Meet the Far-Right
While no American representatives were reported in attendance, a recent meeting of the world's far-right political parties in Tokyo demonstrates that fear and violence know no borders. The Orwellian name given to the meeting, 'Gathering of Patriots to Bring About World Peace' was betrayed by its speakers who discussed 'patriotism' and 'nationalism' with 'a wink and a nod.' "But the passion with which speakers denounced 'globalism', the IMF and America made the conference indistinguishable at times from the World Social Forum—the self-proclaimed anti-Davos of the far left. ... The participants see no irony in their cross-cultural dialogue against globalisation and multiculturalism."
