3. The political culture that serves such rulers.
We can't get this bill passed because the corporatocracy doesn't want it.
A type of government in which huge corporations, through bribes, gifts, and the funding of ad campaigns that oppose candidates they don't like, become the driving force behind the executive, judicial and legislative branches.

A system of government that serves the interest of, and may be run by corporations and involves ties between government and business. Where corporations, conglomerates, and/or government entities with private components, control the direction and governance of a country.
