Well, alrighty then, as the door has already been opened, I guess it's time to throw in my 2¢...
Let me just say I'm only responding here to comments about nationalism and globalism, and not matters of technology.
I don't have a problem with globalization per se. We are all, of course, one single species of animal which, at some point, needs to crawl up out of the muck and come to recognize we're better off functioning as one species instead of being divided by nationalities and artificial borders, tribal city-state groups, and philosophies and ideologies started by Bronze Age or older folk with a Bronze Age or older understanding of reality.
[Sorry, that really was one freakishly long sentence. However, that's the preamble to what's yet to come. Buckle up.]
I don't have a problem with globalization as such, but what I do have a serious problem with is the use of arbitrage, which is simply a tool of exploitation. If a government's primary purpose is not the protection and empowerment of its own people, then it exists for the wrong reason as much as it exists to their detriment. Now, you gentlemen above want to say there's barbarism afoot here, and you're right: there is. But more entrenchment of division between groups, reinforcement of the disparity of income, opportunity, safety, and above all the doubling down of the entrenched nationalism we're seeing in America as well as Europe, South America, and elsewhere is making the situation worse, not better.
Why should it make a difference if I was born in Cleveland, Ohio or somewhere in the middle of Nigeria? Or the Steppes of Asia? The argument often heard (though I'm not suggesting anyone here specifically is making it) of pulling oneself up by one's bootstraps — or rather the lack thereof — is a load of bunk when it is applied, as it so often is, as the initial cause of this disparity.
I said above that only education stands between us and the danger of becoming a regressive culture. That being the case, the irony of contemporary American culture essentially standing in opposition to that concept — while patting itself on the back for all the great and impressive things it has accomplished in the past — comforting itself against the reality that how our present international system of both foreign and domestic exploitation simply "is the way it is" is not just beyond comprehension, but beyond calculation.
Forget political parties and religions and even basic enculturation: the real fundamental cause of all the crud and cruft we're seeing going on in the world, especially today, is the result of ignorant people (inadequately educated, maleducated, educationally disenfranchised) easily misled and deceived. What we're seeing now, in 2019, is the result of decades of creeping ignorance, exploited by the powerful.
I'm so down wit' dat', yo, dass ich unter dem Beton bin.
