In 2003 the World Bank invested in a oil field Central Asia, and it was called the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan project. This project could spark or reignite regional wars, it could cause human rights abuses and it would also rob local people of there land and livelihoods. A coalition of groups monitoring the project said there were no less than 170 partial or full violations of the World Banks own policies (33 ).
Another branch of Globalization, the World Trade Organization (WTO) rules collide with many public health and environmental protections and dictate the extent to which a country or state may ban or restrict the use of toxic chemicals to protect public health (34).
Also on Jan 17 1996, The WTO ruled that America must lower its standards for Gasoline production, to allow cheaper foreign gas to be sold in American markets(35). On June 19 1996, President Clinton agreed to honor this WTO ruling.

LaRouche the activist/teacher
Lyndon LaRouche, Jr., seems to have founded his own political ideology. This Ideology has often been referred to as Bizarre, and sometimes cult like. An examination of the facts must make us wonder.
Freedom of dissent is not something the followers of Lyndon LaRouche are known for. In January of 1974, LaRouche told his followers that one of them had been brain washed by Soviet secret Police, in part his is what he told his followers "Any of you who say this is a hoax, you're cruds!" LaRouche continued "You're subhuman! You're not serious. The human race is at stake."(36 ).
LaRouche seems to have a great deal of control over his followers, a "drop out" of LaRouche's movement said "It's a seven-day-a-week, 24-hour-a-day total immersion," the "drop out" went on to say "It's a situation where people wouldn't have any private lives anymore . . . . Everyone's got to march to the same tune." (37). "There is some horrible psychological craziness in this group,"said a former member(38).
