It turns out that startups are Trojan horses. We think of them as revolutionaries when in fact, they’re the farm team for the establishment.
Very few make a profit. Or become standalone companies. Or ‘change the world’. Our toolmakers mostly make big business bigger.
They’re not changing the balance of power. They’re preserving it.
But then, who controls disruption?
The story repeats everywhere. In all geographies. And we the consumers are happy because..we get discounts.
As we huddle together, naked and exposed, the collective will re-assert its powers. People will be the counterbalance to monopolies that competition and government never were.
