I disagree that people in groups such as corporations act irrationally. The determination depends on your viewpoint. From their POV, they are looking out for their best interest: making money. Through your own statement, you have concluded that government is bad. The corporations are given power by the government, because the corporations make money. The government wants money for nothing. Government allows certain corporations to flourish so that those in government power gain from it. The government is the influence. Without government (or at least as we know it today), those corporations who would have tried to use your land that the GOVERNMENT said they could use would have to compensate you, if you desired, for you to move. Today there is no check on government and that is the problem. It is not the corporations who are seizing business oppotunities.
