Here’s an interesting take on what the TPP could be about.
Anyone at all curious about this Trans Pacific Partnership?
The fact that it’s all hush hush and secret like is making me very very nervous.
I kind of figured it might be about taking control of the internet. Because it’s our last bastion of finding out some truth and sharing of knowledge but it seems huge in scope and somehow I don’t think it’s gonna be one of those all cosy loved up let’s be friends with our neighbours and sell shit to each other, kind of deal trade agreements are usually about.
More proof that supposedly elected governments have been infiltrated by world order goons. Why would a supposedly left wing government espouse a policy that would in essence destroy itself?
Could this be why our governments have no teeth now to look after us, they are scared or coerced into submission by the threat of litigation from their corporate overlords?
Here’s an example of what it could mean;
During its financial crisis, and in response to public anger over rocketing charges, Argentina imposed a freeze on people’s energy and water bills (does this sound familiar?). It was sued by the international utility companies whose vast bills had prompted the government to act. For this and other such crimes, it has been forced to pay out over a billion dollars in compensation(4).
