    Even if the British vote for Brexit, it won’t be allowed to happen. Do you imagine the EU is run democratically or something?

    Brexit and Trump supporters have one thing in common … they want to travel back in time to undo globalization and make things “great” again,

    Sure, if only we could return to a magical time when everything was great. By a coincidence, it looks exactly like a time when I was young and taken care of and ignorant of the real problems outside my view.

    Good point.Of course the racism/xenophobia part of the issue is troublesome, not just to liberals but to all who think that freedom should lack a color bar.

    " … I thought liberals were supposed to support the working class."I’m not a liberal or a conservative (trying to separate them makes no business sense) and I deal with realities not political ideologies! We cannot travel back in time to undo globalization.The explanation of globalization I was taught in college decades ago involved exporting units of labor at the current US wages so that the other country could — ala Henry Ford — afford our goods, but the corporations decided, why bother … better margins right away; no waiting.Now one by one the countries we outsourced to are experiencing wage inflation — going to automation — and the advantage of outsourcing for cheap labor is disappearing.

    Because it’s a moot point. AI is going to kill jobs faster than globalization ever could.

    Just figure out how you want to deal with it. I will point out what some of YOUR guys are thinking about: http://reason.com/archives/2013/11/26/scrap-the-welfare-state-give-people-free
