Waves of change are washing against the hull of the Western-dominated global order that has existed since 1945 – and the ship’s officers are denying there’s a storm.

Now that the US Administration owns a significant part of Chrysler — is that ownership a violation of the WTO accords?
Of course it is.
The government owns 80% of the company (and unconstitutionally took a majority stake to give to its favorite special interest – the UAW… your tax dollars at work subsidizing a failed […]
