Every public policy should be put to a simple test in a politics against monopoly: Does it enable insiders to corner the market on opportunity and voice? Does it reward the already privileged and entrenched for being privileged and entrenched? If so, unwind it. But put aside policy. Every act of power in your own civic life, individual or collective, should be put to a similar test: Are your actions meant to get more people onto the economic and political playing field? Or to protect those who today dominate the game?
