On Poker and Capitalism

I’m about 10-years too late to the poker party, but I’m learning. You cannot win if someone at the table has 5x the value of chips as you (unless they make a serious mistake). They can just steal the pot, every time, and the suckers will just get bled out of the game hand-by-hand. Which is just like our current ‘democratic’, ‘meritocratic’, and ‘egalitarian’ version of capitalism.
