It's basically a bribe to open up their economies. For example, even though Brazil produces its own sugar, far and wide enough to support its own ethanol appetite, they import Iowa corn. Why? It's cheaper... and you don't have cheap markets without large exchanges of cash. Or something like that...
Here is your free market capitalism, based on exploitation... just as Marx noted. Interestingly enough, in his day religion was still a part of the European daily life. With communism, one overcomes that. In the West, we have overcome religion, and what has happened is not exactly communism here, but a widening of the global market into underdeveloped countries, exploiting their labor, that our masses are no longer willing to accept.
It sure is getting late in the game.
War is a biological necessity of the first importance, a regulative element in the life of mankind which cannot be dispensed with, since without it an unhealthy development will follow, which excludes every advancement of the race, and therefore all real civilization.-Friedrich von Bernhardi
What can be said for a man who would allow his home to be invaded by strangers who demanded they be fed, clothed, housed and granted the rights of the first-born? What can be said for a ruling elite that permits this to be done to the nation, and who celebrate it as a milestone of moral progress?-Pat Buchanan
