As usual, Bob Rideout’s post is instructive and illuminating.  I would just like to add that the people displaced by these other jobs are in many, if not most cases, unqualified for them.  They are left behind, abandoned.  These are the people who made up the rapidly disappearing middle class that made our economic engine roar.  What happens to them?  They are so disillusioned that they voted for a man like DT.  What happens to us as a nation?  What happens to us as a people?
