Joe Thompson, who identifies himself as an Objectivist, takes to task the folks at http://www.moraldefense.com/ who call for a cessation of the anti-trust litigation against Microsoft.

The most common parallels they draw are those between Standard Oil and Microsoft, and between John Galt and Bill Gates. I wasn't able to find specific comments by Ayn Rand on the Standard Oil breakup, but I will in this essay attempt to draw parallels between Microsoft and Taggart Transcontinental under the ownership of Jim Taggart, and distinguish it from Rearden Steel.
