You Will Be Assimilated: Resistance is Futile
Complaining about globalization is as pointless as trying to turn back the tide. There are, I notice, no such debates in China.
McKay quips: "Could that be because, perhaps, it is a Stalinist dictatorship?" Actually, there are some "debates" on globalization, in the form of attempts to organize independent unions or fight the seizure of communal lands for industrial parks. They just don't last long. Maybe the globalists need a good Tiananmen Square incident in this country to shut us all up.
Since Blair presumably believes in "intellectual property," he ought to be paying Tom Friedman royalties on this "globalization as inevitable process" meme.
The last I heard, though, the tide didn't require an international bureaucracy and endless government-enforced subsidies and privileges to keep advancing.
