I doubt the companies give a crap, as you say as long as payment$ are being made on the remaining balance on the cards (they don’t ever want them paid off )What I want to know is why the heck these credit card companies give a sh*t what people buy as long as they pay their d*mn bills?!?
“Various state actors” there’s the “who”
What I want is those INDIVIDUALS prosecuted for conspiracy to violate folks civil rights.
The companies would simply pass the costs to the consumers. The idea of a corporate entity “doing something” needs to fade. Individuals are driving this, throw them in the light.
