Companies use regulation to create monopilies to drive small business and at the expense of the consumers.

Our country is falling apart. Prepare for the worst.

i agree that big business and big government are potentially dangerous consolidations of power and need to be overseen by a vigilant citizenry.

however, "Our country is falling apart. Prepare for the worst." is too negative for my tastes. one of america's great strengths is our unflagging (albeit occasionally excessive) optimism.

stay positive y'all. if we work together we can weather this storm.

kumbayaaa my lord! kumbayaaaaaaa!!

Very Happy

PS- i didn't actually watch the movie you posted because i'm at work.

Serious question - do you see this as an effect of the disappearance of the middle class in the US?

followup - aside from Jeffersonian yeomen, was there ever sizable middle class in the US that wasn't a product of New Deal type policies?
