A large and evil corporation
which sells tickets in the U.S. They are probably the most obvious example of a monopoly
to be found. Pearl Jam
and other bands have unsuccessfully tried to break their stranglehold on the market, while the department of justice
does nothing with the Sherman Antitrust Act
"I see in the near future a crisis approaching that
unnerves me...and causes me to tremble for the safety
of my country....Corporations have been enthroned ... an
era of corruption in high places will follow...and
the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong
its reign by working on the prejudices of the people ...
until the wealth is aggregated in a few hands...and
the republic is destroyed."
-- Abe Lincoln
