    You miss the point. YOUR Gooferment says there’s such a thing as anti-trust. All of these “competing” business are in the same space. The Customer is being defrauded in thinking that there is a free market choice available. That’s a little L libertarian objection to Gooferment regulation. IT is a fraud as well.
