    Provides a leaping point for a broader discussion.  

    This part, though makes me sad:

    There are obviously legal and regulatory ramifications to such a business plan, which is why I say we need more people going into business and financial majors specifically for the purposes of destroying treasonous businesses and attacking the financial behemoths that enable them.
    This is true.  In an age where companies look to become these "terminator" companies as you put it, only market upheaval really upsets them.  The problem is: once you cross a certain barrier of profitability and cash on hand, the amount of investment it would take to create market upheaval for them them becomes farther and farther out of reach for any competitor.

      playing by the same assumptions of business they operate under, but a Terminator corporation doesn't live in the same headspace.  It's not really a business - it's a weapon.  Two businesses competing with each other for the same market share will avoid certain tactics because it's "bad for business" to get into a tit-for-tat situation on those terms, but a weaponized company doesn't care.
