Our governemernt has been ardent is supporting and insuring that “monopolies” in business are not the norm and will not be permitted, inorder to prevent price fixing, gouging and manipulation of marketplace. It’s a concept from an economic perspective that I agree with, wholeheartedly. It is the antithesis of government rule and socialist manifestation, supporting free market capitalism. Here- here!
Yet, many are still advocating the virtues of socialism. Go figure. Irrational? I think so.
Think of it this way, the monoploy of ideas is likely the most dangerous monopoly of all. Isn’t this precisely what socialism offers”?
