Jim, do you mind explaining what that gillespie guy is talking about? When gillespie says the 'free market' - what is he talking about?
His 'article' is kinda confusing. Have big fascist corporations like facebook, apple, amazon and all the rest become big because of how amazing they are and how well they serve the 'free market' ? But wait, gillespie says
"tech industry and the larger economy (both of which are already pretty heavily regulated, if we're being honest)"
So...the fascist companies he loves so much don't really exist in a 'free market' and so are not a product of the 'free market' eh? Furthermore, the mafiosi who run those companies approve of regulation - and they are the ones who created the companies, so why is gillespie trying to teach them...anything?
Maybe there's something wrong with treason magazine and their understanding of the 'free market'?
What do you think Jim?
