But muh free market. It irks me that people keep spouting shit about how completely free playground for immoral corporations would fix all problems on our societies when stuff like this is staring at your face when that shit dribbles out of your mouth.

The government used to break up monopolies and companies that have gotten so large, that they've otherwise cornered a market. It's a shame it doesn't do that, anymore. Pharmaceuticals and tech would be the first two sent off to the slaughterhouse. Media corps would be a close third.

Could you imagine if the auto industry got split up? Or fuck it, something as seemingly benign as food conglomerates. Unilever, Kraft, Nestle, etc. God, I have a diamond in my pants, just thinking about it.
