This is pretty much the same case that Ralph Nader made in his excellent 2014 book, Unstoppable: The Emerging Left–Right Alliance to Dismantle the Corporate State. (Definitely worth a read.)
Perhaps you, Caitlin, were subliminally aware of Ralph’s book, or perhaps this is a case of great minds thinking alike. You’re both right and this argument needs to be repeated again and again.
Thank you for again making the case, Caitlin.
