This comic uses some text from the Letter of Support for Quebec Students from Nordic Students. The letter is written by a coalition of student unions from Denmark, Norway, and Sweden.

UPDATE: The original version of this poster cited the above mentioned letter, and the Student Union in Finland was not included among the letter’s authors. That caused some confusion. The poster has been updated to include Finland, because it does have essentially the same higher education policy as its Nordic neighbors.

UPDATE #2: Since my posting this on DailyKos, this comic has been shared about a half-million times over two days. Here’s KOS founder Markos Moulitsas on the comic:

UPDATE #3: It’s been interesting to watch how many officials from the for-profit “schools” mentioned in this comic, and their law firms, have visited this site to view this comic.

UPDATE #4: This comic has now been shared over 2-million times across the Internet.

TTIP: A Global Ban on Left-Wing Politics



"The purpose of the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership is to remove the regulatory differences between the US and European nations. I mentioned it a couple of weeks ago. But I left out the most important issue: the remarkable ability it would grant big business to sue the living daylights out of governments which try to defend their citizens. It would allow a secretive panel of corporate lawyers to overrule the will of parliament and destroy our legal protections. Yet the defenders of our sovereignty say nothing. The mechanism is called investor-state dispute settlement. It’s already being used in many parts of the world to kill regulations protecting people and the living planet. [...] You don’t believe it? Here’s what one of the judges on these tribunals says about his work. 'When I wake up at night and think about arbitration, it never ceases to amaze me that sovereign states have agreed to investment arbitration at all … Three private individuals are entrusted with the power to review, without any restriction or appeal procedure, all actions of the government, all decisions of the courts, and all laws and regulations emanating from parliament'. There are no corresponding rights for citizens. We can’t use these tribunals to demand better protections from corporate greed. As the Democracy Centre says, this is 'a privatised justice system for global corporations'."

We are facing a crisis in the world, and sadly, it’s become the elephant in the room.
