The USA had an expanding and growing economy for most of its existence. When it needed more land and resources it took them from the Native Americans and the other European based governments on the North American Continent.
The Revolutionary War and the War of 1812 freed the new nation from its British. Freedom, however, was not enough. The ruling people in the USA developed the same greed driven desire to expand and take over other lands that their former British rulers had been obsessed with.
The personality of this new nation resembled the alien “Ferengi” people in the Star Trek TV series for whom profit justified anything.
When the borders of the new USA reached the western edge of this continent following the incorporation by statehood of formerly Spanish controlled California the Greed-Eyes of the USA looked west over the Pacific and south into Central and South America.
Meanwhile business within the new nation grew and its trade balances were balances for most years.
Imports and Exports stayed fairly even until the two World Wars. Then after WW 2 Corporate profits were used to build manufacturing plants in Asia and Europe, replacing jobs US workers fought to save in those wars. The government’s call for “Patriotism” was used to get bodies to fight the wars and tax money and War Bonds to pay for them.
Military personnel won the wars but came home to find that those companies which profited from their sacrifices sent the USA jobs to foreign lands to increase their profit margins.
These Corporations still show no loyalty to this nation or its working people. Their only consistent efforts have been to strip this nation of its wealth.
Through prostituted politicians the turncoat Corporations told working people they wanted too much for their labor. The Business people organized and conspired to strip workers of the right to organize and demand better pay and benefits from the same companies they had protected and built.
The workers were told they were “Un-American”, “Communist”, and “Greedy” while the Corporations which had been shielded from the Germans, Italians and Japanese did business with the former “Enemy” and laughed all the way to the bank.
There would be plenty of money to pay fair wages and benefits to USA working people if Corporate had half the national loyalty they want the working people to have.
Voters in the USA have been punked by the Corporations. The wealthy don’t have to vote because they own the politicians. In the last seventy years US Corporations became “Multi-national” and congenitally disloyal to their nation of birth. Multi-national really means “not loyal to any nation” and governments are just there to provide for the profit masters.
In the USA, the bought-off Congress and Presidents have installed Supreme Court justices willing to declare the Corporations are “people”. Human beings have been morphed into tools, much like when Slavery was legal. Tools have no rights and no inheritances. Tools must satisfy the master’s needs or be discarded.
Social and political smokescreens are used by the Corporate Pimps to distract the human tools while they are being picked clean. Today’s Corporate masters have no national loyalty, no religion, no ethics or morals. Deals are made between world-wide business interests with no regard for anything other than profits. Slave Master brutal tyrant leaders of dictatorships like Saudi Arabia are best friends with Presidents and Prime Ministers of so-called free democracies.
Only the wealthy and their primary political and military servants profit in today’s world.
Ordinary people of all races will not be free until their common needs and interests dominate both the business and political worlds.
