The Open Internet & the Freedom of Speech

What do we really want?

What do we really want the government to be involved in? We can agree, its made a mess of Afghanistan, and should stay out of Iran. The debate over healthcare rages, but I think its agreed that education is a mess, immigration is apathetic, and drug patrols are inefficient to say the least. And now we want them involved in regulating the internet?

 

I agree, the internet should stay neutral, and that freedom of speech is paramount. But since when is the government (in the heat of political turnover and under pressure from recession) going to solve anything? Net neutrality is not internet protection, its special interent protection.

 

Net neutrality would make the internet subject to special interests and political whims just like any other war. NO.
