What I want to know is how you think we'd get to the point of just one
corporation existing to begin with. You're just presuming that this can
somehow magically happen. I'm saying it's impossible without some
aggressive mechanism (e.g. government) already in place and available for exclusive use by the would-be universal corporation.

C'mon, Joe, put some thought into it this time.
