I just watched the video mentioned by the OP and it is essential viewing for those who are interested in fascism as defined by Mussolini, i.e. the
union of the state with corporate interests. Sadly, the state seems to be the junior partner in these arrangements nowadays.
The film focuses on Indonesia, where many of those trendy fashion labels we flaunt have manufacturing plants. The story the film tells is appalling.
We are the beneficiaries, in this culture, of exploitation of labour remaniscent of the sort of thing common in the early stage of the industrial
revolution, the sort of thing that generations of our own ancestors fought long and hard to eradicate in our culture.
I say "our" culture, not the culture of David Rockefeller, Tony Blair, the Nike corporation or a host of other western industrial giants. "Their"
culture seeks to undo the labour of our ancestors and to restore the dominance of unrestricted exploitation.
Anyone who thinks that this situation is confined to the third world is not paying attention to what is happening around them. The film linked to
above makes it very clear that we have to stop cooperating in our own destruction. We have the one thing the global elite craves most. Our dollars. We
have to stop handing them over unconditionally
