    They no longer need to have jobs. The Federal government will take care of them with your tax dollars.

    Should we have regulated public utilities that provide monopolistic but governmentally regulated services or not?
    .
    I would say “not”. What we should have is regulated public utilities that compete with each other to provide services within the framework of their regulation.

    The problem with AT&T was not that it was stifling development of these technologies, but that it had a monopolistic control over access to the home consumer.
    .
    At the time, all telecom access was via land line telephone wires which could not support the speeds and bandwidths for emerging video or high speed (relatively) data technologies. AT&T had no incentive to invest in network upgrades to the home to support services that it could not provide and would not benefit from. In addition to breaking the company into competing entities, the divestiture also changed the rules and allowed competitors to install their own network directly to the end consumer.

    That would be kind of how it looked at the end of the last interglacial period.

    And what would be the reason for saving them, as opposed to just moving somewhere else?

    Now just who was in charge of the executive in government at that time??
    .
    That’s not really relative. The divestiture was initiated by the filing in 1974 by the United States Department of Justice of an antitrust lawsuit against AT&T. During the intervening period, we had 4 years of the Carter administration which could have stopped it at any time.
    .
    AT&T was broken up because it was a monopoly that was stifling competition necessary to support the video and computer technologies that were emerging at the time.

    Why don’t we just turn the Middle East into a sheet of glass that can reflect the sun’s rays back into space so they don’t warm the Earth.

    Well, he claims to be an independent, so why should he be able to run as a democrat. If he runs as an independent, I’ll even send him a donation.
