    Also, pass this link to all your near and dear ones. Thanks and cheers!

  2. Protesting the TPPA is showing you are uninformed, or choosing to be uninformed.
    You don’t understand, for the TPPA to work you need energy and resources to turn into crap people want to buy, you need consumers, you need global shipping, a breathable environment, basic law and order, a survivable climate. For the TPPA to function it needs everything that is fast disappearing.
    It is kind of wishful thinking and denial when people protest this thing, they are hoping there is going to be a livable future that a trade deal could effect, and they are denying the fact we are in runaway abrupt climate change now, and with all the positive feedback’s that have kicked in, nature is now producing more GHGs than human activity, if we all fucked off tonight it would make squat difference on what 404 ppm C02 has install for us, TPPA or no TPPA.
    But if you enjoy walking around looking like uninformed hope addicts, and its a nice day, oh and you can all gets lots of selfies, showing how much you care – then go for it, you will not make the situation worse, or better 😉
    Of course FJK and all the fools that are involved in signing the TPPA are just as full of denial and hope. Or pretending there is a future for the TPPA keeps the plebs happy just a little bit longer, as they kick the can further up the shit heap.
    The TPPA is similar to the high priest on Easter Island, suggesting placing a crown up on the heads of their statues would save the population from starvation, and cannibalism, and bugger my days, if the result will not be the same.

        • I think you deserve the penguin award for that last paragraph that refers to the TPP as similar to the high priest of Easter island.

          I must say. That’s the first time Iv seen those mix of words around TPP. Maybe you should stick to your obvious strength and write fiction work instead of trying to mix in non fiction as well.

          Hope that helps your career in writing
