Thanks for the glimpse of this world.  I wonder if the pressure on US workers could be reduced by free access to the uncensored Internet in the parts of the world where it is not available, such as by satellite transmission.  With more power in the hands of people in those regions, they would be in a better position to negotiate with their paymasters, lessening the price pressure on U.S.-produced goods and services.

The answer is yes, it probably would. And not just anywhere, but mainly in China. No facebook, no youtube, and maybe no google?? Quite a different cyber-universe, and controlled in ways we can hardly get our heads around.

But the access wouldn't necessarily increase the organizing, as that happens already. It would be about media exposure, which still has its limits in terms of political effect.
