I do not believe either is properly called a monopoly. It is pretty easy to live life just fine without using either of them. And you do not need to be a luddite. There are alternatives to both. There are exceedingly few things I cannot buy both online or in person. There are virtually no services offered by Google for which there are not alternatives.

I feel like most of the bitching about them is done by people complaining on others' behalf as though they need to be the protectors of others. The rest of the bitching about them is done by people too lazy or unwilling to simply use alternatives which are generally easily available but perhaps not as convenient for one reason or another.

It's unlimited (well limited to the max the US can pull out of taxpayers) because they are government operations. Look at the seed funding and secret contacts involved in their creation and current government funding sources.

Simply put, Google and Amazon's monopolies are too big. The former is used for mass surveillance/censorship, while the latter recently bought themselves a foothold in the food supply. Both of them have CIA connections, so they practically are the government. And the biggest monopoly I can think of is the government itself.
