Without the TPP, America's reengagement in Asia will be purely military, increasing the chance of conflict. Withdrawing from the TPP was a stupid, stupid move.
Yes, I think that in most human societies marking children’s birthdays and gathering with friends and family over food and drink are in fact important aspects of life.
