Used to be the Communist block.  But they got the capitalist religion and joined the 1st world, mostly.  We now agree to screw the 3rd world in the same ways, not opposite ways.  Menage a trois, but both from the same end.

Too much of the world is going to the robber barons on the 2000's.  It used to happen in nations, now it has gone international.  The sci-fi dystopia is becoming real and it is the mercantalists who will bring it.

In this case, you do know too much.  Rapacious mercantilism brought about the British East Indies company and the British West Indies company, and comparable corporations elsewhere.  That and Alexander Hamilton making the US into a capitalist juggernaut.

No, national mercantilism was one thing, and you could leave.  When it becomes international, where is there to go?

And besides, The Brits nor Hamilton weren't the inventors of it.

US dollar dominance is the continuation of British pound dominance prior to that.  The British pound got old and tired and is resisting a shotgun wedding to Ms Euro.

One of the psychologies of the Roman Empire, compared to prior situations, was that it was almost impossible to escape it.  Jews tried and failed, so we gave up and joined it ... as executive consultants ;-)

Logically, the Jews under Roman control should have just moved to Persia where they were more tolerated.  But, wait, their book said the dirt they lived on was sacred.  Dumbasses...

Smart Jews stayed in Iraq or Persia instead of going back to Judea, to begin with.  Some of us are still there.  Others would say that Persian agents put us up to ... revolt ... to use us to harm the Romans, a traditional Persian enemy.

Yes, we enjoy our freedom.  And are usually too few to oppress others, though like Hertz, we try harder.

It is un-Jewish to impose like that.  In fact, Orthodox Jews try to dissuade Gentiles who volunteer.  The first evangelical faith was Buddhism ... then Christianity ... then Islam.  Evangelicalism and monasticism came into Christianity from Buddhism.

Yeah, I almost joined The Ethical Society for a woman I was VERY interested in.  For honorable and permanent intent.

Generally you fall for someone's projections.  If they say I give to "The Society to Promote Childhood" you know they are a baby eater ;-(

That is an entirely different thing, as you should well know.  That's "astro-turfing"...
