Glocalization. The Common Good. Buzz phrases like "global village" or "global information society" are misleading. The concept of "global" is not itself global, in other words globalization is not "universal", it does not affect everybody in the same way. Exactly like the very concept of "universality" is not itself "universal". I am referring here to some Asian voices raising concerns about the "occidental" flavour of the "Universal Declaration of Human Rights" and supporting the idea that "Asian values" were not taken properly into account and might even be in contradiction with it (for instance the confucean predominence of the Society over the rights of the Person).
