It appears that Issodhos' sole safeguard against the tyranny of mega-business and money power reaching intolerable levels is to end government subsidies to them!

Eliminating subsudies to "mega-business" has nothing to do with engaging in self-indulgent schemes for controlling "money power", numan. It has to do with taking away a factor that distorts the market, provides unfair advantage to some businesses and industries, and puts into the hands of pols a tool for fostering corruption.
