Monopolies, Conglomerates, and Capitalism

As I’ve been thinking about new video content I could upload, an idea popped up about educational videos. Videos about specific areas of huge companies, bringing in billions a year, and how it can affect our lives.

It’s something I’ve always questioned, and had an interest in, but I have never taken the time to learn about it. Last night, I went into research about the top 7 US companies, their revenue, employment rates, and what they are. I was interested to find that 6th is Berkshire Hathaway, run by Warren Buffett. Even more interesting was that 7th is, United Health Group bringing in 242,155,000 in 2020 so far.

This morning, as soon as I checked my phone, an article popped up about the US government starting a lawsuit against Google through antitrust laws. The government is claiming that multiple US tech corporations are holding a monopoly over their respective industries. This makes innovation and competition nearly impossible, and I’m excited to see where all this goes, even though it could take over a decade to come to a close.

Anyway, as far as video content goes, there are endless possibilities surrounding faulty/shady business practices… I wonder if people would find it interesting to hear about some of the information that is available surrounding this. It’s a lot different from anything I had planned for content, but honestly I think it’s important to have access to this kind of information, and even more important that I educate myself on some of these things. I have always been opposed to giant corporations, but I would never any factual basis on why, it’s always just been a feeling. A feeling that these corporations don’t have the individuals working under them at heart, and they certainly don’t want competition, or innovation, if they aren’t the ones headlining it.

So what do you guys think? I know it would be drastically different from what I normally talk about, and it is pretty overwhelming because there is so much to sift through but it may be a new project, that I can really put my mind to. Always keeping myself busy it seems.

The Start of Something New

After a lot of contemplation, I decided to splurge and buy myself some things, things that I can use to focus on art. I’ve been working on creating some designs for stickers, painting some new acrylic pieces, and overall just developing my art style. It’s been a lot of fun, and a bit overwhelming learning how to do all this. I hope someday to be able to launch an online business of sorts, my mind is moving a million miles an hour with a bunch of ideas, organizing them has been a challenge so far.

Below I will show some of my designs, stay tuned for some photos of my applications for them, I’ve been going a little sticker crazy, so there will be plenty of content to upload in the next couple weeks. I hope you’ll stick around (pun intended).
