Your post read as a rant; you jumped all over the place: Monopolies, Killer apps, big business, you won't drink the Google or Apple kool-aid (my words), then you jump into "losing my constitutional* rights." That meets the definition of a rant in my bookIm not ranting
You need/want things when you don't have a choice of providers, this is out of your control. You can choose not to have electricity, water and the like, but you are on the internet, so I have to assume you have electricity, food in the belly, and access to the internet. You get this all from?
You can't live on principles; at some point, you have to eat and drink.
