Factories, surrounded by tanks and wires and troops carrying guns.  Inside, people working for dirt wages.  The t-shirts the people stitch, the baskets they weave and glue, the appliances they wire, are not to be enjoyed by them. The products are shipped overseas to the country the troops call home, though they haven’t seen it in a very long time, and there are sold at rock bottom prices. 

The lower classes in the homeland, many of them the relatives of the troops, stand in long lines and sometimes hurt each other to acquire the products, believing that their lives are enriched by the addition of incence, softer sheets, faster appliaces and artificial flowers.  And they are glad to have saved a few dollars.
