You break all of them up, not just Apple. And you don't allow anyone to get that big again.
What about local governance? Confederacy vs federalism. States rights. Do you have any of that across the pond, or do you just call federalism the EU?

you gonna break up huawei, alibaba and tencent too? you’ve either turned this into a global imperial power fantasy or a kind of self-annihilation.

I don't think big companies should exist. They offer too many opportunities for corruption and too little accountability.
look, this is the stupidest thing i’ve heard in a long time. i don’t think i can do anything if this is what i’m up against.

i think it’s time for me to flounce. loads of good grime mixtapes here but i think something’s gone rotten. too many five pint nights and late nights at raves and eventually your frontal lobe starts to break down. it’s tragic to see really.

best of luck to the good and wise posters hanging out here.

I don't see what the problem is tbh. I never claimed it was a practical position to take and stated from the off that it was just a general feeling.

Beiser can't stand it when euros express scepticism of big business.

I don't get it. He just insulted me and made up a bunch of stuff about me being a raver and a drinker with a rotten brain because I said I don't like big business and think it's too susceptible to corruption. Granted it isn't a particularly nuanced take, but I never claimed otherwise.

i have a fantasy of settling into a low profile common job at huge company, going to work each day in a indistinct bullpen amid a thousand wide grid, rows and columns of identical spaces. performing some monotonous, undemanding job for which my accountability is abstracted through an impossible bureaucratic network that noone bothers to work out. there is a sense of liberation in it, a total surrender of myself.

It's because he thinks being a modern intellectual means taking business seriously and taking capitalism seriously and believing in it deeply and passionately. He thinks anti big business anti capitalist stances are juvenile and contemptible.
