    those behemoths? Do the behemoths think so? These days for the US I'd say kinda/sorta and NO.
    Lately the questions I keep coming back to are how large can a country get before the residents stop paying attention? how purposefully impoverished before they rise up?

      the lackeys of the behemoths are invested in telling us that one or the other of the behemoths is much better than the other.  

      in the us, the government behemoth due to deregulation, the transfer of power from the government to the corporate sector and the government's willingness to perform services for the corporate sector, the government and the corporate sector have largely merged.  one can see that particularly in the military/industrial/surveillance sector - the merger is quite evolved there with the cia funding silicon valley.

      the us is more and more resembling the complaints that were lodged against the soviet union in us cold war propaganda.
