To choke those small business down and make the costs too high to operate independently. They'll have needed capital to deal with the oppressive government and slowly buy many if not most out even if it takes one of those bizarre land lease building own deals and just jack the rent above plausible income and then let it rot.

Or they will provide needed business and offer you a deal that compromises either your vision or the way you operate and serve other customers and eat at things that way.

They'll throw crime at you. They will find tiny things to keep you in court all the time. They will raise questions, just innocent questions using their influence if you threaten their cash flow.

They will put health care out of reach and if they must allow it withing a stretched out arms length they will do it in the most invasive and uncomfortably as they can for ever piece of copper they can extract.

They will make certain crucial kinds insurance tough to get and harder to maintain.


In short they will do everything they can to pull the ladder to prosperity out of reach of as many as possible without stopping the flow dead because the moment that plausible deniability is gone is the one when the "small people" get serious about pulling stuff down rather than dreaming of climbing up.

That's probably why lotteries got so popular to spread the free market gospel to more people as ready opportunity to those willing to work was dismantled.
Now lil Ricky down at the trailer park can get as pissed about his future wealth stolen away for welfare queens and furreners as Travis the small time electrical contractor. If the power brokers are lucky and can keep the message out in all forms of media then you might even hook some destitute minorities!

Everybody is just a winning number away from having to give up half their long over due money like they was Tiger or Johnny Carson getting a divorce and to give it to some not shit bums.

Just a winning number away.
