End of lobbying confirmed, then legislation should be removed that benefits the larger established corporations and stifles start-up companies. That way the market will manage itself as the small guy can offer a cost effective solution free from endless laws and red tape that is unnecessary and costly to both services and jobs

No, this is an obstruction of the free market (it lessens competition and drives up prices) and a violation of the Sherman Antitrust Act.

a violation of the Sherman Antitrust Act

How is this a violation of the Sherman Antitrust Act?

I think you're confused about mega-mergers and the Sherman Antitrust Act.


The Sherman Antitrust Act is an antitrust law. Antitrust laws in the United States regulate the conduct and organization of businesses to promote competition and prevent unjustified monopolies (there are plenty of attempted mega-mergers that can be used as examples of unjustified monopolies).


"Mega mergers" are often anticompetitive in nature therefore the action of preventing mega-mergers is an action that comes as a result of antitrust laws (such as the Sherman Antitrust Act)Read more

the government is the result of the mega merger. Fascism is when the government and business crawl in bed together. We, our parents and most of our grandparents have only experienced Fascism.

this is a trick question; we already have sufficient anti-trust laws in place to prevent monopolies; the media blitz is not altruisticaly revealing that the current attempt at a merger is simply being put through the paces of those very same anti-trust laws. so in this case "the government" is actually doing what it is supposed to

Having a large share of the market is fine as long as the buisness in control is being conducted ethically and does not make major moves to deny others into the market.

The Market should be an unlimited sea of businesses, big or small and not be controlled by The Government or Mega Corporations. The market shouldn’t have limits based on Government control by The Government or who you can do business with by Mega Corporations. If caught doing business with illegal organizations , businesses or terrorist groups the business itself cannot get in to automatic legal trouble but will be heavily questioned by the people and Government. Said Business can also be effected socially by citizens & other businesses based only on morals and ethics. Now businesses doing business with illegal organizations, businesses or a terrorist group with the evidence based intent to harm others especially innocence will be automatically legally punished.

Companies should be able to control as much of a market as they want, as long as they follow strict regulations.

@925X3VSIndependent from Illinois answered…4mos

No, but the government should regulate and control companies close to a Monopoly, so they don't dominate prices

@8ZXWF2KLibertarian from Texas answered…4mos

No, just enforce existing anti-trust laws to ensure fair competition

@8ZX8V6C from New York answered…4mos

No, the government shouldn’t interfere with the free market and we already have sufficient ant-trust laws in place.
