At the time, information was scarce, but thanks to Microsoft's quarterly filing at the Securities and Exchange Commission. we now have a little more insight into what the EU might force Microsoft to do.

Tell me about it. People are too stupid for their own good.

How can you have equality without force? People don't just choose the things you know are good, so you have to guide them. If left to the "market," quality would be terrible and ignorance would be exploited. Thanks to the government, we can have uniformity and expert-informed choices.

The only thing left is to install Ubermensch to ensure our bright common future. The US is getting there.
