Only the people behind it do, especially the powerful and rich ones. They have every right as individual “natural,” God-made “persons” that you and I have … even more since they are rich and powerful, if you know what I mean. I struggle not to begrudge them that, after all, the Lord said, The rich you will always have with you … sort of. It has ever been so; nothing new under the sun.
So why do they need to increase that influence of theirs exponentially by means of the money their customers entrust to them in good faith while making, in most cases, apolitical “consumer” purchases? Why indeed?
And why, with extra privileges and “rights” that We The People have supposedly freely and graciously, Sovereignly bestowed upon them? Why indeed? What are they up to, and why should we “trust” them?
Why do they always want more, and more, and more? Fool us once, shame on you. Fool us twenty times … shame on us.
