It just occured to me that C Wright Mills might have influenced the thoughts of Nwabudike Morgan. Just consider these samples:

From Wiki:

Quote:
The Power Elite is an influential book written by sociologist C. Wright Mills in 1956. In it Mills called attention to the interlaced interests of the leaders of the military, corporate, and political elements of society, suggesting that the ordinary citizen was a relatively powerless subject of manipulation by those entities. The structural basis of The Power Elite was that the United States, after World War II was the leading country in military and economic terms.

The following is a quote from CEO Nwabudike Morgan's
"The Centauri Monopoly":
Quote:
And when at last it is time for the transition from megacorporation to planetary government, from entrepreneur to emperor, it is then that the true genius of our strategy shall become apparent, for energy is the lifeblood of this society and when the chips are down he who controls the energy supply controls Planet. In former times the energy monopoly was called "The Power Company"; we intend to give this name an entirely new meaning.
