The really rich don't do it for money after a certain point: they do it for power and control.
And then they use this power and control to impose laws that allow them... to make more money.
These crusty politicans have no idea how the internet works. Sad, really.
Actually the only ideas they may have is about how to be (re)elected. Hopefully they are often plain wrong about this too.
If you do something right once, someone will ask you to do it again.
