In the Matter of Staples/Essendant, Inc., File No. 1810180
I'm sure you've already seen mountains of reasons why this shouldn't be permitted, couched in much more technically accurate language than I can produce. Let me just say that history (going back to, say, the Roaring 20s, Rockefeller, Carnegie, etc.) tells us that unbridled capitalism is a bad thing and that corporations are capable of inflicting massive damage if left unchecked and allowed to grow freely. It is not in America's interest to permit a repeat of this dark chapter of our history. Don't permit this merger, please.
