Ideals are very important to the shaping of society.
In fact, that are more important than bombings or armies or guns.
And this is because ideas are capable of spreading without limit.
They are behind all the choices we make.

Fighting for liberty with ideas makes more sense to me than
fighting with guns or politics or political power.
With ideas, we can make real change that lasts.

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 through which this is achieved is known as investor-state dispute settlement. It’s already being used in many parts of the world to kill regulations protecting people and the living planet.
