    The users were given an array of examples, they could've chosen Yeats, Byron or anything from the Western Cannon. But this did not happen. Because the choices they were presented with did not matter. What mattered was the market. And so in each instance the users voted for the cheapest available literature. And soon, it was the market that dictated how they felt and what they read and the corporation knew this. The politicians knew this too, but they too were powerless.

    lol. I was just going to get a digital copy of whatever won and share it with everyone, so once again the market has been chosen (or chosen itself) over the communal.
