the Spirit of Mahatma Gandhi lives through every nonviolent action

Globalization... it seems obvious that humanity is heading that direction, but, for sure, there are many different projects of globalization... for example, the 'noglobal' movement was nonviolently opposing the multinational globalization and evolved in 'alter global' green economy movement.... the 'occupy wall street' movement opposing the financial globalization has now become a nonviolent mobilization to 'occupy the world'... all over the world, masses of people, in peaceful demonstrations, are resisting nonviolently the violence of the system they want to change... thousands of small groups are active promoting simple sustainable living, natural cure, respect for the environment, solidarity and cooperation ... and all of them say they are inspired by Mahatma Gandhi…
I think it is time for the international and Indian Gandhians to acknowledge that the "globalization of nonviolence" is the fastest growing and successfully expanding among all globalization projects.
As far as I know, Gandhiji had a very clear vision of the world being one… one world, one family, vasudhaiva kutumbakan, and he had a project for a new social order for the world… based on ahimsa, sarvodaya, gramswaraj… 
I think that we, as ‘gandhians’, need to update and debate these ideas, start envisioning the future world as it could be, and constructively work for its manifestation.
Jai Jagat!
