Canada is being colonized by a Washington-led, transnational oligarchy. As with any colony, we are losing our political and economic self-determination and sovereignty.

We are increasingly a cog in an imperial apparatus of top-down control and exploitation, and our economy is being restructured to serve transnational-oligarch interests. Wealth and power is increasingly concentrated upwards into the criminal hands of domestic and foreign oligarch classes.

We are being driven like cattle by a "full-spectrum" apparatus of domination and control.

Synthetic terror events are engineering our consent to impoverishment, police-state oppression, and criminal, genocidal foreign-policy decisions.

We are supporting and inciting terrorism when we sell military armaments to Wahabbi Saudi Arabia. We are committing war crimes when we support and enable the neo-Nazi junta in the Ukraine, and when we support and enable ISIS in Syria. Writer Sharmine Narwani decodes the Syrian crisis here.

All of this passes beneath the radar of public awareness because the oligarch class has, increasingly, "full-spectrum" control: Corporate mainstream messaging is increasingly an engineered facade of lies, distortions, and omissions that furthers a pre-ordained agenda of permanent, globalized war and poverty.

Transnational corporate sovereignty deals are an economic arm of the transnational ruling class. Agreements such as the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) entrench oligarchic control and supremacy over our political economy through Investor-State Dispute Settlement (ISDS) clauses, mechanisms wherein supranational secret tribunals and appointed lawyers are the final adjudicators.

An article by David Korten, in Yes magazine, "A Trade Rule that Makes It Illegal to Favor Local Business? Newest Leak Shows TPP Would Do That And More," identifies and explains the impacts of the TPP, should it be ratified, using these headings:

Favouring local ownership is prohibited

Corporations must be paid to stop polluting

Three lawyers will decide who is right in secret tribunals

Speculative money must remain free

Corporate interests come before national ones

This predatory political economy creates poverty and disemployment in a myriad ways -- the TPP alone is predicted to cost Canada 58,000 jobs -- as public dollars are funnelled to the transnational oligarchs through privatization schemes, de-regulated exploitation of national resources, reduced taxes, and military expenditures.
