    Hm.

    I think you probably have a point there. Not sure about the details and nuance, 'cause I’m not that smart, but there is something there.

      It’s pretty simple actually. Big companies took billions upon billions of dollars in federal subsidies and grants handed out to them via taxation of the public, then when they got just about done building the thing they spent all our money on, they erected a nice shiny gate at the front and charged us admission. But not before bribing donating to criminals politicians to ensure zero competition or risk to their non-investment. It’s rampant capitalism defined.

      It’s definitely nuanced and like I said it’s sort of an “ehhh kinda” statement haha so your pause is warranted

        Oh, dang, that was civil and anticlimactic of us. Um…

        I mean:

        How dare you! This is the internet. You’re supposed to immediately call me Hitler for…reasons. This slight shall not stand. Expect a strongly worded letter from my emissary forthwith. Good day!
