I doubt it.
If any of the stories followed Rand's ideas about Capitalism then the
KS would be Anti-heros thwarting the good of industry.

suzuki may not have agreed with rand but his villains are godlike and heroic.

Now, see, that's sad, folks. Any even moderately competent troll here
would have reinterpreted the KS (either version, but more the 2040
than the original) *AS* industry, and their struggle against the
boomers (and Genom, by proxy) as simple wars for domination in the
market. A particularly gifted troll would then have posited the KS as
a protectionist Mafia-type organization, and speculated on their
future conflicts with the Yakuza and Triads.

"Nice disco you got here. Shame if a Boomer suddenly went rogue in
it."

I'm tellin' ya, trolls today just don't work like they used to. They
expect every damn fish to be handed to them on a silver platter. In
MY day, why... I oughta... oooh....

Heh, they're Miami Vice characters as heads of evil corporations and
mercenaries. In fact you could sort of consider the original some sort of
roundabout comment on drugs. Boomer users use them and see them as
essential to their activities even tho' there's a chance they'll go nuts and
attack their owners, just as a drug addict relies on drugs to make him feel
good and able to function even tho' there's always the possibility the drugs
will harm or kill them due to impurities, an overdose etc. etc. How's that
for reading a subtext into something? :-)

Although Quincey does need a broad brimmed hat and a feather.
