Dominance Games: Wealth and power

Dominance Games / Politics

It is very nice to be too big to fail.  It is a comforting thing to know that one has achieved a stature and an accession to power that makes ones survival vital to the interests of millions whether or not those millions like or benefit by ones actions.

Its very nice to be too big to fail.  Too big to fail and you can dictate terms, dictate agendas, frame policy, run the world.  Too big to fail and you have permanent protection from rivals and enemies….you have a stranglehold and a fear factor to use.  You have intimidation to muster, favors to hand out.  Size may be desirable to stave off encroaching competition but that competition is just a rival for more control over the powers you control.  Your size offers self protection, not protection for those over whom you lord power and control of futures.

Monopoly is the end point of unfettered capitalism.  Monopoly means the end of forces that can put checks upon those who strive to be great.  They win.  Their power need serve none but themselves.  Why promote the easy paths for those of extreme wealth and power to amass more extreme wealth and power.  Power does corrupt……absolute power does tend to corrupt absolutely. Why do we celebrate the openings to such outcomes.  Stifling power is not stifling competition or the pursuits of productive capitalists.

Dominance Games / Politics…..politics, news, commentary, analysis…. The dumb …… the honored creed. The rancid bastards …… the true…. the thrill…
