Hypothetical Monero situation


Hi there!
I was discussing Monero with a buddy who has not heard about it before. I am not expert at all and we debated about whether there was a chance for a government/corporation to effectively "take over" or control the network/value of Monero with enough money by bying up tokens.

How does Monero avoid a hostile take-over of the currency?

Is there a hypothetical situation where Monero could be toppled in this way by a government or corporation?

Sorry if this was supposed to go into r/Monerosupport but it felt like more of a theoretical question and that's why I'm here.

Thanks in advance for any answers.
