A one sided partnership

Today, 13 November 2013, WikiLeaks released the secret negotiated draft text for the entire TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership) Intellectual Property Rights Chapter. The TPP is the largest-ever economic treaty, encompassing nations representing more than 40 per cent of the world’s GDP.
The TPP is the forerunner to the equally secret US-EU pact TTIP (Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership), for which President Obama initiated US-EU negotiations in January 2013. Together, the TPP and TTIP will cover more than 60 per cent of global GDP.
They will try to pass it as a commercial trade, but the trade has little to do with it, just the minimum part concerning the big Corporations.
If we want to define it in a few words we can call it as the succeeded coup to get the power, done by the few big corporations that already rule the world.
And if we want to define it with one word, we can call it Fascism.
The merging of political power and corporations is nothing else than Fascism.
That is why the discussion is done behind closed doors and in the utmost secrecy.

We thank you very much, Mr. Obama, but, honestly, I would rather prefer a friendly divorce between USA and Europe.
