The people heading America's food chain rake it in from the carnage.� That is not to say that Americans do not enjoy cheap gasoline and bananas (that is part of the bribe), but capitalists have no particular allegiance to the USA.� They will go wherever the profits are.� Those cheap commodities come with being at the empire's heart.� We are seeing the long-term effects of global profit-seeking, with American jobs being shipped off to places such as Indonesia, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Asia, where $20-per-hour American jobs became $2.00-per-hour Mexican jobs and $2.00-per-day Indonesian jobs, while executive compensation (almost exclusively white men) skyrocketed, in a class war between the capitalists and the global working class .� White, educated, American men are the most privileged demographic group in world history and will probably be so for some time.� Women, the uneducated, and people of color do not cheer too loudly for America's state of affairs, with a large and growing homeless population, the world's largest prison population, and many other social indicators that nobody can cheer about. [325] Capitalists know what they are doing.� The international treaties that they rammed through, such as GATT and NAFTA, were designed to make the world safe for profits, having the owners' interests "peculiarly attended to."� Real wages in America significantly declined since 1973, with a slight increase in the 1990s "boom times," but the 1929-like Wall Street Scandals, which began with the 2000 collapse and reached new heights in 2002 with Enron and many other accounting scandals, were only preludes to the economic collapse of 2007-2009 .� Average Americans are slowly joining the global oppressed class.� The goal of global capitalism is turning the entire planet into the Global Plantation, where plutocratic pockets of cognac-sippers exist throughout the world, and the slave-driver class (corporate managers, academics, professionals, the military, and CIA, etc., which are about 20% of the USA's population) keeps the vast majority of humanity in the yoke.� Under that scenario, which has been unfolding for many years, it will always be preferable to be Joe Six-Pack in America than toiling on a Guatemalan banana plantation, but the differences are slowly disappearing.� In the spring of 1999, the USA was destroying two nations at once: Iraq and Yugoslavia.� I had strange conversations with people who thought that those situations were unrelated, who thought that in the midst of the genocide of Iraq's children over controlling Middle East oil, the very same politicians and diplomats had suddenly grown big hearts as they bombed Serbia to “free” Kosovo.
