    Have you just realised, cope on its been going on for
    years. Not only with technology but all sectors, wouldn't

    if so... you would have allowed the mill owners in the 1800's to keep the
    work back in europe and not send to the US?

    the west is the master of it's own demise..
    greed isn't good.. vision is

    That's hardly a valid analogy. Even if it was, justifying an act by the
    existance of a prior act does not necessarily validate it.

    > the west is the master of it's own demise..


    Yes that is unfortunately true.

    And it is pure greed that leads us to outsourcing. And a lack of vision
    that justifies it.
