    More and more power in the hands of big corporations is an almost inevitable consequence of capitalism as we know it. Competition always has winners and losers. Losers go out of business, winners acquire (semi-)monopolies and become "too big to fail"

    Well, let's start with the stupid and invalid premise that Wall Street or big business controls every aspect of life for everybody.

    First, this is not true.

    Second, it is only the corporatist Democrats who favor that end; it is they who have the large revolving door between Congress and Wall Street, and it is they who give corporations power over government activity by allowing them to write regulations, which are mostly self-serving.

    It's a sign of your lack of analytical ability that you try to blame conservatives for this quasi-fascist corporatist behavior by Democrats.
