Corporate arms races are always good...

As everyone's aware, Google, Microsoft, and to a lesser extent, Yahoo! are stepping up their fight against each other to bring us more, better free stuff. Everybody wins. Except, of course, when they bring governments in on their side - like Google has done, filing a suit against Microsoft because Microsoft made MSN search the default in the new IE7. Consumers don't win when competition is regulated, because companies can't do certain things to benefit us and them for fear of suits.

A wider look makes it obvious that the only way corporations can screw over the people is in collusion with government. We need to get government out of the market so the market can benefit us all.
