I don't understand this meme that corporations are 'out of control'. they're doing exactly what they are designed to do: extract wealth. nothing has changed, they are not suddenly broken, you've merely realized you are a valid target and you're upset.

it's like that silly idea that 'crony capitalism' is somehow distinct from some other, wholesome form of capitalism in which nobody has personal agency/incentives or seeks market advantages. nothing changed there, either, it just became clearer who is winning.
