Protectionism Rising?

I am troubled by the by the anti-free trade signals being made by USGOV toward Mexico as documented by TDAXP.

I think the default view of many Americans (maybe all humans) is that of protectionism. I think our brains evolved in a zero-sum economic world, and while we are still evolving this is still la hard concept to shake.

I think this is demonstrated by the rising interest in so-called local currencies which I think is just another expression of a default protectionist PoV.
