Atlas Shrugged Lives on in Google Antitrust Case

If there ever was a real-world equivalent of Reardan Metal, it might just be Google. I’ve been using the site since college (the late 1990s) when I realized that it was the one search engine that constantly found what I was looking for in what was then the untamed wilds of the Internet.

Evidently, Google, like Microsoft more than a decade ago, has grown too successful for the bureaucrats in the Federal Government to tolerate. So, they have filed an antitrust case against the fabulously-successful internet search company.

The fact is that the antitrust case is silly. Google has a large market share because it is an amazing product. There is no monopoly. I could start my own search engine website if I wanted to, but it wouldn’t be as good as the ubiquitous Google. Simply put, the government should butt out and let Google continue to create jobs and innovative products. Putting the shackles on innovators will only hasten the day when Atlas Shrugged becomes reality.

  1. I too worry about Google. It is a remarkable search engine. But, the growth of the company has it creating more and more applications that worry me about my own personal information. The company is invasive and acquisitive and I won’t have any of its software or toolbars on my computers. Who knows what it is collecting in the background. As a search engine I have used Dogpile.com for years and it is my default. Dogpile is a meta search engine which searches many other search engines including Google. It is the screen between me and Google and Bing and Yahoo and others. And, yes Google finds most everything but not everything. I use Outlook and use its junk mail eraser which has cut my junk mail from 1000 a day to 20. Further, I use anonymizer to access the internet. It cuts down on spam and crawlers. I use two frirewalls and two antivirus, malware, trojan programs. I use Advanced system care to screen odious and unknown cookies. Call me paranoid but I have only been infected once in 10 years.
