A monopoly only exists if it prevents competition from entering the market. Monopolies only exist because of the government
Standard Oil prevented other companies from entering the makret
That's simply not true
This argument is getting really circular
Lots of people pay more for "made in America" products. If I lived in a white ethnostate I would buy products made locally
If you could afford to
This is a great article as well
If you discover a way to make a product 100x cheaper than the next competitor, and you keep that production method to yourself, you're monopolizing the industry
Yeah I feel like we're seeing diminishing returns in this conversation
If I lived in the 1900s and had the resources to buy land & dig for oil, how would the Rockefeller prevent that?
You wouldn't be able to sell the oil for enough to make it worth your while
Offering you a ridiculous sum of money to not do it and give you the oil
And what Fevs says. Your prices could not compete with his in the first place
You would not own the timer companies, the truck companies. etc
If it can't compete then he deserves to have a 90% market share. It's what the consumer wants
And from there he can exploit the consumer
Without any recourse from the consumer
Government is the only recourse
He holds that 90% market share until everybody else is driven out of business
Between Apple and Samsung, they probably have 90% market share on smartphones . There are alternatives but they have this massive market share because it's what people want
Then skyrockets the price
Then it becomes profitable to compete again
But the barrier to entry isn't something easily achievable
He owns every step along the process, if you try to open up just ONE step of it, you'd have to use his company right?
He mines, transfers, and refines all his oil
Say you just mine it
He could charge you out the ass for transportation and refinement
White Americans would be mining our own oil if Obama's government didn't prevent the keystone Xl pipeline. Instead we give our money to Muslims, because government forbids otherwise
That's a modern example and issue caused because of government, not a lack of it
That's not a response
America produces over a third of our oil
Another third is provided by Canada and Mexico
That seemed extremely off topic
"Ultimately, the state is a tool. Whether it is good or bad depends on who is using it and for what purpose. The American government isn’t evil because it’s big and bloated. Imagine what this monstrously large institution could do in the hands of good men who care about the future of White people. Practically all of our ills could be cured in record time.
Individualism is a loser’s strategy in life’s game of survival of the fittest. Even for a cynical observer, it is indisputable that teamwork (and thus cooperation and empathy) are superior to individual effort: if might makes right, two men with sticks are mightier than one man alone.
The enemies of our people want us weak. With Marxism, they make us weak individually so that it matters not if we unite our forces. Through libertarianism, they insure that the strong among us stay isolated rather than uniting their powers and posing a threat."
As you said, we are going in circles about standard oil.
1. If he is selling it less expensive than the competition, then the consumer wins
2. If all competition goes away and he jacks up the price, competition will arise again, and the consumer wins
Also I like how you say "Obama's government"
We must abandon foolish notions of “objectivity” if those lead to our destruction. “Freedom” is no different from “tolerance”. We all understand now that tolerance is not a virtue if the thing being tolerated is evil (bad for our people and against the natural order). Likewise, freedom to commit evil cannot be considered desirable. All that matters is freedom to do good. Today, we are not free to do good, because all laws are inverted by our enemies. Wishful thinkers long for freedom, thinking ‘well, if we were totally free at least I could do the right thing’. This is a compromise. Instead, we should long for total victory, where the only freedom is freedom to do good (meaning, what is good for our people). Our enemies certainly don’t cheer for the freedom to do what they don’t like, and neither should we.
As if he was the one in control
Kombat, the state isn't a tool, no more than rape is a tool
Let me ask you guys something. Marxism is a 100% tax on your production. What is a 70% tax?
