Globalization takes another step backward after Italy rejects the Renzi-proposed substitution of a non-representative government for the current local representative system. Along with the recent US election of Donald Trump who promotes a nationalist revival and the British vote to exit the EU, the long lauded goal of a One-World Government is slowly dissolving before the eyes of the United Nations and many of its very progressive supporters. It is right for us all to want to help each other, but to each belongs his own responsibility of self preservation, and to no other. We are not members of the "Collective of Borg", all victims of forced equality, as portrayed on Star Trek. Let us continue to rely on ourselves, and help others when we are able and willing. In other words . . . get big government out of the way.
