Nah. The choice is: democracy with a chance of vampiric subversion - or - dictatorship with ghouls in charge.

break up monopolies like big banks, the big four accounting firms, google, facebook, youtube etc. There’s a well understood tipping point between business being helpful and problematic and it’s when they can use their size to stifle innovative rivals.
Yes, but do we know exactly where the tipping point lies? Is it X % of the market or what?

Yes, I concur. Just curious about where to draw the line.

In the sand. That way it gets washed away regularly and you can re-draw it somewhere nearer to your current preference... ;)
Some people call me strange.
I prefer unconventional.
