It is disingenuous to claim that monopolies are a myth merely because
they haven't existed in recent history.
Monopolies have been illegal for the past 100 years. And unlike many
other illegal activities, it's sort of hard to run a monopoly
Why not just say that retail nuclear weapons outlets are impossible
because no one can give you an example of one?
Would you claim there have been no anti-monopoly or anti-trust actions
ever (successfully) prosecuted under Taft-Hartley? Or that
Taft-Hartley itself is just entirely the product of deluded morons?
Actually, I suppose you would.
