A liberal writer named Michael Lind has ventured into the horrifying implications of economic globalism and the accompanying theology of aracial one-worldism. We are living an experiment called “globalism” every bit as much an experiment as the USSR. In fact, globalism kicked in almost the moment that the USSR was retired.
Since we are all equal and global, there’s nothing special about the American people, except that we had these pesky labor unions and environmental regulations that made it more expensive to do business in Youngstown, than in Jakarta. I spoke with a candidate for House of Representatives named Dubitsky at a public event today, and when I bemoaned the offshoring of most of our industry, he said, “yeah, we have to get rid of burdensome regulations here in the US.” But while one hand gives, the other takes away — we may very well get industry in the US again, but they will give the jobs to immigrants and not “lazy” and “obsolescent” Americans.
Lind puts it this way:
Are the American people obsolete?
The richest few don’t need the rest of us as markets, soldiers or police anymore. Maybe we should all emigrate
Have the American people outlived their usefulness to the rich minority in the United States? A number of trends suggest that the answer may be yes.
In every industrial democracy since the end of World War II, there has been a social contract between the few and the many. In return for receiving a disproportionate amount of the gains from economic growth in a capitalist economy, the rich paid a disproportionate percentage of the taxes needed for public goods and a safety net for the majority.
In North America and Europe, the economic elite agreed to this bargain because they needed ordinary people as consumers and soldiers. Without mass consumption, the factories in which the rich invested would grind to a halt. Without universal conscription in the world wars, and selective conscription during the Cold War, the U.S. and its allies might have failed to defeat totalitarian empires that would have created a world order hostile to a market economy.
Globalization has eliminated the first reason for the rich to continue supporting this bargain at the nation-state level, while the privatization of the military threatens the other rationale.
The offshoring of industrial production means that many American investors and corporate managers no longer need an American workforce in order to prosper. They can enjoy their stream of profits from factories in China while shutting down factories in the U.S. And if Chinese workers have the impertinence to demand higher wages, American corporations can find low-wage labor in other countries.
So this is the Great Experiment, the New, Multicultural America? LOL. The moment they declared the US as a “multicultural empire” rather than a European civilization, they decide to sink it. They hold their nose at their own mixed up, deracinated, miscegenated, multiculted concoction, like a child doing his first “scientific experiment” by pouring every ingredient he can find into a blender, mixing it up, taking a sniff of it, daring his little brother to drink “just a little bit, and I’ll give ya a dollar!” The little brother refuses, so the kid pours the “experiment” down the toilet. That’s our country, or what was our country.
With no racial, tribal, or religious identity, but just a “concoction,” the rulers can do whatever they please. Caligula and Nero, here we come!
