As our corporate telescreens were abuzz with al-CIA-duh terr’ists gone wild—thus distracting the masses with an unending stream of scary campfire stories—the House passed the Central American Free Trade Agreement, the bastard sibling of NAFTA, a monster that ate 900,000 American jobs. Thus we are on our way to becoming part of the neolib’s global slavery plantation as more jobs are “outsourced” to Latin American countries where workers earn about 90 cents an hour. “This bill is a commitment of freedom-loving nations to advance peace and prosperity throughout the Western Hemisphere,” declared Bush before the vote. Of course, he is talking about the “peace and prosperity” of transnational corporations and the international bankers behind the IMF and the World Bank—the rest of us will experience increasing poverty and a complete loss of our sovereignty. Get used to it.
