The end of free trade and globalization, as we know it……of course I am sad.

September 19, 2019

Of course I am sad….but maybe that’s not the right word. As sadness is a lover’s word, maybe it would be more appropriate to say – i find it hard to come to terms with the advent of Trump, Brexit and most recently the nascent of Boris. All these I find very hard to come to terms with….as if you read my past post. I have constantly warned about the predatory effects of globalization and free trade and how it can only amplify social stratification…today we have a very disunited America…disunited kingdom et sl and it is conceivable the world is balkanising along the lines of protectionism and xenophobia and parochialism… of course. I am fucking sad.

Of course we are sad. As when you ask only one question – why did we blog? Why did we put in so much effort? It was because we all believed we could stop it.

But that proved a forlorn hope.

I saw it all clearer than anyone else…the before, during and after that is.

My name is Darkness.
