anyone following the fracas about scarlett johansson, oxfam, & sodastream brought to the fore due to her appearing on behalf of sodastream in a superbowl ad?
oxfam has removed her as a spokesperson due to her appearing for sodastream.
I've long suspected there may one day be such a thing as nostalgia for globalization. Should China and Japan really get into it about those deserted rocks — called one thing by the Japanese and another by the Chinese — and the United States become involved, as it certainly would, bye bye this Modus Vivendi we've come to call by the name of globalization, and hello nostalgia for it. Flawed as it is, globalization beats world war, beats one imperium using armed might to go full tilt against others.
