there could definitely be some multibillionaire corporations at the end of the industrial age trying to overthrow you, and rule the nation+
What if I’m the corporation
That’s a cool concept, you taking control of the planet via domination of the economy.
Well, that would sort of work, but you can’t really be overthrown, I don’t believe, though I haven’t reached the Industrial stage in the prototypes yet, so I don’t know what it’s like.
Anyway, how would it work? Would it just be they sprout propaganda, or would they do something else, like blackmail? Or extortion? How would this be implemented, especially if the civilisation is a hive mind, or an economy-less civilisation?
