The desire to bust trusts (monopolies) is shared by a fraction of
people on both the left and right of the political spectrum. A
right-wing analysis goes: A market dominated by a monopoly is not a
free market. So in this model, the government is needed to fairly
apply rules to prevent or break up monopolies.

But we're sliding even more off-topic.
