One of the effects of globalization is migration.
People in Third World countries see the privileges that white people have and decide that they can never achieve that in their home countries.
They migrate to the West.
And people in the First World, fearing that they will lose their privileges, resist this movement.
This is called protecting our borders.
And it is the basis of the latest political swing to the right.
This is inevitable, however.
As the world is transformed by globalization mass movements of population will result unless we address the problems of poverty and oppression
Many of these problems are caused by the West.
White privilege was established at the barrel of a gun.
And it is sustained by military might.
Our precious democracies and civil rights are maintained by domination.
As we move into the Age of Aquarius this domination will be called into question.
And we may see a more equal, more just world.
