I remember a discussion about the Standard Oil monopoly and the government's attempt to muzzle it. Standard Oil lost their monopoly control when Texas oil fields, which Standard Oil didn't control, came on line. So it was the market, not the Interstate Commerce Commission, that tamed Standard Oil.
I scream bloody murder about the ideological purge led by tech monopolies. Our options are almost as limited as Kansas farmers in their struggles against the Union Pacific. Again, it was the automobile, not the Interstate Commerce Commission, that provided the options.
I'm sure somebody wants to make money in the conservative marketplace. It just sucks waiting for them.
Too true. The Corporate-government IS the problem. They get along far more than we think they do. Both Demicans and Republocrats collude with them in different amounts at different times. They want us to think they are two different parties so they vote differently... yet the agenda keeps inching its way forward. After 9/11 it started getting a little more obvious, and with stupid-vid, uh, I mean the China flu, no, wait, I mean Covid-19, they've really ramped up their plans to a fever pitch.
Things are going to get REALLY interesting around this globe of ours. Are you ready for the fun?
