Everything You Wanted To Know About Net Neutrality But Were Afraid to Ask

Baffled by ‘Net Neutrality’? Read This, a WSJ Primer – WSJ.com

Let’s start there. What’s net neutrality?

Net neutrality is the principle that all traffic on the Internet should be treated equally—broadband providers shouldn’t be able to pick and choose which websites consumers can access.

A good explanation.  My take?  As more and more of our daily lives come to depend on broadband, the more, the better, I expect it to eventually be regulated as a utility, just like the power companies.

Whether that is a good or bad outcome (I’m inclined to be leery) I still expect it to happen.  We aren’t a regulatory state for nothing.  Too much boodle at stake to pass this up.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
