Some Revelations About The Trans Pacific Partnership

The following video is an excerpt from Democracy Now. On November 13, 2013 WikiLeaks released a 95 page document which is a portion of the highly secretive Trans Pacific Partnership or TTP.

Included within this trade agreement are rulings that would overwrite many of the safety protections, and environmental laws of both the United States and countries of the world.This agreement seems to be not so much an agreement between nations but between multilateral corporations and serves to grant them unrestricted freedom.

The video is a discussion between Bill Watson of the Cato Institute, defending the TTP and Lori Wallach, director of the fair trade group Public Citizen’s Global Trade Watch, who is highly critical of TTP.

I believe that this is an extremely important video to watch.

The full text of the 95 page document can be found

Why would a sculptor building an art center in the wilderness care enough about a trade agreement between multilateral corporations to post it on this blog?

The answer is because we are part of everything. And the results of that trade agreement, if ratified, will affect all of us including my insignificant self siting on a mountainside looking out over PsiKeep.

We life in an age where Goliaths  swagger  the earth regarding most of us as mere consumers.  And most of us are too busy and too desperate to look out at the bigger picture. I do not want to sound like a cassandra but any agreement made in such  secrecy as this one, without the participation of Congress, whose constitutional power is to make trade agreements, cannot be good. Something is very wrong with this picture.

I am posting this tonight. I will update this post as I go. Watch and judge for yourself  and of course comments are always welcome.

Note: A link to the Wikileaks documentary on YouTube and  released in reaction to the commercial movie “The Fifth Estate.”  The Wikileaks documentary is worth watching.

  1. This is the scariest… and if the TPP is accepted by countries around the world as law we can write off what little freedom and economic footing that the citizens of the world still possess.

    This IS the Great Corporate Takeover, veiled in mystery. Our elected are not so stupid as to not know what this is. Let us hope and pray that the legislators of the world still have enough humanity in their hearts to reject this evil plan.
