Any system ruled by humans, no matter how perfect in theory, will be ruled by greed. It is difficult, though, for intellectuals to see themselves in the ranks of the greedy, as members of the unenlightened. Once they see themselves as enlightened it is easy for them to imagine an authoritarian government in the hands of similarly enlightened people – Plato’s philosopher-kings.
Purveyors of the democratic illusion assure us that sophisticated conspiracies and powerful secret societies exist only in the mind of paranoids and extremists. Their assurances are a lie.

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

Corporatism is fascism. Corporations, under the guise of the free markets, private property rights, and political independence, but for their subservience to the markets and shareholders have, in most cases, become tools of the Deep State. Then there are, of course, the technology and social media giants that have been wedded to the State, hidden or otherwise, since their founding. Impregnated with the seeds of the criminal CIA/DARPA/ covert power these platforms primary purpose is to undermine the essential cords in the fabric of America society. They are succeeding.
