Historically, almost all monopolies are government created and/or government sustained.

As do almost all of us. But the market can control that problem a lot better than governments.

For example, Jim Crow policies did not arise out of businesses demanding discrimination against blacks. Economic historians such as Jennifer Roback Morse have noted that the private bus and rail companies opposed Jim Crow laws that segregated city buses, and businesses in general resisted racial discrimination, but were brought to heel by city councils and state and federal legislators.

I don't think many far right folks realize that their opinions are not good for business. There just isn't a good business model for far right type of speech, as it seems like most of their alternatives rely on donations.

Well anyone have an alternative?
It is their company, they have the right to do what they want. No one is entitled to that platform.

They are NOT 'banning anything Conservative', they are NOT banning anything. They are demonetizing controversial videos.

They have the right to do that. Again, NO ONE is entitled to that platform.

And I'm VERY Conservative...to prevent anyone who doesn't actually already know that from calling me a lefty.

When an involuntary 3rd party holds a gun to your head and demands that you provide the fruits of your labor to someone else that is slavery.
