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.
