Beware State-Directed Globalization

Kevin Carson's latest Vulgar Libertarianism Watch is a definite a must-read. It's another badly needed warning that globalization in the context of corporativism (state capitalism) is not what it seems. I'm reminded of something (who else?) Richard Cobden wrote:
[T]hey who propose to influence by force the traffic of the world, forget that affairs of trade, like matters of conscience, change their very nature if touched by the hand of violence; for as faith, if forced, would no longer be religion, but hypocrisy, so commerce becomes robbery if coerced by warlike armaments. ["Protection of Commerce"]
