Summary/Abstract: The author believes, that in the circumstances of economic globalization, the left should insist on more rather than less globalization, as is the case in the present moment. Namely, the author argues that Marx and Kautsky have shown that global markets need global government. This is not well understood by some of the most popular left-wing theorists (Hardt and Negri and even Agamben). The author concludes that what we need today is political globalization, or a global democratic government. It is the only way to rectify neoliberalism that operates on a global scale.
