The brand of globalism that our elites practice is wrong.
It’s wrong for us, and it’s wrong for the elites.
Of course, the elites can’t see that because they are morally blind. Money has a way of doing that.
The elites believe in an imperialist version of globalism. They see the United States and their allies in the West as the executives to the world, and they see the people in Haiti and Southeast Asia as the worker bees who will work for peanuts to make finished goods for citizens in the West.
Naturally, of course, the lion’s share of the profits will go to the rich in their walled off developments across the United States and in particular Martha’s Vineyard.
The elites and their media lackeys justify their exploitation of these have-not nations as the price they pay for “we the enlightened” bringing democracy to their otherwise destitute nations.
In reality though, we in the West make these nations destitute.
Our apparel companies like Levi’s and Nike pay workers 5 to $10 a day to make our jeans and shoes. Our agricultural companies like Cargill and ADM dump their cheap corn and rice into the exploited nations thus destroying their local agriculture.
The dictators that our elites prop up in those exploited nations through the CIA, their thug agency, ensure that this economic model is possible.
This is the only possible way for the elites to gain unbridled wealth. They wouldn’t be able to do so if they were making an honest buck.
This is how the wealthy in Britain got so wealthy in centuries past.
Those fabulous mansions that the British aristocracy lived in were paid for by the sweat of the workers in the slave plantations that Britain ran around the globe.
When the British weren’t subjugating countries like India and China, they were running slave plantations in Guyana, Jamaica and Fiji.
That’s why you can meet people of Indian extraction who come from Guyana and Fiji. The British elite tricked illiterate Hindu into becoming indentured servants via a thumbprint signature.
When you watch films like Pride and Prejudice or Downton Abbey, and you see the fabulous mansions that Mr. Darcy and Lord Grantham owned, you are looking at stolen wealth.
Our elites here in the United States are impressed by that.
They seek to emulate the British.
But we are not British. We are Americans.
Moreover we should not be British.
We have a common language, English, but that’s it.
Our ancestors didn’t live in mansions Like those of the Lord Grantham and Mr. Darcy; on the contrary, our ancestors lived in work houses like those depicted in Oliver Twist.
This is all the more reason to walk away from Britain’s brand of imperialism.
It is Britain’s brand of imperialism that serves as the model for our modern day globalism.
It’s a wrong model. It’s a wrong vision.
The proper brand of globalism involves a sharing of wealth and productivity.
Each nation should make within reason 80% of its own goods for its own people.
In this manner, every nation can be a winner.
In the current model, exploited nations are used as slave labor camps for the rich who live on Martha’s Vineyard.
Exploited nations also serve as sanctuaries for wealthy corporations to avoid environmental and financial scrutiny.
Exploited nations also serve as pop-off valves to keep wages low in western nations.
The result is the lesser quality of life for citizens in both the exploited and exploiter nations.
The only people who win are the rich.
Free trade is really free imperialism.
It’s the wrong brand of globalism.
When we help others, we help ourselves.
When we help the people of Haiti and Southeast Asia become more prosperous, we become more prosperous.
Paradoxically our rich will live a more rewarding life. But they are too blind to see this.
Obsession with money has created this moral blindness.
They have become a cancer cell practicing the wrong brand of globalism.
