My question is about lifespan, but there could be others.

Why did Alphabet set up a structure of Class B to control the company forever and have it lsst forever even when they're gon?. All I remember from 2004 is Do no evil, and $85/share.

What are they doing now? Taking a Sabbatical? Creating a new company that goes into one of the areas Alphabet pursued, or ignored?

When they decided to leave, was it based on Google data, before March 23? Did they see anything that's been mentioned in the conference calls? Maybe I could listen to the last few.

I think it's a ripoff of the public shareholders, and it should have smoothly faded out after about 2024, or 20 years.

What is the outcome of Proxy Votes? High vote from others besides Class B? Compared to others, I don't even watch their quarterly conference calls, because the connection to engineering is gone, and all that remains is marketing and untrustworthy ads to milk the cow.
