Is anti-trust legislation a thing of the left?

Yes - Alan Greenspan and Ayn Rand eloquently explained why decades ago. Every one of those "trusts" got that way through government preferences, as did Facebook, which is a front for law enforcement and intelligence interests. Take those preferences away and the market will rapidly do its work.

If you have a link for Greenspan, please pass it on.

Ayn Rand had some great things to say, but her musings on monopoly were about as coherent as her strange musings about sex.

They all (most) front for intelligence since ATT in the 60s.

The playing field does have to be somewhat leveled as people in Silicon Valley with similar philosophies and world views and lack of interest in the US, Americans etc have taken over the IT business, to the extent that they caused the head of one major company to quit and another, Peter Thiel, who was part of the band but too far right for them, to re-establish a company near LA.

IDK if there has been anything in the history of US big business or antitrust like this—where there is a clot of founders and funders who all espouse the same political and social views that involve massive social change.

They do have to be trimmed a lot, so that other kinds of platforms can grow. Likely they will be less than popular in ten years, but its too long to wait.
