Politics and Business as a Game of Chicken
Right now, the only way we can end big government is if we end big business. However, big government without business results in dictatorship, and Big Business without government control results in plutocracy. It's like a game of chicken. Of course, both drivers can avoid mutual destruction or individual loss by agreeing to drive the same direction. That's what seems to be happening now. Big business + big government = fascism.
Alas, at this point, I have no idea how to achieve the distributist dream of small government and small business, short of the two crashing, so things can start all over, or a simultaneous carjacking. Either way, it is doesn't look good.
