If we were already most worried about the twin secret treaties TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership) and TTIP (Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership), the new revelations of Wikileaks about the TiSA (Trade in Services Agreement), another secret treaty negotiated by the big corporate lobbies and their political sockpuppets in the EU, the USA and 23 other states* can only add to our state of near-panic.
All these treaties are designed to be, much like the EU itself, true constitutions of the Western Capitalist Empire (NATO-plus), enshrining oligarchic privileges against the democratic will of the peoples, who are not supposed to be legally able to challenge them or their extensions. In all these constituent treaties corporations enjoy all rights, while citizens and peoples are denied them altogether: they are nothing but globalist corporate fascism, they are the legal pillars of a new more polished version of the Empire of Evil lead by the USA - or should I say Wall Street?
This is the Dictatorship of the Bourgeoisie that Marx and others alluded to. In our recent history, the class struggle in its various forms managed to force the partial humanization, democratization of this dictatorship, achieving conquests like universal suffrage, human rights, social services, etcetera. However in the last decades we are facing a dramatic counter-attack by the globalist bourgeois oligarchy, organized around the USA and its imperial structures (NATO notably) and these treaties are true legal obstacles set in the path of democracy and popular sovereignty, so you are forced, for example, to eat transgenics without even knowing what they are, so your city, region or state is forced to privatize public services, even against the common interest and implying loses for the public budget, so, in the end, the state and other elect institutions are forced to become vassals and tributaries of the global megacorporations of the ilk of Monsanto, Exxon-Mobile or Goldman Sachs.
Some would argue on "corporation" key but the reality is that all these belong to a handful of actual individuals and families, whose names may or not be known, who do form an oligarchic class, an elite subclass within the wider bourgeois class. These few dozens of mega-privileged vampires of the ilk of Rotschild, Rockefeller, Soros or Murdoch, control much of our planet and our lives (survivals should I say?) and are determined to increase even more their share of the cake, share that has only been growing and growing since the time of Thatcher and Reagan, when the self-control provisions established for the Cold War (the so-called welfare state, in which workers were allowed to get a slightly expanded share of the cake) were dismantled.
It is indeed a global class war, as Murdoch, as speaker of his super-class, acknowledged, adding that they, the mega-rich, were winning it. Of course that means that we, the 90%, the worker class are losing it and becoming totally disposable slaves.
Only the most determined class struggle ever can spare us and our children the horrible destiny that awaits under this ultimate dictatorship of the bourgeoisie, the horrible destiny that is already largely happening to us. This class struggle begins, as every struggle, with overcoming the denial phase and acknowledging that, indeed, we have a big problem, a huge parasitic cancer that may even destroy Humankind as a whole. It is happening now and we have little choice but to stand up and stop it.
