Dear Foolish and Gullible Americans, Net Neutrality is Not Your Friend

Dear Net Neutrality Proponents,

You dear, sweet buffoons.

I know you’re quite impressed that the Federal Communications Commission just passed a sweeping set of regulations granting themselves control over the Internet. President Barack Obama considers this a glorious victory. Liberals and Democrats across the land are delighted. Even some corners of cyber space — the ones populated by masochists and nincompoops — are cheering loudly, excited to finally be under the jurisdiction of an enormous federal bureaucracy. Hallelujah!

Now, Gullible Americans, I realize that you think you’ve just been once again liberated from the shackles of the free market and whisked away to a fanciful land where Father Government makes sure everything is nice and fair and everyone is sharing their toys like good boys and girls. I know you are under this impression. I mean, I can’t blame you. It’s right there in the title. They call it “Net Neutrality,” for goodness sake! It’s neutral! Neutral means fair! Fair Internet! Who can quibble with a fair Internet! Only big bad corporations and their right wing minions, you think. Fox News and the Koch Brothers and Lex Luthor and other scary names.

The FCC tells us that Net Neutrality will give us a free and open Internet by granting them the power to regulate it under laws that were written 60 years before the Internet existed as a common household service. Consumers need to be protected from the possibility that Internet providers will block traffic to certain sites, or set up paid prioritization systems for consumers or web services who pay more. That’s what this is all about, you think. The FCC is looking out for the little guy again.

Good old FCC, always fighting for truth, justice, and bureaucratic control.

But, see, this is where I need you to stop and think, Gullible Americans. It’s too late now, but I need you to finally try to learn something here. The government is not the knight in shining armor you think it is — even when it’s run by Democrats.  ARTICLE CONTINUES HERE

  1. Since no one opposed to this writer’s opinion would want to continue reading after he begins the piece by calling them names, we can presume he is only exercising his ego before an audience of followers. Op-ed writing has gotten so lazy.

    • A strong hook like this article had is what builds readership …it’s so in your face that people are drawn to it to see if whats inside can match the outside and this time that was the case. This article ranks in the top 25 for most widely circulated and read blog post to date …and after 5 years that’s saying a lot. I do thank you for your input…imagine how much more authority your comment would have commanded if you hadn’t admitted to not reading it in your little rant about the title. Just saying

      Oh and BTW I’m a she not a he.
