Globalism is the modern day manifestation of the attempt to build The Tower of Babel. It will not prevail.

Close, but I see it as an attempt to overcome the scattering of the peoples from Babel. This has been a common dream for generations of thinkers, but one which is, on the whole, unlikely to succeed, if for no other reason than that political communities must exist on the basis of shared interests and ideals. My areas of agreement with, let us say, an Inuit or a Californian are necessarily limited, and are barely sufficient for us to deliberate on, or even conceive of, a common project or future.
Political communities are necessarily of limited size and composition.
