When the Left Was Right About the Global Economic Elites
The film, we read, tells "three stories of immigrants who left their homes in Bolivia, Haiti, and the Philippines after global economic powers devastated their countries, only to face new challenges in the United States," and these stories "raise critical questions about U.S. immigration policy in an era when corporations cross borders at will."
One can read from this blurb without even watching the documentary to see how the discourse has shifted on this topic in the last fifteen years. Then, "the global economy... forced people to leave their home countries." Now, the same "global economic powers" that "devastated... countries" somehow empower people to "cross borders at will" like corporations. The same "global economic powers" who were the villains in 2001 are now in 2017 the heroes, empowering migration and diversity while the villains are anyone who questions the goals of "global economic powers."
These "global economic powers" have, to borrow the terminology from my leftist days, "co-opted" the issue brilliantly with "diversionary tactics." Today, even to question the vision of http://www.conservapedia.com/George_Soros is beyond the pale of polite discourse.
