Stop Calling the TPP A Trade Agreement - It Isn't
This is a message to activists trying to fight the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). Stop calling the TPP a "trade" agreement. TPP is a corporate/investor rights agreement, not a "trade" agreement. "Trade" is a good thing; TPP is not. Every time you use the word "trade" in association with the TPP, you are helping the other side.
"Trade" is a propaganda word. It short-circuits thinking. People hear "trade" and the brain stops working. People think, "Of course, trade is good." And that ends the discussion.
