where the "deep state" really is, look no further than entrenched
industries with money to spend on buying influence.


I've been wondering if corporations are replacing national governments
as the prime agents of power, just as democracies replaced monarchies.


I seem to remember that as far back as ancient Athens people with
money faired better in the political system then "po folks". In Rome
the Census divided the population into 6 divisions determined by
wealth. In the English army it required personal wealth to be an
officer. Not because of any regulation but rather that the cash
outlay, Mess fees, laundry, servant, etc., was more then an officers
salary.

In short, money does count.... and corporations have a lot of money.
