Flashback to '98: The Narrow Gates to Misfortune

This cartoon, drawn in 1998, expresses my free market sympathies. The feds want your business to do well, but not too well. Microsoft is a prime example of that. What greater American success story is there? Bill Gates' little company has literally transformed the world and created heretofore unimagined opportunities for millions, yet he is constantly vilified by leftists and scrutinized by the government. I remain basically anti-anti-trust.

Monopolies are antithetical to "free markets".

Perhaps to your idea of how free markets should operate, but not to free markets, per se.

Also, in a true free market, rogue monopolies are almost impossible.
