Globalism is a force that can not be reversed but can be managed better. America gave up its manufacturing base too quickly at the end of the 20th century. We have to keep making stuff in America.
We’ll never be able to make everything, so global trade is necessary and has benefits. Positive actions in recent years have slightly pushed back against our over-dependence on trade. As we see the ships piling up outside the port of Los Angeles, it is another sobering reminder of our dependence and vulnerability to the rest of the world. A strong America is good for the world.
