Think about what laws and morals even mean:
We can't have a society based on just morality, because when you arrest someone for doing something morally wrong, they're going to say, "Who says what I did was wrong? Whose authority? I don't think what I did was wrong!"; How do you argue with that without essentially stating, "I'm right because I'm right and can enforce my will through violence"? While that threat of violence still rings true, when you argue from this point, you invite rebellion, constantly. We eventually (thousands of years ago) settled on a fairly basic solution to this:
We developed a framework of laws WITH the agreement and acceptance of the society as a whole. By living in that society, you agree to follow its laws and conduct yourself in an appropriate manner.
Tyranny within a society appears when the laws everyone agrees with, suddenly become laws that they, by and large, do not agree with. This is what we are seeing today. The laws being created, and the laws presently existing, have not kept up with the general concepts of morality that the citizens of the state agree with. People see these laws as unjust because they do not see the benefit to the society as a whole - in fact, it has become very obvious that these laws only benefit a select few.
Make no mistake - the TTP and TTIP treaties are tyrannical. They are kept secret from the citizens and passed without citizen input. The citizens are even ignored when they complain about the laws.
This is strong evidence that the US government, and the governments of the nations attending to these treaties, are dysfunctional. They no longer represent the will of their citizenry and have begun a slide into despotism.
For some nations, this can be handled and controlled by a totalitarian state - however, the US is unique in this respect: The citizenry is armed. The military chock full of individuals who are more loyal to their fellow citizen and the constitution than to the central government authority. The geopolitical enemies across the world many and varied - Russia would gladly support and arm texan revolutionaries. The infrastructure of the states is extremely vulnerable to sabotage. The cities most likely to stay loyal to the government are separated by vast distances and massive geographical boundaries like major mountain ranges or rivers.
What I'm getting at here is that I'm utterly flabbergasted at what the US government is doing, both at home and abroad. It's like US leadership has gone completely insane, they aren't just shooting themselves in the foot, they're tying the ropes around their own necks. I don't know what exactly the US leadership expects to accomplish with such one-sided pro-corporate, anti-citizen legislation like this, other than securing the eventual collapse of the US government as it loses the popular support of its domestic population.
