Anyone have any other suggestions for having your mind/heart blown open? Resources to help see how we are all complicit in what is going on in the world...either by blindly supporting it or by saying that we have nothing to do with it? Feel free to respond.

Read:
"Grassroots Postmodernism: remaking the soils of culture" Gustavo Esteva and Madhu Suri Prakash

"deglobalization: ideas for a new world economy"- my prof, Walden Bello

Watch:
"Why the WTO is really bad for you"- found at the bottom right hand side of www.focusweb.org

"Prisoner of the Mountain"- not about globalization or anything but a really good movie made, oh a decade ago, but still worth watching.

You can't forget "Hotel Rwanda" on the list. It literally changed my life when I watched it.
