How is it possible to be so stupid and still be alive?

I am watching the Vice Secretary or something of Amnesty International, Irene Khan, declare on the BBC that ~economic globalisation has failed to deliver on increasing security for people around the world. On human rights progress.~

Do you see how lousily lie-laden that is?

No? well, sit up and pay attention then:

Number one, economic globalisation as a philosophy does not promise to deliver on anything. It theorises delivery.

Number two, the philosophy of economic globalisation is practiced by governments around the world and those governments have not promised to deliver on anything except economic growth for the citizens they represent.

So, to use a phrase like 'failed to deliver on security' is simply miscasts what economic globalisation is for and sets it up to fail.

Irene Khan should be saying ecomonic globalisation is achieving in practice just what the theory anticipated - more money for more folks. She should just say that Amnesty is focussed on human rights and money can't buy them - they come from people practising them. So Amensty focusses on people practising human rights.

End of story.

Instead her partisan George Monbiot anti-capitalism feelings colous her language and world view.

I tell ya, if she was working for me, using sloppy language like that, I'd sack her.
