Great video!  I'm all for free markets and free enterprise.  My only concern is with big business that works to break these down.

In Isaiah we see God's displeasure with monopoly; it expressed itself in the form of land ownership, buying up everything in sight.  This left the masses propertyless with no means of subsistence.  

"Woe to those who add house to house and join field to field, until there is no more room, so that you have to live alone in the midst of the land!"
-Isaiah 5:8 (NASB)

This same scenario took place in mid-17th century England, and led to the venting of the unemployed masses by establishing colonies in America - Massachusetts and Virginia were government solutions to mass unemployment.

Mass-anything leads to the same predicament, stealing employment from the masses in the name of lower costs and rising standards of living.  The reality is that mass-whatever does not lower overall costs, it only shifts costs from one group to another.  One group will pay for it in the form of unemployment.  It seems limiting the size of business entities would provide a much wider distribution of productive enterprise, even if it did result in a more expensive toothbrush.  I don't think it would. :-)
