Yeah, WillTell brought this to the table in another thread and then glossed over the fact that Alcoa and Alcan (Aluminum Canada, for example, have Canadian plants and Russian plants (where most of our Aluminum comes from) and within the last ten years or so have both sold off their Chinese interests in plants there.


So it's not exactly shocking they want to avoid across the board tariffs and focus on China. 2+2=?


It also ignores the fact that the EU and Canada tariffs are not happening in a vacuum, but coincide with a year of efforts to reduce, for example, the EU tariff on US autos (10% levied by the EU compared to 2.5% current US tariffs on foreign auto imports) on one hand and renegotiating NAFTA on the other. Pain brings people to the table.

Well I guess these nations have the option of taking their business elsewhere.

Neither am I.

I consider NWO the conspiracy concept of Globalization.

However, in logical reality for me, the only evolution is a united planet.

I am definitely not an isolationist.

Historically there is a good case for Nationalism and the sovereignty it entails. All I see is environmental economic and taxation borders being breached by a select "charmed" few who have some hold over the elected representatives of the People.

If we could somehow have a united planet run by citizens ( perhaps like the Swiss Canton model )

When I see and hear globalists push for dismantling naturally evolved borders through doublespeak or invasion to install "democracy" my warning bells go off.

Im not opposed to that idea nor globalization and originally thought how great for the world.

The problem is that the wrong people and corporations are pushing a global agenda for the wrong reasons.

They are exploiting countries and encouraging low wages and slave labor with little to no worker rights.

Its completely about exploitation and money.
