What stops LN from eventually becoming centralized?

I’m a maxi… But I’ve had a thought that’s bugging me. If one day I must use an LN node with more channels in order to be more confident my transaction has the shortest route possible, how does the network NOT become centralized over sufficient time?

FedEx became the beast they are by utilizing this centralized connection principle.

Can someone explain what forces resist this?
