Why Doesn’t Free Trade Work

Everybody talks about free trade, but no one talks about why it doesn’t work.

It doesn’t work because its real name is free greed or free exploitation.

Free trade didn’t work a thousand years ago, or five thousand years ago; and it doesn’t work today.

It doesn’t work because free trade taken to its absurd extension permits one corporation to make all products for everyone all over the globe for slave wages. Free trade works against small and medium sized businesses and in time wipes these competitors off the map. The larger corporations having greater financial resources and, of course, unquenchable thirst for money, have the resources to buy off politicians who can institute expensive and cumbersome regulations that small competitors can not meet. The same politicians can also be “persuaded” to look the other way as employees are being brutalized. This arrangement does not take into account man’s basic desire, need and right to contribute meaningfully to society.

The free trade that America engages in today with Indonesia is a classic example. There workers, outside the control of the US government, toil for sixteen hours per day in a standing position for the grand sum of two dollars per day. Yet the products they ship back to America are just as costly as they were when Americans made those products. Furthermore, because these products are made overseas, average Americans, without work, turn to drugs, violence and criminal activity. They also become welfare recipients. This produces a drag upon society. So, not only do Indonesians not win, Americans lose as well. Indonesians become slaves to corporations as Americans become slaves of the state. The state working in concert with the larger corporations does little to solve the problem save talk.

What does work is fair trade where, within reason, 80% of a nation’s goods are made within that nation. Such an arrangement permits average people and small to medium businesses to live a productive life. It recognizes man’s essential need and right to live a meaningful life where he can contribute to the betterment of his nation. Sadly, free trade does not do that.

Free trade works for the rich, not you. Free trade permits the rich to live their fantasy lifestyle of possessing mansions all over the globe, mansions fully staffed and ready to go for when the great man graces us with his presence. This is what free trade is all about.

The Beauty of Globalism

Why doesn’t globalism work, and why do globalists not desire a unified world?

Globalism as currently envisioned by the corporatists does not work because it is inefficient and exploitative.

An efficient economy would within reason manufacture 80% of a nation’s goods there in that country.

An efficient economy provides the maximum meaningful productivity for its citizens.

Instead globalists barge goods back and forth all over the world creating inefficiencies not to mention potential points of disruption in case of war or conflict.

Which leads us to why they do it – exploitation.

By placing manufacturing in different countries than that country in which the product will be consumed, manufacturing escapes the oversight of the consuming country.

This allows the corporation to mistreat and exploit foreign workers who are often brutalized by dictators the corporations control.

That is why CIA and MI6 exist – to help the dictator control his people.

The globalist thus steals from the citizenry in terms of a meaningful productive life.

The country that is outsourcing loses quality of life through lesser employment, higher drug use, greater criminality, higher suicide rates, lesser sense of self-worth and greater loss of time by compelling adults to waste precious time at government benefit stations.

The country that is being exploited loses quality of life through poorer pay, greater workloads, backbreaking child labor, poorer health and greater loss of time by compelling adults to work 16 hour days.

In addition to exploitation, globalism places the country that is to receive goods at the mercy of the globalists should there be a conflict which of course there will be.

There will be conflicts because conflicts are mandatory in a world run by corporations.

War makes corporations and their owners fabulously rich.

War is a perpetual motion machine of choice which the globalist has no desire to stop.

It’s too perfect a scam.

In a unified world where people respected each other as citizens to be respected, there would be no exploitation of third world countries because there wold be no third world counties to exploit. There would also be no war because people who are meaningfully employed have no motivation to go to war.

Which means, my friend, that all the talk you hear from the corporations and their media shills about a global world where people come together is bullshit.

The Irish potato famine affected one crop – the potato. There were still plenty of grains being produced and exported out of Ireland by globalists, enough grains to prevent the catastrophe that ensued. So much for a global economy. So much for holding hands and singing “We are the World.”
