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.
