Forgive me if I fail to have sympathy for this “recolonization”. As it has lead to the immiseration of America, and end of the American dream. These were unionized jobs that could allow one member of a family, typically the male, of course — and with not a high level of education, to raise a family, retire at a reasonable age with a full pension, and send his or her children to college (without them being weighted down and made indentured servants/slaves essentially well into middle age to creditors). And It makes me think of the ascendancy of the right-wing libertarian cadre in the alternative media…

Crackpots such as these actually want to smash all of the unions, they don’t believe in any kind of worker agency in an economy! As Marx ostensibly wanted the “dictatorship of the proletariat” right-wing libertarians want the dictatorship of the owners essentially, and for workers whatever scraps — for their time exerted — that massa provides them!
