Chomsky Says The Forthcoming Free Trade Agreements Are For Shit [Video]

One of the biggest global political decisions coming down the pipeline, after the presidential elections piss us all off, is the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and its prime target of giving corporations power to sue governments for getting in the way of profits. The TTIP/TPP are being marketed as globalizing agreements for everyone but if NAFTA was any indicator to how “globalization is good for everyone," then we’re looking at more outsourcing and even lower wages with higher rates for housing, health, food, education, ect…

And yes, both Hillary and Trump would support them without consideration for us.

Noam Chomsky hits it right on the head… “The so-called free trade agreements are not free trade agreements. In fact, to a large extent they’re not even trade agreements. These are Investor Rights Agreements."

I don't recall Trump being much of a supporter of TTP.

More laws won't make any difference. We need to actually pay attention to what's going on instead of watching reality TV like sheep.

I saw this a few weeks back and fully agree. We need laws against greed, just like we have laws against hate. We need to stand up and force these in, because the greedy will do everything they can, anger, 'greedy logic', and pleas to shut it down at every angle.
