Ancient Greek mythology assures that the Gods do not smile on hubris.
Imagine the hubris indicated in this TIPP/TPP item given that earthquakes are increasing due to the Fracking companies; that lead-laden water likely damaged the brains of several thousand children in Flint, Michigan; that Fukushima is still a high tech radioactive, fire-breathing dragon emitting deadly emissions across the globe; and that more and more previously pristine preserves are being turned into lethal Sacrifice Zones.
With evidence of all of the above and much more, the plutocratic overlords argue for this (in secrecy, of course, while demanding that young men and now women give their lives in pursuit of so-called freedom and Democracy):
"3. The end of the precautionary principle.
“The precautionary principle, enshrined in the EU Treaty, is not mentioned in the chapter on Regulatory Cooperation, nor in any other of the obtained 12 chapters. On the other hand, the U.S. demand for a ‘risk-based’ approach that aims to manage hazardous substances rather than avoid them, finds its way into various chapters.”
Human, animal, plant, and mineral life are all cheap to these deciders.
In a just world, they’d be put into Guantanamo and the Innocents let out.
