The Cross of 911 Tangle of Terror- Who can untangle the terror free trade and globalization has bred


 Ray Tapajna

In my advocacy for workers dignity , the common good, local and value added economies and the real free enterprise system, I  have described the folly of free trade economics in several way.  To point to the reality of it.  I have called free trade a nightmare and other things like it being an economic disease and economic cancer.  In my advocacy, I explore the latent response of religion and philosophy to the global economic arena.  Lately, I have called free trade a sin. I thought I was perhaps pushing things too far.  However, after reading about Bishop Oscar Romero who was murdered while saying mass in 1980 by a military officer who graduated from the School of Americas where the U.S. trains South Americans to support "security" in Central American and other South American countries.  Pope Francis took a ban off Romero's beatification  and now he is destined to become a saint in the Catholic Church.  After reading more about the debates around the ban , I now call free trade economics structural sin.  And here's why in my response to a friend who reviewed a book about the dark side of our world today.


I am currently studying "structural sin" with Bishop Oscar Romero being beatified. Pope John Paul wrote about it and Pope Francis removed the ban of Romero's  beatification due to debates about his being a part of Liberation Theology. In 1980 Romero was shot through the heart while saying mass by a military officer who was a graduate of the School of Americans.

The reality of Salvadoran society forced his conversion into an outspoken, confrontational leader who directly attacked those who perpetuated what he called “structural sin:” “When the church hears the cry of the oppressed,” Romero wrote before his murder, “it cannot but denounce the social structures that give rise to and perpetuate the misery from which the cry arises.” If Romero was alive today, he would recognize trade coming TPP trade deal  along with the broader, disastrous policies Washington is pursuing in the

The Mexico-Central America-Colombia security corridor, as prime examples of “structural sin.”

The day before he was killed,Romero said,

(How easy it is to denounce structural injustice, institutionalized violence, social sin! And it is true, this sin is everywhere, but where are the roots of this social sin? In the heart of every human being. Present-day society is a sort of anonymous world in which no one is willing to admit guilt, and everyone is responsible. We are all sinners, and we have all contributed to this massive crime and violence in our country. Salvation begins with the human person, with human dignity, with saving every person from sin.)

In the debate about he being a martyr, some say he was killed for political reasons and not spiritual. This points to the very essence of the duality and  division between the day of worship and the rest of the week. Political life can not be divorced from our spiritual life. The darkness surrounding us as you review seep into our souls.  And  this is why  I now call free trade economics structural sin. Someone has to stop the sin of living off the suffering and our economies based on discounting the value and dignity of workers in our country and around the world must stop.

Ray's journals foretold the coming our economic crisis years ago based on several experts including Sir James Goldsmith who wrote THE TRAP and Manuel Castells who predicted the coming of the Bewildered New World as it is today. There were others like Chuck Harder, host of For the People who with Dr Pat Choate and well respected journalist J.D. Cash foretold the story in the early 1990s

The core of our economic crisis today can be traced to 1994 when President Clinton pushed the passage of the elder President Bush's free trade program which included NAFTA and GATT trade agreements. They were passed by a Democrat controlled Congress which joined hands with Republicans Rep Newt Gingrich and Senator Bob Dole. Commentators like Rush Limbaugh who had a very large following locked hands with President Clinton in promoting the passage of both NAFTA and GATT. GATT was passed in a Thanksgiving Day vacation lameduck session of Congress after the Contract with America Republicans won the election and were due to take over in January.
Soon after, President Clinton had to rush billions of dollars to Mexico to save the peso and the Mexican economy. NAFTA had proved to be a completely failed program with millions of Mexican fleeing their country seeking economic survival in the USA.

This was a sign of things to come. It was the first stimulus package except it went to a foreign country. Later President Bush, the second, initiated his economic stimulus package. When this was being debated in Congress, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke told Congress that the best way to stimulate the economy was to buy "domestically produced goods."

This obviously came too late and it is still ignored by many globalist free traders as the cause of our economic crisis. Our economy based on making money on money instead of making things is burning out. President Obama followed and bailed out the big money interests who caused the crisis and put them back in charge.

The U.S. has suffered the most massive dislocation of jobs in its history. A working poor class and an underclass now reside in a silent depression and there is no base to support the needs of our society. Many who are still working are homeless or need government assistance to survive as the tax base gets smaller and smaller
