Peter Drucker in one of his best books postulated that Government had taken control of the institutions in modern society that were once free entities a few hundred years ago.
Institutions which were powerful and important for their members were shadows of their former selves.
The Universities were bought, the churches subsumed, the public service, the legislature, the army, you name it government controlled it.
Except one. Business.
Only the communists stopped business and what a success that was.
A supermarket brings 0ver 25 thousand items to its shelves for your choice
and yet the loonies mock the market.
Everywhere the Government is in charge of food the people starve.
