QOTD: Net Neutrality

Charlie Pierce:

In the FCC's decision, there is no more  a "long-term" plot for government control of Internet content than there is in Agenda 21 an actual secret plan to steal our golfs. All the FCC is doing is making sure that greed-gobblers like Comcast don't get to decide which content to promote and which content to bury. Rarely is seen so clearly the modern conservative notion of civil liberties -- the government cannot abridge your rights, even in an imaginary sense, but its real function is to subcontract that to anyone whose bid is high enough. Not what the Founders had in mind, I don't believe.
