What we need is monopoly breakups but online. But we don’t see them anymore irl. Power consolidating has been the trend for a while.
This is the major problem with “the free market decides” because beyond a certain level of power anything can become “as if” a govt itself.
The thing about govt-like free agents is lack of accountability. Theoretically, a govt should have _some_ sort of accountability to the people under its wings. But a govt-like free agent like a corporation only has to answer to themselves.
“Shareholder value” is mythological.
Add regulations and lawsuits and that just adds things for them to avoid but doesn’t affect them much.
