A Practical Example.
2 years ago, the cable company had sneaked our monthly cost for Internet, Phone, TV, up to 184 bucks. That got our attention. We called and negotiated it down to 132.
Last year, we negotiated the bundle down to 106 a month. It is currently at 106.
If you think we'd have been able to do that without competitive offerings such as Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, etc, you are smoking something.
This is capitalism. It has made our life better. Capitalism makes your life better. Someone give me an example of socialism that made their life better. Well, one caveat - you have to be a working taxpayer.
