Anti-Globalization Toons

I had barely survived reading the (in)famous Road to Serfdom comics when I came across this series of cartoons dealing with neoliberalism, or at least a caricaturized version of it. They're none too subtle, but these cartoons do get the main criticisms of neoliberalism across. From Subcomandante Marcos of the Zapatista rebels to genetically-modified seeds in India, they've got the bases covered.

Particular favorites are "Armed Privatization" and "Neoliberalism Vs. History." The former targets contracts given to American firms in the aftermath of the invasion of Iraq, while that latter aims to disabuse its readers of TINA--There Is No Alternative [to neoliberalism].
