And should the said experiment ever make money, it will more than probably be in the very long term rather than the short term. The sad truth is that pure innovation and business have conflicting goals. Now, the problem with conflicting needs and ambitions is that only one side can be right. At least over here in the West. Eastern countries like China have much less problems with this type of opposites. But in the West, the corporate side is often the sad victor in the innovation war: certainty wins from unpredictability, revenue from opportunity and the short term from the long term.

Ours is a toll-booth economy, unchallenged by any major party, in which companies which have captured essential public services — water, energy, trains — charge extraordinary fees we have no choice but to pay.
And still they want more. Through a lobbying industry and a political funding system, successive governments have failed to reform, corporations select and buy and bully the political class to prevent effective challenge to their hegemony. Any politician brave enough to stand up to them is relentlessly hounded by the corporate media.
