The controlling Corporatocracy in this country basically is in the process of erasing borders and national sovereignty. The CFR has a paper out (Money, Markets, and Sovereignty) explaining why monetary nationalism is a major threat to globalization, with suggestions on how to eliminate national currencies. They have another paper explaining the needed steps to create a North American Union; the title is Building a North American Community. Both the Clintons AND the Bush Family fully support the idea. The ultimate goal is to eventually merge the European Union, the African Union, the North American Union, etc., etc., into one mega economic structure...a world government, but only in terms of economics. Countries will still retain their individual names and "borders", but both will be meaningless as far as finance & economics are concerned.
It's not a conspiracy; it's just maximizing global business. Unfortunately, it will result in re-distributing wealth AWAY from the U.S.---except for the wealth of the Elites. That has already started.
The Corporatocracy doesn't give a hoot-in-hell what we common folk think of all this. There is nothing we can do about it short of a massive boycott of the Fed Govt and mega multi-national companies...and that will never happen.
The whole thing is Cronyism beyond compare. Whether Democrats or Republicans control DC matters not one whit in terms of this "globalization" process. The USA is well on its way to becoming essentially a third world country, with no Middle Class...only the super-rich and the relatively poor.
People have dismissed what I've described above mostly because it has been labeled a "conspiracy theory", which is a Machiavellian tactic that is usually successful. But the whole move to "globalization" has been having some really negative effects on our economy, and two things are becoming obvious to everyone: 1. the Middle Class is suffering due to all this; and, 2. the super-rich are getting richer (and more powerful) due to all this. I have hopes that someday common folk will see through the "globalization" charade. I have almost no hope that they'll do anything effective about it.
