Globalization Comes To A Place Near You

Globalization is a word that people use as propaganda. It means free trade and we have had free trade for centuries. It was not easy trade. There were obstacles like contrary winds, lack of maps, pirates and so on but Phoenicians came to Cornwall to buy tin so that they could make bronze. This was about the time of Christ and one trip per summer would have been about it. We got direct government meddling later and it always pandered to special interests. Now efficient shipping means that transport is cheaper and making things where people are paid much less makes sense. Efficient telecommunications mean that moving intellectual work overseas is possible. Economists think it is great until other economists turn up called Wong and Singh, men who do it for MUCH less.

Globalization is great isn't it? It is only the lower classes losing their jobs - at first. Employers love it. They use the illegal immigrants to drive wages down further. Communist subversives love it too. Illegals destroy society and destroy England. It is slow at first, then it gets faster. That is what Antonio Gramsci told them to do. That is what they are doing.

"They like to pretend the coming elections are a fight between several parties of the British people ... NOTHING OF THE KIND! Merely a fight between two, maybe three big money combines, that and nothing else!  ... And when they speak of 'democracy' they don't mean democracy by the people or for the people, they mean FINANCIAL democracy in which money counts, and nothing but money!"
  - Sir Oswald Mosley
