A couple of years ago, Forbes reported that 400 billionaires owned 1/2
the capital assets in the U.S.
In the face of this, I think AP may have a problem with scale: How
many small investors does it take to redirect AP profiteers away from
targets chosen by factions among the ruling class, beginning with
anyone suspected of operating the AP infrastructure and/or promoting
it effectively to a wide audience of participants?
If an AP lottery is not "fair and honest" by allowing anyone to be
targeted regardless of occupation or etc., how long until ones that do
allow any human to be bet on appear, with inflated bounties on
perceived enemies of the ruling class?
Mind you, AP is a frightfully clever idea.
