With a policy that pits farmers against each other. // And money buys you (Wall Street) career politicians, not representing your constituency (voters, people of America) instead you (Career Politician) bank that cheque from your regular corporate lobby representative.

Disenfranchised & Price war. // The perfect, crazy, too good to be true, idea - will crash eventually (accumulating wealth with little to no input [see stakeholder theory/shared economic interest/long-term views and interest!]). // Start-up Lesson/Advice: "cost of choice" & paying computation with advertising = corruption (Google, Facebook &Co) paying (Wall Street, short-termism [Fast Food]) for micro-management of your life, of your choice. = U loosing free will. //
