Those companies aren't the big problems, it's the AT&Ts and Comcasts of the world.

Like how 'Ma Bell' had to be broken up before, now they have to be broken up again.

That's the downside of Capitalism... late stage tends to be a little monopoly-ie.

The fucking Democrats in Hawaii are now calling for the repeal of the Second Amendment so they can seize everyone's guns.

They really are coming for our guns and if they do we'll give them the bullets first.

Anyway...this is a great idea. Anti trust laws are a cudgel that haven’t been used properly since the 90’s with Microsoft and before that, a longer time still.

They still haven't be used properly, as far as I am concerned.

Until they start to breach and track through private holding firms, both on and off shore, they will never get a true picture of ownership. (These systems are slowly coming into place, I am impatient).

I would put money down that less than a dozen people own large enough blocks to have undue amounts of control on the direction of most of the world's ISP's and ISX's.

Those laws were misused against Microsoft. Instead of breaking up Microsoft they tried to use those laws to stop Microsoft from giving away Internet Explorer for free. The Feds tried to argue that Microsoft could separate IE from the OS and they lost in court when Bill Gates humiliated them and explained that IE was simply the kernel being used to extend function to the web instead of just the file system.

Frankly, the results of that case made it harder to use anti-trust laws.

If it were up to me I'd go after WalMart and their predatory policies that target small businesses and small companies for destruction.

And millions of us made a living off those who just wouldn't stop using the fucking thing.

IIRC, the judgement was passed against Microsoft, but the case was dropped by the DOJ when GWB came into office.
