Antitrust is the promotion of competition. In business, an antitrust functions to promote the preservation of a specific interest while strengthening that same interest through exposure to all alternates. A company might be untrustworthy if holding a monopoly, as exemplified in the United States in Bell Telephone, Microsoft Software, and Sony Betamax. More poetically, a sword is tested in heat and cold before it is tested in battle. Again, we see a play on words: "anti-trust:" to be against trust. In times of confusion, doubt, or even the fog of war, trust descends upon individuals as a focus of divisive self-preservation, and therefore none are trustworthy. Anti-trust as relevant to the movie "The Magic Christian" promotes the view of trusting none of mankind, and therefore only in God.
