2. CH 24 - Crash Course Globalization I
In which John Green teaches you about globalization, a subject so epic, so, um, global, it requires two videos. In this video, John follows the surprisingly complex path of t-shirt as it criss-crosses the world before coming to rest on your doorstep, and eventually in your dresser. (Unless you're one of those people who never puts their laundry away and lives out of a laundry basket. If that's the case, shame on you.) Anyway, the story of the t-shirt and its manufacture in far-flung places like China, Guatemala, and India is a microcosm of what's going on in the global economy. Globalization is a bit of a mixed bag, and there have definitely been winners and losers along the way. In this episode John will talk about some of the benefits that have come along with it. Next week, he'll get into some of the less-positive side effects of globalization.

Also, you should turn on the captions

Quote: "Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity." - Martin Luther King, Jr.

Agenda:
1. DO NOW: Which of the following contributed most to the demographic changes shown on the graph?

2. Crash Course World History #42 Globalization II
In which John asks whether globalization is a net positive for humanity. While the new global economy has created a lot of wealth, and lifted a lot of people out of poverty, it also has some effects that aren't so hot: Wealth disparity, rising divorce rates, environmental damage, and new paths for the spread of disease. So does all this outweigh the economic benefits, the innovation, and the relative peace that come with interconnected economies? As usual, the answer is not simple. In this case, we're living in the middle of the events we're discussing, so it's hard to know how it's going to turn out. 

To what extent did the processes discussed in this chapter: 
Economic GlobalizationEnvironmentalismFeminismFundamentalism
represent something new in the twentieth century? 
In what respects did they have roots in the more distant past?

3. Notes, Video, Discussion: CH 24 - Feminism in the Global North & Global South
Feminism is the radical notion that females are people, too. ;) 
It is the advocacy of women's rights on the grounds of political, social and economic equality to men.
However, feminism is dramatically different in the Global North than compared to the Global South.

4. Notes, Video, Discussion: CH 24 - Radical Religious Fundamentalism (Christian, Islamic) 
In the modern world, religious belief & practices declined sharply as the spread of scientific culture dissolved such religious superstition that flourished in a time before science could measure the world. However, a contrarian and powerful push from religious groups that have become radicalized and militant have caused political instability around the globe. Stateless terrorist groups have thrived both on the Christian and Muslim sides and the Middle East region continues to be a 'powder keg' of explosive potential.
