Most Europeans and Americans are still blissfully unaware of even the existence of the Transalantic Trade And Investment Partnership (TTIP), nevermind how it could impact their own existence. Here’s a four-minute, eight-second summation of many (but far from all) of the things that are wrong with the soon-to-be-signed treaty (told from a largely European perspective).
To have even the slightest chance of stopping TTIP from melding together the U.S. and European economies into one giant forced-trade zone where the giants of corporate America and Europe are granted the right to do whatever they want, wherever they want, whenever they want — and always at our expense — people on both sides of the Northern Atlantic must first wise up to its existence.What ruling class fascists were intent on doing in the 20th century (eliminating annoying capitalist forms of "rule of law" and "representative" government) using police state methods, ruling capitalist classes of this century have added another strategy to their weapons arsenal--transnational agreements such as NAFTA, TTIP, etc. It will have the same ultimate effect: corporations über alles. Because of the secrecy imposed on these negotiations, ruling class media are not informing us ordinary people about what is happening. Without media of our own, we are easy victims: passive, compliant, unaware, and distracted sheeple who will only wake up as they are led into the slaughterhouse of global corporate rule.
Of course, our masters are also maintaining the old-fashioned 20th century method of surveillance over what we say, write, or do, but they now have benefit of the sophisticated technologies of the 21st century.
