You might have a point. However the oligarch's goal is exactly that you stay at home. That you are denied freedom of movement, while they enjoy Earth's resources. They have no actual need for your money. They just want you to remain in debt.
I mean, they're all clearly bought and paid for so why don't people try to get together and play ball? Just be like, "umm, we'll give you 50 million if you do the right thing". And then the corporations / robber barons or whomever is paying them off wouldn't be able to match that without being obvious so they would take the 50 and do what the people wanted instead?
Yes, no, maybe?
