The oligarchy’s trend in the 21st century is moving away from attempting to influence democracy by influencing voters, to constantly attempting (and often succeeding) at doing an end run around it all. The TTP and the TTIP are being negotiated with elected leaders, exclusive of the public in order to establish a trade code above the sovereign laws of nations.
