    Google Vision Opposes AT&T as U.S. Looks to Sell Spectrum

    The one way to assure market dominance is to lock up a 'basic input'. That was understood since Chinese port city fish merchants colluded to control the supply of that 'raw resource'. It was true when the steel barons, railroad barons, Russian oligarchs etc. took control over their fields. Balance.

    Balance is what is needed in a democracy and in 'free enterprise' that are as much ruled by the vagaries of control over the raw inputs than they are over the classroom theories of 'the esoteric terms like 'capitalism' or 'democracy'. 'Freedom' itself is an academic term until it is made effective through fair, reasonable, and judicious treatment. If the legal system, regulatory controls/government, or concentration of raw inputs place such a disadvantage or, correspondingly, a preference, for one group over the other, neither freedom or free enterprise truly exist.
