Americans, as they always do, got sold a bill of goods called “globalism.” Globalism is the deception used to destroy labor unions, deprive the American work force of middle class jobs, and strip them of their bargaining power. It is also the deception used by transnational agri-business to drive self-sufficient third world peoples off their land and convert the country’s agriculture into the production of a mono-crop export commodity.
The evil done by globalism has taken a toll on both first and third worlds. It is entirely the result of first world capitalist profit-maximizing. It has nothing to do with China.
China is being blamed not because its industry produces cheaper than our industry, but as a scapegoat to hide from view the fact that US global corporations alone are the cause of the lost American jobs.
