The following analysis of the "leadership" and direction of the antiglobalization movement was written before the events of September 11, 2001 in New York City and Washington D.C. It was prepared as something to consider prior to the IMF/World Bank meetings originally scheduled in DC at the end of September.

The main body of the text has been left in its original form; an attempt to understand the new situation is briefly presented at the end as an addendum.

Between The Lines' Scott Harris spoke with Robert Jensen, associate professor of journalism at the University of Texas, Austin, who evaluates the credibility and bias found in mainstream corporate media reporting of the devastating New York-Washington terror attacks.

Know the organization(s) that you are involved with. Observe their internal processes. If you are anti-authoritarian, do you observe a tendency for top-down decision making? Is there an ongoing debate within the organization about making it less oppressive to people of color, women, sexual minorities, etc.?

At most ICANN should only be responsible for keeping track of domain assignments and acting as a repository for technical data about the domain system. Instead ICANN is bullying itself into the position of World Government over the Internet, in the corporate interest, casting the rights of individuals to the wayside.
