The new union, the American Society, created by Manhattan Island and the Dutch, is a secular society wherein the people are led to believe that it is the people that control their “government”. This ability of the people to control their “government” is accomplished, as the story goes, by elections.
But if the “government” is a corporation, then obviously the people do not and can not control their “government” as it is not a “government” but a company.
And if the “government” is a corporation, then that corporation, like all corporations, has owners/stockholders. So, where does that leave non-stockholders in relation to a voice via a vote?
