    It's become really hard to find anything made outside of sweatshop conditions unless you make your own.  Entire industries have vacated the US and made their way to the slave labor countries enabled by so-called "free trade agreements" and lack of tariffs high enough to encourage domestic production.

    There already is class warfare in America. Unfortunately, the rich are winning.

      We overconsume by incredible amounts.  We can and should buy much less and be more carefull about what we do buy.

      Outsourcing didn't happen overnight, it won't go away overnight.  But we're not powerless.
