NAFTA is outed as wealth distribution scheme for Big Business interests and not free trade

The Security and Prosperity Partnership architects of NAFTA seek to create a New World Order

by Tom DeWeese [Excerpted]

The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) was one of the first of the "free trade" policies to use the concept of so-called public-private partnerships as a major tool to drive policy.

The program was sold simply as a means to expand markets for industry and agriculture beyond national borders, thereby offering American (and Canadian) businesses and workers "better jobs, better wages and more exports."

However, NAFTA is not unencumbered trade. It represents truckloads of regulations. And there is no question that NAFTA regulations and guidelines are creating great change in the economic order of our nation.

NAFTA comes with its own tribunal overseers; its own courts; and its own set of rules - all of which can, in fact, override laws passed by local, state and federal governments. Such a policy is not "free trade," rather it is a new government structure - reinvented, indeed.

Here is how Henry Kissinger described NAFTA in July, 1993:

"It will represent the most creative step toward a new world order taken by any group of countries since the end of the Cold War, and the first step toward an even larger vision of a free-trade zone for the entire Western Hemisphere. [NAFTA] is not a conventional trade agreement, but the architecture of a new international system."

NAFTA, under close examination appears to be little more than a redistribution of the wealth scheme. Commercially profiting from it are a few select corporations, which get wealthy in their elite partnerships with government, while jobs are 'outsourced'.

NAFTA continues to be highly touted by "free traders" as a success. Thirteen years after its inception there are now more calls for similar programs to cover South America, Central America, Africa and Asia. The Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP) is designed to further enhance and strengthen the NAFTA concept over North America.

This is about the third time I saw the ideal of a private/public mergingof governments with business-isnt that like what National socialism was all about? On the other hand-many are very much against communism and socialism but surely this should not be seen as an alternative to those systems because they all become the same thing. Money concetrated at the top while we are to stupid tocare for our sleves so does at the top will care for us(which I would call economic slavery.)
