You can stand on the right or on the left of the political circus, but a new dimension is now getting critical. There are people who believe in the political institutions and in the need to improve their functioning in order to control globalisation and others who think that the only useful political activity can be at the local level and that any valid change should come from the bottom. For me it’s obvious that local best practices, national politics, international governance are all necessary. It’s no use to play them one against the other, as if they were different ideologies. But more and more I meet people who are just “top down” or “bottom up”.
