Progressives have to finally demonstrate to Americans that monopoly capitalism is not only, as Barry Lynn claims, “an ideology of darkness that erects institutions to promote more darkness.” It is a perverse way of ordering an economy.

The very group of people that wish to further expand the monopoly on force behind government power are going to do what now?

In this version there is no banker. To win the game you need to borrow money from the Fed, than use that money to lobby the Congress to further entrench your interests. The other players win by convincing each other the ‘monopolist’ player is evil and the people who wrote the rules are victims of the winning player’s success. Which ever player wins receives the title “progressive”.
