Coup from AboveTTIP and Democracyby Wilhelm Neurohr, October 1, 2015 http://portland.indymedia.org/en/2016/02/431701.shtml Free trade agreements serve geo-political goals. They are the "weapons," so to speak, in the global economic war. They produce a few winners and many losers. Critical persons see through this and rebel against "corporate rule" and against the dissolution of the primacy of politics by the primacy of the economy... Unelected trade commissioners prepare a coup from above - in a secret mission with hundreds of lobby organizations and transnational corporations. Our elected politicians should not be involved as accomplices and henchmen. Mammoth corporations have more power than emperors and popes ever had. TTIP is the final struggle. If TTIP passes, the crucial battle is lost.
