Chapter Summary

In this chapter, the author aims to disclose the identity of the speaker Giordano Bruno entrusted with the polemics against globalization. In the dedicatory letter Giordano Bruno warns to not take all statements uncritically at face value, and not to ascribe all opinions to the author, but to bear in mind the dialogue form of this work and to pay attention to the person speaking. Giordano Bruno takes a somber view on Christian mission and propaganda for the following reasons: he is not at all a believer in internationalism; Christians, as a rule, do not act according to the principles they are propagating; and Christian mission intends to directly control people's thoughts and opinions, governing their actions indirectly. While Giordano Bruno commended the Romans on propagating their cardinal virtues, he held that in his days Europe had few valid principles to export and clean its own home first.
