epiphany

Nov 25th, 2010 | Filed under Anime, News

I can’t believe it took me over 8 years to realize it, but I finally noticed that the GTO (Galactic Trade Organization) which replaced the GOTT (Galactic Organization of Trade and Tarriffs) in Kiddy Grade and Kiddy GiRL -AND are obviously parodying the real-life situation where the WTO (World Trade Organization) replaced the GATT (General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade) in 1995 (GATT commenced in 1948).

I was reading Understanding Power: The Indespensible Chomsky Edited by Peter R. Mitchell and John Schoeffel at the time. I need to read more books…

Note to Self: Compare the development of GOTT and GTO in Kiddy Grade and Kiddy GiRL -AND to the development of GATT and WTO.
