Your post would more properly be titled "Ignorance is bliss."  The US is one of only a very few countries in which cartels are "illegal."  Despite the fervent hopes of the "progressive" element, thankfully there is no "world government" that has thge power to make (and enforce) such a law.  In fact, most of the nations that you admire most actively ENCOURAGE and participate in cartels!
