You said it: unless it is supported by the government. Big corporations can
always bribe government officers and recover much more than they have
invested in bribes, by unfair competition supported by the government. Small
companies cannot do this.

### This is an old canard, Giulio. You can always compete or refuse to
trade with a corporation, unless it is supported by the government.
There is not a single case of a private monopolist capable of
preventing competition in a capitalist economy ever - this happens
exclusively when a government intervenes to create a monopoly.

I challenge you to give us a single specific historic example of a
private entity that would refute this observation.
