: Right the problem is that competition, due to economies of scale, monopoly, externalities etc. doesnt exist on the national scale so some people think this can be remedied by removing barriers to allow international competition. I can see how that would be the case temporarily until there where winners and losers like on the national scale and the new aristocracy stood triumphant once more.

Why is there and end state? It remains dynamic always. Todays winner isnt tomorows by default.

: And that makes it alright? Now I know your more moral than that, if simply because you should be able to empathise with these people in conditions of labour you'd find unacceptable and they can't just get a different job.

I know what would happen if legislation were encated to try and force change.

: And that is good? I can't understand this, I've heard this from gloating capitalist and the "our hands are tied as hell" socialists, no you arent either so I'll ask you again is this good?

Its what would happen. You have been speaking about what is real.

: Which I think justifies the call for international global regulation.

How so? Beyond the 'negative' protection of individuals
