Structured Sin The Curse Of Free Trade

By  Ray Tapajna

In my advocacy for workers dignity, common good local economies and real free enterprise, I have given free trade economics different descriptions to point to the reality of it.  I have called free trade a nightmare and other things like it being an economic disease and economic cancer.  In my advocacy, I explore the latent response of religion and philosophy to the global economic arena.  Lately, I have called free trade a sin. I thought I was perhaps pushing things to far.  However, after reading about Bishop Oscar Romero who was murdered while saying mass in 1980 by a military officer who graduated from the School of Americas where the U.S. trains South Americans to support “security” in Central American and other South American countries.  Pope Francis took a ban off Romero’s beatification  and now he is destined to become a saint in the Catholic Church.  After reading more about the debates around the ban , I now call free trade economics structural sin.  And here’s why in my response to a friend who reviewed a book about the dark side of our world today.

-- Good to hear from you. I am currently studying "structural sin" with Bishop Oscar Romero being beatified. Pope John Paul wrote about it and Pope Francis removed the ban of Romero's  beatification due to debates about his being a part of Liberation Theology. In 1980 Romero was shot through the heart while saying mass by a military officer who was a graduate of the School of Americans.  

The reality of Salvadoran society forced his conversion into an outspoken, confrontational leader who directly attacked those who perpetuated what he called “structural sin:” “When the church hears the cry of the oppressed,” Romero wrote before his murder, “it cannot but denounce the social structures that give rise to and perpetuate the misery from which the cry arises.” If Romero was alive today, he would recognize trade coming TPP trade deal  along with the broader, disastrous policies Washington is pursuing in the
Mexico-Central America-Colombia security corridor, as prime examples of “structural sin.”

The day before he was killed,Romero said, 

(How easy it is to denounce structural injustice, institutionalized violence, social sin! And it is true, this sin is everywhere, but where are the roots of this social sin? In the heart of every human being. Present-day society is a sort of anonymous world in which no one is willing to admit guilt, and everyone is responsible. We are all sinners, and we have all contributed to this massive crime and violence in our country. Salvation begins with the human person, with human dignity, with saving every person from sin.)

In the debate about he being a martyr, some say he was killed for political reasons and not spiritual. This points to the very essence of the duality and  division between the day of worship and the rest of the week. Political life can not be divorced from our spiritual life. The darkness surrounding us as you review seep into our souls.  And  this is why  I now call free trade economics structural sin. Someone has to stop the sin of living off the suffering and our economies based on discounting the value and dignity of workers in our country and around the world must stop.

News Channels Keep Spinning The News

THE NEWS MEDIA KEEPS SPINNING THE NEWS by Ray Tapajna

Spinning the News is not new – The term Free Trade has been made to look as if it is real trade.  The globalist free traders point to things like protectionism causing the Great Depression when it was not even part of it .  The stock market crash triggered the depression and not protectionism.  The Great Depression was a money problem.  There was very little trade in the world at the time , since most nations did not have the money to back it up.  And you can not do business with people who do not have money.

President Roosevelt had the power to raise, lower or cut tariffs but nothing seemed to work. In the late 1930s, he said he was not going to let the lack of dollars stand in his way and announced the Lend Lease Program where products could be exported without being concerned about payment up front. This triggered the economy to produce products and food for the world market.  Then the war came and the process multiplied with the U.S. sending goods and food to the allies. This produced the most awesome industrial might the world has ever known.

The the free traders came and shredded the economy into pieces and exported our production to other countries for the sake of cheaper labor. Today there are many debates about the best way to proceed but free trader globalist hide the fact that free trade is not really trade. It is an economic system that divorces investments from production. It is about moving factories anywhere in the world for the sake of cheaper labor. Under this process how can the interchange of goods be called trade if the U.S. is getting goods from other countries that were once made in the U.S. with the only difference being the factories are in a different place.

The American people have been  had when it comes to free trade. It is not trade as historically practiced and defined. It is not about trading goods and services that one country has for something they do not have.  It is about exporting production for the sake of investments enjoying maximum profits and secluding the free market for only a few to enjoy.

Sadly, our newspapers and news channel act like network for the promotion of this economic process called free trade. The all tell the same story and hide the real story behind free trade.  They tell stories  about debating issues behind a process that really does not exist since free trade is just a term to cover this economic process. 

