You’ve all heard by now that Google and Verizon will take care of it. They will come to an agreement between them that will ensure the best use of bandwidth for everyone.
And what we’re arguing about is whether their agreement preserves enough net neutrality.
Net neutrality is a question of rights. Who determines the content of the public airwaves? Who determines the extent of your right to see or hear what you choose? Who determines what you can choose to see and hear?
Since when do businesses decide questions of rights? That is a function of government.
Does the government fit into such a tiny tub by now that we no longer have any idea what it’s for?
