And the US isn't happy.

The United States found itself isolated Monday at the United Nation's cultural agency, with even traditional allies like Canada in the opposing camp over a proposed pact on cultural diversity that the U.S. ambassador said could be used to erect trade barriers against cultural exports.

You'd think they would be by now. They just don't care.

CBC had footage last night of the U.S. rep going out of her way to scold Canada for it, too.

"This has been a very disappointing experience, both in terms of the process and the substance. This is not the way most negotiations go in multilateral international organizations," said U.S. Ambassador to UNESCO Louise Oliver.

The US doesn't know how to negotiate multilaterally. It's always their way or the highway. The US is finding itself on the odds with more and more peoples. Sooner or later, Americans are going to have to realize that they share the world with six billion others, many of whom do not share the corporatization of everything.
