You don't understand the point of net neutrality. The point of net neutrality is not to have the government "control" the internet, it is to keep internet neutral for the internet providers. They won't be able to slow down other sites based on whether or not they agree with the content of the other site or if they are a competitor.

It is the start of controlling the internet. Last I thought the FCC has something to do with the Feds? It could turn into a way to silence the opposition.

Net neutrality is definitely a good idea. I'm not sure if we need a bunch of new regulations to achieve it. I figured it was inevitable that the government would get involved in regulating the internet. I'm ok with it unless they start trying regulate content.

In China they regulate it and it will be a matter of time and they will do the same here.

I guess it's just you way the typical conservative mind works. It's the "for us or against us", "black and white" "all or nothing" mentality. you cannot see how the government might control some aspect of the internet without controlling every aspect of it. I'n not quite as fearful of our government.

The other side of you slippery slope leads to anarchy. Would that be preferable?

My typical conservative mind would like the gub-ner-ment to not be involved in my daily life. I dont need them, and we should fear the living s**t out of them.

The only thing the governemtn used to be able to do effectively was run wars. Because when we used to be in the business of winning wars, it was very "black and white", without all the pussyfootin and politicin around the realities of war and all the rules. So, with that said what has the gov run efectively in your mind? Social security? They couldnt run a whore house and sell whiskey!

I think that the less they have control over the more of our freedoms we retain. You do have to agree that they do have a fair amount of control over our daily lives and continue to assume we need to be controlled. The more we give up the less we have.
We need rules and regulations, but when do we say enough is enough?

They say competition will regulate the internet. I.E. if you dont like your ISP who throttles bandwidth or otherwise that you can just choose someone else. Well 1) I shouldn't have to and 2) In rural areas like here there may be only 1 choice for internet. I love my 16mb cable internet I shouldn't have to worry that they will throttle it down based in what I'm using it for (aside from running a business). The government put similar sanctions in effect in 1996 for the dial-up service and that worked out fine. Some of you guys are way too paranoid.

The Telecommunications Act of 1996 opened up the phone networks for increased competition and it had opposition from the paranoid anti-big government people out there. And it worked out as I remember.
