13. Oh I agree with many of your points
The problem is that the corporations are working toward a "single state" with no worker or environmental protections anywhere. And they have an inordinate interest in shaping these so-called "free trade" deals. That's why the only recourse some countries have appears to be isolationism or protectionism or whatever, but it's really a natural defensive reaction. Unfortunately, some other countries are successfully coerced into accepting the terms of corporations so it leads to what you are describing. But I'm not in favor of governments merging while corporations have so much power.
