  •  whether we support free trade or not is (0+ / 0-)

    utterly irrelevant---it's there and it's not going away.  It's like arguing whether or not we support the UN. Pointless.

    What we CAN do, though, is precisely what you suggest---force the free trade structure to include global standards for minimum wages, workplace safety, product purity and safety, environmental protections, etc.  Such a movement already exists--it's called the "Fair Trade Movement", and it is something that deserves every progressive's support.
