Thanks. I’ve always liked that piece by Melvin. It seemed like a good week to republish it.I really enjoyed reading about James Forman's overalls on NMWA @gdl203. It was history, activism, and fashion rolled into one. There's been very little escape from the pain and sadness of recent events. That's not a bad thing, not being able to escape forces reflection and the shedding of ignorance. You can't have unity without empathy. But it is also heavy on the heart and there are moments when you want to read something lighter. It's phenomenal content and worth a read.
Yeah I'm saying that the cost/benefit analysis for globalism isn't always complicated.I'm not sure what you're asking or implying. That globalization isn't nuanced? Or that I support the use of forced Uighur labor?
I think globalization is quite complicated and anyone who says otherwise -- whether saying globalization is absolutely good or absolutely bad -- is a polemicist.Yeah I'm saying that the cost/benefit analysis for globalism isn't always complicated.
And we should be awfully suspicious when the complications provide cover for internationalist billionaires.
I think it's pretty simple here.
That's one argument.And i understand the argument that sweatshop labor may actually be preferable to subsistence farming, and it's the first step towards modernizing rural communities in southeast Asia.
