I had anticipated, in a region filled with extreme capitalistic ideas, that the votes for the merge would outweigh the votes against it. However, the fact that the votes were more or less balanced really intrigues me. Perhaps it's just my relatively isolated viewpoint (being Australian and all), or maybe it's just the fact the most exciting thing going on down here at the moment is that we've had 5 different Prime Ministers over the past 5 years.

I thought otherwise. Most Capitalists here enjoy competition, as it brings down prices, and making two competing companies such as those wouldn't do the average person much good other than in overall coverage, but possibly not price. That's just my way of thinking, though.

Go Away Progressives wrote:"Competition Policy" or "Anti Trust" is based on a series of myths. For example, Standard Oil was NOT ripping off customers - it was not customers who tended to complain, it was other companies who charged HIGHER prices for INFERIOR products. Preventing a couple of mobile telephone companies "merging" (by agreement of the actual people who own the shares) will not help customers - it will help the existing dominate "player" in the mobile telephone market who does not want these two other companies to merge (for fear that they will be able to challenge its dominance).

Government efforts to use "competition policy" or "Anti Trust" to reduce prices or improve products have a poor historic record (UNLESS the government gets rid of existing monopoly privilege that it itself created - for example the special privileges that were once given to AT@T which were withdrawn when it was broken up some years ago).

However, there may be a case for government intervention when companies are trying to their economic clout for POLITICAL purposes - for example denying people service because the company does not like the politics of a person. This has spread from Social Media to such things as bank accounts and payment processing (leaked documents from Mastercard reveal a political agenda - and there are only two big payment processors in that field, Mastercard and Visa).

A few years ago I thought all this was a non-problem - because I did not believe that profit seeking companies would fire employees for political opinions they expressed outside of work hours, or (still less) deny service to customers because they did not like the politics of these customers. We seem to be heading towards a People's Republic of China "Social Credit" system where people are excluded from economic life if they behave in "incorrect" ways, or express "incorrect" social or political opinions - accept that in the United States (and the West in general) this system is not going to be enforced by governments, but rather by "Woke" Corporations dominated by SJW managers brainwashed in the universities to believe that such things as Freedom of Speech and Freedom of Conscience are BAD.

I say again that only a few years ago I would have been utterly astonished by all this (would not have believed it could happen), but it is starting to happen - and it is a clear violation of basic Civil Rights. If this is allowed to develop such things as the First Amendment will be meaningless - it will be "sure you have Freedom of Speech and Freedom of Conscience - but you will not be able to get a job, or have a bank account, or even buy food" especially if we move to a "cashless society" as Mastercard and also some of the big banks want. If cash gets squeezed out (by Corporations and Governments working together against it) and people are not allowed to use electronic means to pay for things if these people have "incorrect" political or social opinions - then dissent will mean death-by-starvation.

There must be an end to discrimination against employees based on peaceful dissent they express outside of work hours, and there must be an end to discriminating against customers simply because a "Woke" Corporation does not like the peaceful political or cultural dissent the customer has expressed (in their private lives). One of the great arguments for capitalism is "the shop that sells you your bread does not care what your political or social opinions are", and that is starting to be undermined now. This is very much a Civil Rights matter.

Preposterous muscle contortion, albeit alas.

However, wouldn't the new absence of a company entice others to fill its place, therefore creating more competition in the long run?

Possibly, but considering that the two companies now take over a market that already didn't allow much new competition with one bigger company seems to decrease competition.

We seem to have the opposite problem in Australia; there are broadband companies popping up all over the place despite the continued reigns of Telstra, Vodafone and Optus.

Privatise public spaces and monuments. Who wouldn't want to visit the American Capital, Vodafone®-on-the-Potomac, read some inspiring citations at the foot of the Gazprom™ Memorial (ft. Abraham Lincoln), bask near the Mitsubishiⓒ Reflecting Pool at the aptly-named Mall™, before grabbing an RV and driving half-way across the continent to view the freshly sandblasted faces of Mark Zuckerburg, Jack Ma, Lakshmi Mittal, and Bill Gates etched into Google® Mountain at Mt Rushmore over those old government shills they used to have up there, and drive a little farther west to take in the geysers and wildlife at BNP Paribas™ Presents Yellowstone Park?

Who's up for a Road Trip? I'll bring the Dr Pepper™ and Coors®!!
