Diamond Chess, the Berlin variant is almost like "normal" Chess, but the board is turned by 45° (white squares at the players side). The pieces are placed in the opposing corners, like shown in the illustration.
Players can't just reel off their trained openings, engines are useless.
The positioning of the board gives space for drinks and ashtray left and right of the players corner - very handy sitting at smaller bar-tables.

Google is a State-sponsored enterprise which can only have 98% market dominance due to Govt-granted patent-monopoly privileges (over 70,000)

Patents (& all IP) are anti-market, and anti-capitalist, as they are a violation of private property rights; IP protects artificial incumbents (probably started by the CIA's InQtel in this case) from new market entrants putting their capital in competition with them, and violate consumers' rights to association & choice

America's lassiez faire economics created affordable, high-quality retail healthcare for the masses for the first time in human history, & actuarial science

The AMA was a Govt-created cartel to destroy lodge medicine

If money is worthless, and citizens use barter, physical metals, cryptocurrency, and promissory notes to conduct transactions, and no longer use central bank currency, simply because it has been hyperinflated, the regime power disappears, because all control comes from the powerful river of central bank currency.
