I certainly have nothing further to say, however I will

Everybody can now form his judgment about what happened.

Correct! Further, since under free competition Capital can not
sustain a return greater than it's cost, where then do
the profits of such large Corporations come from?

The answer is anti-competitive privilege granted by a coercive state,
that is what really sets the great corporations apart is their
ability to promote their own interests using the power of the State,
to monopolize resources and exclude competition.

I'm really sorry to say this but once more your anti-Semitic attitude
 shows through: Single workers may but large companies may not? That
 argument has an anti-Semitic structure.

While this is irrelevant to what magius has said, this infuriating
quotation left at the bottom perfectly illustrates the sort of
reprehensible idiot Stefan Merten is. Responding to a perfectly clear
concern regarding the defense of a common stock against privileged
exploitation with a charge of antisemitism. Absolutely, unforgivably
and undeniably disgusting, those of you supporting him should give your
head a shake, you disgrace yourself and debase your own work by
involving yourself with him.
