The left is really pissed off now because the people who discovered a bunch of natural gas off the coast of Israel will not have to be harassed by the antitrust authority for trying to develop a natural resource. All the leftists who had absolutely nothing to do with discovering anything – no investment, no capital, no nothing – are all upset that they will not get a bigger piece of the action by having the companies who discovered the Leviathan field taxed up the wazoo and prevented from ever developing the field because doing so violates some arbitrary law.
Antitrust is a made up concept that is indefinable, because a trust is indefinable. If two companies working together on one project and setting a price for it is a trust, then two groups of people in the same company working together on one project and setting a price for it is a trust. If a trust is a thing and antitrust is justified, then all economic cooperation of any kind must be forbidden.
The result of consistent application of antitrust laws would be mass starvation and death, because nobody would be allowed to cooperate on anything, and all who are not completely self-sufficient would die.
So, in advocating for antitrust laws, these people are rooting on mass global starvation.
Good job and yasher koach to Netanyahu for at least getting this passed. I doubt it will stand up to the Supreme Court of Idiots, and if they overturn this and force the antitrust laws then I would encourage the discoverers of the field, Noble Energy, Delek, and Yitzchak Tshuva to destroy the field and blow it up, Francisco d’Anconia Atlas Shrugged style so nobody can use it, and stick it to those “judges”.
