silpol on Richard Stallman Was Right All Along -
"Unfortunately your arguments turn around of own thoughts and sentiment and "people talk". If you turn to historical facts - AT&T split into several companies and forcing MSFT to decouple initiated in Europe (MSFT ignored it, pushed to court and lost, being forced anyway and also pay the fine for delays and ignorance) are good examples that if govt decided than it can push till achieved. Govts are essentially monopolies for violence, and even in modern world that monopoly had been not broken." ‎- silpol
