It may be exhibited by favoritism in the distribution of legal permits, government grants, special tax breaks, or other forms of state interventionism

Fighting off entrepreneurs! Taking on any threat to their power! Collect ‘em all!

As knee slappingly amused as this makes me, I am also horrified that our corruption problems are so obvious now in our collective civil consciousness as to make searing satire of this magnitude possible and yet we continue to do nothing about it and even promulgate it.  Sadly, I laugh now at the thought of a revolution because it’s just never going to happen.  We wanted apathy so we voted it in.
