The moment is ripe.
We don’t want Starbucks dominating the coffeehouses of the
world. We don’t want bookstores buying other bookstores in other towns and we don’t want any Amazon.com shutting down our local bookstores or turning reading solely into an internet experience. We don’t want banks buying other banks, or banks buying corporations, or banks or corporations buying governments. We don’t want military contractors like General Electric buying up mass media. We don’t want Rupert Murdoch owning hundreds of newspapers and broadcast outlets. We don’t want some rich guy coming into our neighborhood and buying up all the property and local businesses for himself. We don’t want a few companies like Google or Apple or Facebook dominating global communications.
