TPP means nothing if you have a garden, solar panels, access to water and a great community of people by your side. But, on the other hand we cant all just leave cities, or can we?
NOPE, local building codes and enforcement officials will force you to get on the grid, get permits to build and pay taxes. There are PLENTY of posts on ATS showing that even rural communities are having to deal with this kid of stuff for the first time in 20 years.

Seems to me that the US is being run by the multinational corporations, and being taxed without representation.
I'm sure the British East India Company would have loved a deal like this.
Once upon a time the US would not have taken this deal. 239 years to come back to square one.