Spinning the news is not new.  – Read about The Savage “Huns”

Note how the following pertains to our times regarding recent wars and free trade economics.
President Wilson perhaps created the greatest “spin” control of the news ever and used the power of his office to enforce it. It led the U.S. into two world wars. The biggest problem came when he tried to turn it off but the spin was so powerful he could not. The allies through the League Of Nations boxed Germany into a corner.This open the door to the second world war.
In his “spin” Wilson put George Creel, a journalist, in charge of the Committee of Public Information. All news was funneled through this committee which included the secretaries of state, war and navy. Its purpose was to sell the war to the people initially and maintain and create the right attitudes.
Wilson hid the infractions of the British Empire and exposed as much as he could regarding the German infractions. His committee scattered literally millions of books and booklets around the world about the Germans being savage “Huns”.
Wilsonism even reached a small town in Italy where the likeness of Wilson could be found next to a favorite patron saint. From various government departments through the committee poured out mounds of information favorable to Wilson’s causes. Newspapers “cooperated” with the committee both in withholding material and publishing only approved stories.
The committee printed seventy-five million books and booklets which were circulated in the USA alone with additional millions sent out throughout the world.
The those days, there were no radios or TV and so the committee enlisted the services of 75,000 “volunteer speakers” known as the “Four Minute Men”. They appeared on stages and in motion picture houses in more than 5,000 different communities and they delivered a total of 75,170 speeches to an estimated audience, all told, of 300 million people. Only the blind and the deaf could escape the full extent of this propaganda spin. The cost of all this came from the government and other sources but the real cost was not in money but in the enforced sacrifice of independent judgment and intellectual integrity which is obviously reaching into our times as noted in the “spins” of President Clinton, President Bush and President Obama.

Free trade is supposed to be free of government intervention. Instead, government act as brokers and dealer in a global economy and established many rules with most of the rules leave out most everyone for the sake of a few.

Lebron James is not the merchant of Venice

This is our response to :

LeBron’s return worth millions to Cleveland, Cuyahoga County

The Plain Dealer
 

by Andrew Tobias – 1 day ago – Ed FitzGerald: LeBron’s return worth millions to Cleveland, Cuyahoga County. LeBron James. LeBron James is worth millions to Cuyahoga .

 
The sports, gambling and for the most part all entertainment industries do not represent any real economy. The core of the money flow has to come from somewhere else. Most of all the above do not create new money or recycle the economy.  And most in some way  are  also supported or were funded in part by taxpayer money.  Also things like alcoholic beverages are actually a money source for government too. This means people pay taxes on consumption. This in essence is a tariff.  It is about money going around and around without ever creating any new money flow.

 A real value added economy has about five stages of added value from the raw product level up through about five levels of added value to the retail or end user level.  All parts are need to recycle any real economy, Otherwise the money is moving from place to place with no added value and perhaps even as a lost to the community as a whole especially when people are spending money they do not have to spend on extracurricular activities.  

 Also, the coming of the Republican Convention is funded mainly  by  money flowing from government sources including taxpayers

Furthermore sports stars like LeBron who make money on endorsements from corporations like NIKE live off the suffering of others. NIKE shoes are made by impoverished and underclass workers.  

 It is OK to enjoy all the extracurricular events but there is not a way a for society  survive this way. The fall of Rome with all its gladiator and colosseum events prove this to be true.

It is really all about you in the global economic arena

See on Scoop.itFollow Ray Tapajna Living Journal in the Global Economic Arena

Ray Tapajna‘s insight:

Free trade is an economic disease. Pres. Franklin Roosevelt said, economic diseases are highly communicable.  In essence, when we shop we affect a vast number or people. A good economy is as local as possible in a balanced geopolitical setting where a community can share in all the rewards of making or growing something. There are at least five levels of added value from the raw product going  through refinishing processes , distribution etc up to the retail or end user level. If any of  these levels are missing the added value goes some where else in the world. It is not there to recycle the economy for the best for the community.

 

Free trade is a disease because it transmit the least possible return for labor and workers. Free trade is about moving production from place to place for the sake of cheaper labor.  With more than a billion people in the world who are willing to work for practically nothing in the free trade process, the economic disease transmit poverty and not prosperity.  The value of workers and labor is deflated and degraded. This value should be an added value for all in a society.

Instead, a new working poor class has replaced the production worker middle class.  There is also a vast unreported underclass who are living in an unreported silent depression. The economic disease has reached a point where the working poor and the underclass can not even afford the cheaper imports because their value has been degraded to a lower wage value . The investment community thrives on this because they are divorced from production and can make money on money no matter where the production is in the world. The value of workers and labor represents trillions of dollars in value lost forever due to free trade.

 

However, our economy based on making money on money instead of making things is burning out too. President Obama had to bail out big money, the investment communities, banks, wall street an the "too big to fail" corporations. They received a vaccine for the economic disease but it will not last long enough for any real change to take place. The free trade economic disease keeps spreading and spreading.
