The Restraining Order Is Still Working Its Way Through The Legal System

Those of you who share my peculiar fixation on John Ralston Saul should check out his recent article "The End Of Globalism" (via Scratchings).

Mr. Saul's article is extremely well thought out and expressed. It is also extremely illuminating. If I were to be a little pedantic, I would differ from him on one point. He notes that economic theories appeal to human nature implying that they ORIGINATE from human nature or conditioning. I would contend that they have been SOLD to succeeding generations using their human natures. Thank you for the link, Jonathan.
As hon. leader of the JR Saul fanclub, Jonathan, do you think you would be able to prevail on Mr. Saul to identify whose "hidden hand" it is that is guiding things since it is not the "Markets"?
