That is the mindset Im noticing with a lot of Americans.Trading with country's who have slave labour is unacceptable.
They think that globalization is necessary. That has never been the case
They don't want to make "America great" again, which makes me wonder if it's because of their hatred of the person trying to do that.
They turn a blind eye to the greedy companies who are exploiting slave labour.
They ignore the fact that they are doing business with a totalitarian regime
And now I read
"All interconnected and friends.
Beats the stew out of war and fighting for resources."
Which is complete and utter nonsense.
International trade is a competition, there is nothing friendly about it.
The American military is deployed in over 150 countries. That's a staggering amount given that the UN recognizes 195 countries. Peace through forced coercion.
They have been at war 93% of their history and have been involved in more conflicts than France who is 4 or 5 times older than America and is surrounded by other nations.
So for Americans to talk about being friendly and peaceful is absolute rubbish.
Then there is the assertion that the reason why we haven't had a major war since WW2 is because we are all friends now in this globalization. Another false statement. The only reason there hasn't been a world war for so long is because of nuclear weapons. Nothing more
