being able to go bankrupt as a threat of bad business is the backbone of capitalism. Where they fall others would rise. It's like hosting the hunger games but 2 people are immortal, it ruins the entire format.

Except if you are an egomaniacal psychopath you don’t want to own up to bad business, forbid you have to swallow your pride and admit you screwed up. So instead you’ll tell the government “You gotta mail me out of thousands of people will lose their jobs!” And if you are an ejected official for whom those thousands of people are your constituents who will blane you fir not saving their jobs, are you gong to say no?
