From the Net:
There’s NEVER been free trade, ever, no matter how far back you look in history. Free trade is Imperialspeak for the dominant economies dictating to the weaker.
Well of course. Anyone who can’t figure this out just doesn’t get it. There’s a reason why only rich countries promote free trade. It’s designed to keep them rich forever while keeping the poor countries poor forever, all in the disguise of fairness.
Free trade is something like this: Suppose you have a race and half the racers have crutches. Those are the poor countries.
Normally you handicap the hobbled players to give them a chance. However, in free trade you get rid of all the handicaps because they are “unfair” to the runners who don’t have crutches! To make it “fair” like “free trade” you simply have the same rules for everyone. Of course the runners without crutches will win every time, but that’s “fair”. That’s “free trade” in a nutshell. Sound fair? Of course not.
What sort of people in poor nations would go for this BS? Only traitors, of course. And in this world, all poor countries allied with the US are run by, of course, traitors.
