“Net Neutrality” is Back. It’s Still a Corporate Welfare Scam and Internet Censorship Enabling Act.

On July 28, US Senators Ed Markey (D-MA) and Ron Wyden (D-OR), along with US Representative Doris Matsui (D-HI) introduced a bill to reclassify Internet Service Providers from Title I “information services” to Title II  “common carrier services.” Why this bill? Because the term “Net Neutrality” polls well among those who don’t bother to look into the details.


We cannot avoid the inevitability of Nature by passing a pitiful fiction in a legislature, which is itself a fiction.  We cannot supplant Nature by toying with language in the courts, which are themselves fictions.
