A racket – what it is actually about – is known only to a small “inside” group of people, the very few.
They are getting ready for another war; they take over new territories.
Why shouldn’t they? It pays the highest dividends.
Regulatory capture; accompanies the racket: a regulatory agency (created to act in the public interest) advances the commercial and special concerns of the interest group that dominates the sector it is charged with regulating.
Political parties (created to secure responsible government and to execute the will of the people) are used to further serve the purpose.
They stitched up the political system.
They are out for a ride.
All for the best say the entitled, the connected, the stakeholders, the investors and profit-takers.
