1. Correct me if I'm wrong, but ...

... "globalization" and "free trade" are myths and misnomers because while capital and materials flow freely across borders, labor cannot. Globalization as it currently practiced depends on a labor force that is essentially enslaved. If Chinese workers were free to travel anywhere in the world to earn their living, do you think that Wal-Mart would be chock-full of dirt-cheap Chinese goods?

Shall we talk about international trade unions?
