I really do not have the time,energy or desire to read all the links....please post at least a paragraph or two for response purposes!
Seems they are saying that it's open borders season?
Community could mean abolishing corruption, socialism, and poverty in Mexico. It could mean abolishing socialism in Canada. Why would not the Community be lifted to US standards, rather than the US falling into socialism, etc. A North American superstate will not occur for a long time, if ever. But there are economic reasons why such a superstate could be very successful. By the year 2050, a North American State would have a population of more than 600 million (400 million of these in the US). It would have the technology, labor force, natural resources, and capitalist business structure, necessary to dominate world economics. Lanuage would be an issue: by 2050, two-thirds of the 600 million would speak English (with a small bit of French), while one-third would speak Spanish.
Not mine. I just posted a couple of the paragraphs from the article.
Right, I realize that. I messed up the quote thingy on the reply screen. Anyway, do you think that a North American superstate is necessarily a bad thing, as implied by the author of the article?
Since you asked my opinion, Yes. IMHO we have little in common with Canada as far as foreign policy goes, less with Mexico.
Yes, the foreign policies differ, but do you think that will be the case in the long term? The socialism in Canada and Mexico are disconnected from economic reality and destined for the economic scrapheap. In the coming decades, I think that there will emerge large economic units capable of competing with the US, e.g., the EU, China, India, etc. North America will be better able to compete in the future if its economies are integrated. The economic arguments favoring the integration of the EU are valid. The French will be ill-served in the long-term by their rejection of the EU. Now France will be less able to globally compete, compared to if it were part of an integrated EU with 600 million people.
