Monopolisation in corporate libertarianism
I have a question about how monopolisation is viewed among libertarians, namely, is it a good thing that should be pursued or not?
While I share the ideals of individual liberties, I’m skeptical about corporate liberties. The way I see it, in completely unregulated markets, larger companies will eventually become indestructible monopolies that prevent competition. The consumers will then have to submit to whatever terms the companies offer. I think big tech is a great example of this. I see the capitalistic ideal of competition can paradoxically only be achieved if the market is somewhat regulated, that monopolies are punished and smaller competitors are supported by the government.
How do you see it, is competition the ideal to strive for or is monopolisation acceptable?
