The gist I get is that the system is unnecessarily complex, but definitely can be boiled down to a simple question of who has the most money.
Money can get you behavioral experts who coach you to be the person the citizens love. Money can pay for surgery and haircuts. Money gets you signs, ad time, good directors and actors for those ads, and maybe even undercover actors seeded among the citizenry in an effort to persuade the unsure.
