Proud, I think they should. It's about being a monopoly.

I agree anti trust laws are far too weekly enforced. But not just tech, broadcast and print media. You don’t know why but wouldn’t like the results.

WOW! I could write a treatise on this subject, but will mercifully refrain. They ARE a monopoly and MUST be broken up! How and into how many smaller companies is hard to say. I would include Amazon with this. Unfortunately, they are deeply embedded in our congressional pockets on both sides of the aisle. Big Tech and Big Pharm OWN our government at so many levels. You couldn't separate them with a crowbar or a stick of dynamite.

We let media giants scoop up all their competition, leaving us with 3 parent companies controlling all but military bandwidths, which means, we can hardly chastise social media giants. Now, if we were to bust up all the mega corps to create a truly free market and spark healthy competition, I'd be all for it.

I tried to warn people what would happen if we allowed companies to become mega companies.
