Today I heard a Noam Chomsky piece on the establishment of American Oligarchy

The subject of this piece is neoliberalism, the underlying political philosophy animating oligarchical control of society. It's not a natural inclination, it's a premeditated plan that stretches back for decades, to the implementation of University of Chicago Economics Department theory applied to South America i.e., Chile, Argentina, etc. in the 1970's. See also Naomi Klein's book, "The Shock Doctrine."

Yes, Bayrock LLC and its subs, five of which are trump properties "managed" by Felix Sater

Thousands of counts of mail and wire fraud are coming.

That's the only way capitalism is viable as economic theory/policy

It is totally dependent on the lower classes being denied their own means of self-sufficiency.

Exactly right

All this "tax" bill does is speed up the rate of surplus value extraction and as a consequence artificially accelerate the boom-bust cycle of capitalism.
