'But I want to note a new element in the toxic formula: anxiety among economically precarious people over globalization and trade deals. Look at a Trump rally; it’s like a pastiche of all those undereducated white guys who used to have decent jobs in the factories that were (often literally) dismantled and shipped elsewhere after "free trade." Early on they may have bought optimistic predictions about the deals but they've lived with the results for almost 30 years; they’re devastated and furious — at those Mexicans, not the dealmakers. Now there’s a trans-Pacific trade deal which (rightly) further fuels their fears.
The European Union is free trade writ continentally. It has various bloodlines but it’s been hijacked by neo-liberal globalizers. In the name of their dogmas they’ve shredded southern (Greece, Spain etc.) economies; scared the eastern countries (Hungary, Rumania …) and antagonized Germans and others in the north who think they’re subsidizing lazy Mediterranean layabouts. Anti-EU right-wing, xenophobic parties like France’s National Front profit from these economic blows to ordinary people and then glory in the panic over refugees. Not only are those foreigners coming for your jobs, they'll kill you in the bargain.'
"What’s also strange? The most humane voices speaking for refugees are often also supporters of the trade deals that will brutally destroy jobs. Barack Obama speaks eloquently on immigration — and relentlessly pushes the TPP. EU boss Jean-Claude Juncker has admirably tried turning back the anti-Muslim tide. Even Justin Trudeau, apostle to the world of Canadian tolerance, is caught in this thicket, with his declared love for (en principe) trade deals like the TPP. I don’t think these contradictions simply expose their hidden economic agendas; I think there can also be genuine fissures in individuals that get out of control."
"Canada used to be at the forefront of the fights over free trade. Lately though, says a longtime comrade in those wars, we’ve become a bit of a backwater. Still, Justin Trudeau should give some careful thought to both the upcoming Pacific (TPP) and Atlantic (CETA) versions. If just saying No seems unthinkable, he should at least give them a serious shake, before signing on."

'"They figure out what are the likely behaviours. If you shop at a certain store where other people who shop have declared bankruptcy you became a higher risk. If you go to certain neighbourhoods, if you live in a certain postal code," she said.
"If you say certain keywords on your social media page — innocent words that you wouldn't think twice about using. The word 'wasted' for example. If that's used on your social media profile, that's a trigger, because it apparently indicates certain risky behaviors."'
'"Apps can gather basically anything that's on your phone or any device your phone is attached to. They can tie into your contact list, the content of your tweets, your email, your texts, your camera, the microphone," Polsky said.'
