Yes, very true - good catch.  His is one node on the spectrum.  Although 
globalists do not have to build arches and coffee houses to develop that 
interconnection.  Even developed systems that provide joint economics - 
benefit and contribution to international nation advantage.  Nations that 
give monetary aid to Africa share a connection.   (French friends of mine 
love Starbucks.  One Italian journalist I talking to shuttered when I 
mentioned meeting at one in Italy).
