That is true for most “American?” corporations. Businesses begun by visionaries, artists and craftsmen, as well as others, have lost their soul to profit margin. As an example, Fender no longer cares for the Musician or the outlet where they can play and fall in love with the product. They now sell on line competing with the outlets that helped make them what they were. The brick and mortar store that handles the products ends up, in many cases, as the place for the product to be examined and then purchased for less on the internet. This is true in many product lines and degrades the local economy and personality of the area. Virtual monopolies are allowed by the current government and is actually encouraged in exchange for “election campaign donations”.
