:hence they need to stay popular to stay on top.
Gee the natural result of competition for one of the parties is defeat, why would those "on top" not simple exploit economies of scale, barriers to entry, externalisation of costs etc. to simply kill all the competitors and then continue, as they are at present, without giving a damn about being popular?
