Most Ignored and Most Far-Reaching Supreme Court Ruling Yet: Anti-Trust Law Hollowed Out

At this rate, I'm pretty sure this Supreme Court would not agree with the breakup of John D. Rockefeller's Standard Oil monopoly back in 1911, which ironically at the time, showed that the broken-up parts were immediately worth more in total than before the breakup. Of course, the real object now is political control, not simply more "worth." The powers that be, the plutocrats, want everything in the hands of vassal fellow billionaires ready and willing to censor all opposition.

A major Supreme Court ruling, Ohio vs American Express, was completely ignored by most media outlets, even though it will have potentially devastating repercussions for consumers in the so-called 'platform economy': Uber, Lyft, AirBnB, Facebook, etc. White collar criminologist Bill Black explains the consequences.

It appears to me that we've reentered the age of serfdom: laissez-faire corporatism Uber Alles.

Anyone who votes the lesser of evils anymore is wittingly evil. As far as I'm concerned, it's full-fledged democratic socialism or nothing. In other words, to Hell with Democratic Blue-Dogism and incrementalism.
