Re: Ology of Terror IV

Well, the prophet of leftism had this to say about protectionism versus free trade.

[I]n general, the protective system of our day is conservative, while the free trade system is destructive. It breaks up old nationalities and pushes the antagonism of the proletariat and the bourgeoisie to the extreme point. In a word, the free trade system hastens the social revolution. It is in this revolutionary sense alone, gentlemen, that I vote in favor of free trade.

Karl Marx, Brussels, 1848

And every politician in favor of free trade thinks the same way. Even though they institute protectionism themselves. The target, after all, is the USA.
