Although justice globalists made up the vast majority of those millions who protested worldwide against corporate-led globalisation, they were not the only political camp opposed to it. As the Roaring Nineties drew to a close, market globalism had become the principal target not only for justice globalists but also for a growing number of national-populists. Soon after 9/11, intellectual elites around the world began to wonder whether the Al-Qaeda attacks marked the beginning of the end of globalisation. As can be seen, however, market globalism did not expire on September 11, 2001 and remains to be continuous until at present. Imperial globalism might, therefore, be an apt characterisation of this neoconservative inclination to shape the globe in its own image by military means.
