26. Yes; but they are designed to protect COMMERCIAL competition, NOT
free competitition of IDEAS. Even if antitrust laws were enforced the way they should be, that alone would not go far enough.

We need the equivalent of antitrust laws, but designed to protect the marketplace of IDEAS.

Even more basically, we need to restore restrictions on consolidation of media ownership and to reinstate the Fairness Doctrine.

And perhaps above all, WE NEED TO PROTECT NET NEUTRALITY ETC. A.S.A.P. -- the internet which has been our salvation so far is already under SEVERE ATTACK.

Pls prioritize this issue. Knowledge is power; we are powerless if we don't know what's really going on.
