3. It takes decades and generations

to build the kind of high quality manufacturing infrastructure that the US (and Canada ) have/had. It takes decades and generations to create a skilled working class with good paying jobs and humane labor standards. Yet it takes only the swipe of a pen to sell it all off for a quick buck, lining the pockets of a few.

And once its gone, it is assumed that it is too impractical or expensive to rebuild it all.
