CETA-or how Politicians betray us
translated by Franz

„On the 25th of September, the EU and Canada want to ratify the 
free trade agreement CETA. The content of this 1500 page document 
has only been published recently. No wonder, because just like with 
TTIP, the negotiations were carried out in strict exclusion of the public 
and without parliamentary oversight. Just like with TTIP, the treaty 
guarantees the corporation’s access to 500 million customers in the EU. 
And just like with TTIP our country could face lawsuits and compensation payments in the billions, because CETA gives the corporations also the possibility, to sue countries like Austria in supranational courts. 
The international investors only have to allege that local laws 
“disturb” their business too much.” (….)
“Major US corporations already have their headquarters 
in Canada, others like Fast-Food-Giant “Burger-King” 
would only have to officially transfer there and would 
automatically benefit from the agreement. If TTIP can 
be politically hindered or not, would not be of  
any consequence anymore.” 
(Dr. Tassilo Wallentin, Kronen Zeitung 9/14/2014)

Here a genuine piece of racketeering of our Politicians looms! 
For five years, in secret and unnoticed (or did you know about it?) 
by the public, CETA was negotiated between the EU commission 
and Canada. Now the complex treaty document of 1500 pages 
has been presented. That Politicians can understand the legal 
jargon is out of the question, for that most of them lack the 
necessary knowledge and also the time to read the document. 
The vote on September 25th 2014 determines the tempo and the 
treaty document has only been on the table for a few days. That 
does not foreshadow anything good. While some higher-ranking 
Politicians publicly speak out against the US free trade agreement, 
some more, others less, one lets CETA enter through the back door. 
“Catch the thief” is the motto, while one – cleverly and 
boldly – rubberstamps what one pretends to be against.

Fact is: Our Politicians do not want to perceive 
reality and no longer are able to do so! 

Even though the overwhelming majority of the European citizens 
are against this kind of “free trade agreement”, it is pushed through
with all force. If CETA or TTIP, these treaties are directed against 
the citizens, exploit people, lead countries into bankruptcy, and
cement the status and power of global corporations.
This is of no concern to our Representatives, otherwise 
the silence and inaction related to this issue, which is of 
vital importance for generations, cannot be explained. It is 
totally insignificant, if this indifference is based on ignorance 
or stupidity.

Because this behavior describes blatantly obvious the steadily 
increasing political Hubris (Hubris (/’hju:bris, also hybris, from 
ancient Greek) means extreme pride or self-confidence. When it 
offends the Gods of ancient Greece it is usually punished. Hubris
is usually perceived as a characteristic of an individual rather than
a group, although the group the offender belongs to may suffer 
consequences from the wrongful act. Hubris often indicates a 
loss of contact with reality and an overestimation of one's own 
competence, accomplishments or capabilities, especially when
the person exhibiting it is in a position of power. Wikipedia) 

Apparently the whole leadership elite of the 
political establishment has been captured by it.

How this ends can be easily predicted 
from the history of mankind: Revolts, 
overthrow and the removal of these 
incompetent and self-addicted “People 
Representatives”, because:

„You can fool all the people some of the time, 
and some of the people all the time, but you 
cannot fool all the people all the time.“ 
Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865), 
16th President of the United States of America
