Sing it, brother. I've noticed recently that every time the word "antiglobalization" is used in the mainstream media it's almost spat out, like an epithet. I don't know if it's intended or not, but it makes for some great propaganda: Everyone opposed to "globalization" (which in the context the media usually uses it sounds so multiculti and egalitarian) comes across as a raging xenophobe. Besides, global/antiglobal are nearly meaningless terms at this late date.
