Remember when governments would help small businesses because mega-corps don't need help?

Breaking up these behemoths is fighting the symptoms not the cause.
There is a fundamental issue in the fact that a company is something that can be sold or acquired by other entities.
Same goes for intellectual "property" or trademarks in the sense that they can be acquired my monetary means at all.

casual reminder America already has all the legislation it needs to deal with these problems, that it has already broken up monopolies in the past for using the exact same vertical integration tactics streaming giants are now, and that it has killed far more powerful corporate titans like Standard Oil

Literally all that has to happen is the American government decides to start enforcing its own laws again

Power
Water
Oil
Farming
Pharmaceuticals
Warfare
Prison systems
Mass transit
Environmental protection
Communication and broadcast infrastructure

All monopolies, all government regulated, subsidized and controlled.

Private interests, lobbyists and former politicians line up to take a slice of the pie.

Of course not mass media, at least not directly.

Though the Heyes code and McCarthy did their best to control it, and Fox panders, they are still probably, mostly independent, right?

To be clear I still think companies should be profit driven but the entity that represents it should not be allowed to be "traded" in the traditional sense.
The stock market would still exist but you could only invest not acquire.
I would limit the maximum amount of stocks a company can ever issue to 49.9% of it's value so this still can be enforced.
The core principle would be something like "You can't sell a concept"

With the sole exception of Netflix all four of them are indeed definitely as genuinely evil as Monsanto, Exxon, and Bank of America. I really have no idea why anybody keeps pretending they are somehow more "progressive" or friends of the so called left in America. They are all completely fucking evil and I wish nothing upon them but plague and smallpox just like I do with Walmart. Not the lower class people getting shafted, which of course these companies horrifically abuse and then get shafted as the punching bag for peoples well justified wrath at companies and they don't even get rewarded for their service.

I'll say it again I hope all the people ruling these companies catch smallpox and die.
