    Except nothing helps a big corporation more than new regulations and laws that eliminate competition. And no, companies do not want to be the state.

    So we have a choice. We can strive for good government and good private sector, OR we can strive for no government and bad private sector because you're worried about bad government and bad private sector. That is not a logical position.

    In a game of no rules the most powerful player will dominate hopelessly. Its not a mistake the game monopoly was created during the depression.

    But the government is not good, it is the government. Governments have killed hundreds of millions of people at the very least on purpose. And your false dichotomy is of course false.

    You subscribe to the notion that government cannot be good. That is your problem to be worked out privately.

    I heard about this today. And with a right-wing SCOTUS, I don't see it getting overturned on appeal.

    All the reason to move servers out of the U.S., which people have already been doing for years. VPNs are going to get very popular.

    The U.S. is no different than China now, thanks to this ruling.
