I can't help but to think the Olympics would have been a MUCH more interesting affair had they been held here. I'm guessing Russia would have taken gold, home turf advantage and all :)

In all seriousness. Corporate imperialism has been a growing problem since the depression era. Capitalism is evolving into something different. I mean, it still involves capitalists, but it functions more like Mercantilism now. We also have digital empires in the form of platforms - and I don't see how these can effectively be broken up with how politics and economics currently work. There are systems that can work, since ownership of unbreakable corporate entities can still be broken down by its shares.
