From a New York Times article about PR efforts by the big movie studios:

To promote the DVD release of "Tinker Bell and the Lost Treasure," Disney publicists went so far as to get the United Nations to name the character an "honorary ambassador of green" to help promote environmental awareness among children.

OK, Beck and Palin fans -- explain that. I'm sure you all believe that the United Nations is even more of a commie, one-world, anti-capitalist operation than even the hated Obama White House. And yet here it is, happily agreeing to promote a bit of low-rent direct-to-DVD product for one of the biggest entertainment megacorporations on the planet.

You're right about globalism, except for one thing: it's all about money, not "socialism." It really is a small world after all -- and we just buy stuff in it.
