The global corporate coup against local/national sovereignty is enshrined in the TPP, TTIP, TISA and the other alphabet so-called "free trade" deals. IF these deals are so beneficial why were they "negotiated" in secret by a large majority of corporate lobbyists and many public advocates generally excluded? IF these deals are about "free trade" why are so many chapters about corporate domination and control not trade? The "fast track" status proponants pushed thru Congress limited the ability to alter any aspect of these deals that will be shown/proves at odds with the common good or national protective, environmental, worker protection and other laws, especially regarding chemical and agricultural protections.
These deals are Trojan Horses to empower corporate greed and institute "legal" mechanisms for them to evade oversight and further global corporate fascism.
The following quote from FDR says it all.
"Unhappy events abroad have retaught us two simple truths about the liberty of a democratic people.
The first truth is that the liberty of a democracy is not safe if the people tolerate the growth of private power to a point where it becomes stronger than their democratic state itself. That, in its essence, is Fascism—ownership of Government by an individual, by a group, or by any other controlling private power.
The second truth is that the liberty of a democracy is not safe if its business system does not provide employment and produce and distribute goods in such a way as to sustain an acceptable standard of living.
Both lessons hit home.
Among us today a concentration of private power without equal in history is growing.
This concentration is seriously impairing the economic effectiveness of private enterprise as a way of providing employment for labor and capital and as a way of assuring a more equitable distribution of income and earnings among the people of the nation as a whole.
THE GROWING CONCENTRATION OF ECONOMIC POWER."
