Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Transnational corporations today are not tied to any particular workforce, country, capital plant or anything else that gives them comparable interest in maintaining society as a going concern.

Therefore no one has a compelling reason to maintain any particular society so individual societies can confidently await shredding by The Market®. This may well end with which ever significant country that DID NOT buy into the "supremacy of the market" being the new hegemon, as the social basis of all others will have been destroyed.
