Forgot to mention that we would need to buy politicians, lots and lots of politicians. We would need them, not so they would pass legislation, but simply so they would find it in their interests to withdraw support from the Industry. Some few of them support the Industry as a matter of principle, to be sure, but how many of them would turn on the Industry if it were in their interests to do so? And how do you define the interests of most politicians? You follow the money, that’s how.
Call this a profoundly cynical plan in support of an idealistic end. I can live with that.
