Philippine American War

I highly recommend reading this post from the Belmont Club about the Philippine American war, and how it was finally conclusively won, almost a century later, by Globalization. Poor Philippinos worked abroad, and returned with more money, better English, and the ability to queue. The old feudal heirarchy was upended.

What can you do when your young people look over the border and find something they like better?
