) national character, American greed, and the danger of spreading anarchy and diluting the essence of the American homeland.
