Many opponents of globalisation claim that global finance and trade are manipulated in the name of liberalism by a few people and firms, supported by the international media. They argue that democracy should be abandoned and economic and social change resisted. They have widespread support in the intellectual community. Similar views were espoused by the far right wing in the 1920s and 1930s, and disappeared only with the collapse of Nazism and Fascism. Their reappearance parallels the return to legitimacy of the political far right.
