Globalisation is just one of terms for the process of networking and centralisation of political and economic power with the increased importance of transnational bodies and corporations. Reaching the world peace is one of the oldest arguments employed by proponents of the political globalization. The issue of freedom, as one of the central philosophical and political concepts in history is mostly missing in debates on globalisation. Author discuses various facets and usual interpretations of globalizations, explains wider context and then proceeds with opposing freedom to globalization. Leading researchers of globalisation noticed rising inequality and pointed that one of the global processes is the globalisation of poverty. Those who advocate the globalisation of political power (global governance) are opponents of the national state or simply tend to qualify it as obsolete. Author argues that personal and collective freedom may be better safeguarded in the order of national states than in the world order with global political and financial authority.
