We loan because...
If we are in fact becoming a global village, we will be able to reach some sort of consensus as a global village about how these issues should be addressed in order to benefit all members of our village equally. If we cannot determine respectful cultural boundaries in the simplest manner with regards to language, economy, and basic means of survival, it is presumptuous to assume that we can identify as a global village at all.
