Sleeping Through the TPP Coup: Why a Trans-National Corporate Power Grab That Hurts Almost Everyone Is Arousing So Little Outcry

This series begins by introducing the Trans Pacific Partnership "trade deal" scam and the undemocratic process by which its supporters are seeking to sneak it through Congress. After laying out some avenues for activism, I examine, from a social psychological perspective, the possible reasons for the current weakness of organized opposition to the deal.  Finally I propose some strategies for being an exception to these social psychological rules, and taking a more effective stand against this attempted corporate coup.


The series is divided into five parts.

Part 1: What is the Trans-Pacific Partnership, And Why Don't I Care?

Part 2: A Social Psychology of Anti-TPP Coordination Failure

Part 3: The Puzzle of "Liberal" Obama's Support for the TPP

Part 4: Pitting Fear of Our Complicity Against the Fear to Resist the TPP

Part 5: Battling the TPP with Enlightenment, Love and a Thirst For Meaning in the Face of Death
