So Italian fascism opposes liberalism, socialism, and conservatism. Exactly how many aspects of fascism do you think we have as a nation?Italian Fascism opposes liberalism, but rather than seeking a reactionary restoration of the pre-French Revolutionary world, which it considered to have been flawed, it has a forward-looking direction. It is opposed to socialism because of the latter's typical opposition to nationalism, but was also opposed to the reactionary conservatism developed by Joseph de Maistre. It believes the success of Italian nationalism requires respect for tradition and a clear sense of a shared past among the Italian people alongside a commitment to a modernized Italy.
My point is simply that we have a spectrum of philosophies that make up our government system as a whole. Some take up larger parts, but none are pure.
I wanted to give you benefit of lack of real world experience before.
But now i am convinced that you are just a redneck and a physics undergrad armed with an Internet connection. Amusing combination I must admit.
Few but ripe.
Imagine this scenario. Take a business that's number 1 in the market for its product. While matching or exceeding its competitors product, It lowers its prices below competitors' prices once it has enough capital and cash flow to afford to do so. This brings it even more business. Eventually, the cycle can continue until the #1 company has a virtual monopoly on the system.
But even within the field of competitors, things are not so clear-cut. Competitors can be bought out. Markets can be saturated, making it very difficult for new competitors to come onto the scene.
Conclusion: A free market certainly does not prevent monopolies. There is only one way to prevent monopoly: have an elected, public government which regulates them. Not a perfect system by any means, but it's better than the alternatives.

and you think there should be a world government? Isn't that just another way of saying, "the entire planet should be owned by, work for, and obey a small minority of people arbitrarily designated as better?"
This seems like a mother issue to me. You are being way hysterical and emotional and making up insane examples of mass-murder and rape that literally doesn't happen ever anywhere (except under government banners in government uniforms actually).
It's a stupid argument anyway, because for about 20 pages now, people are using the word "government" like it's apart from humans, when we are just talking about people who adopt a certain label that deflects responsibility for their behavior; you are saying, "The thieves and rapists and murderers and kidnappers should be obeyed," and some other people are saying, "the thieves and rapists and murderers and kidnappers should be disarmed."
also still fuck infrastructure; college-boy word for the chain gang.
"Ah, those endless forests, and their horror-haunted gloom! For what eternities have I wandered through them, a timid, hunted creature, starting at the least sound, frightened of my own shadow, keyed-up, ever alert and vigilant, ready on the instant to dash away in mad flight for my life. For I was the prey of all manner of fierce life that dwelt in the forest, and it was in ecstasies of fear that I fled before the hunting monsters."
