The proposed new regulations, essentially authored by the Obama administration, comprise 332 pages – 332 secret pages! The "most transparent administration in history" is not about to let us see what it's planning to do to us. This is another Nancy Pelosi "We've got to pass it to find out what's in it" moment.
The secrecy surrounding this power grab would almost lead one to suspect that this might be a332 page Trojan horse. What's in there that the administration is afraid to let us see? Why are they beating the drum about "network neutrality," when anyone using half their brain knows it doesn't take 332 pages to address neutrality? And in any case, as every thinking person knows, neutrality can be effected only by a free market, and never by government fiat.
'Whatever may be buried in this 332 page sneak attack, there's one thing I can guaran-damn-tee y'all: If you like your internet, you won't get to keep your internet.
Network neutrality is a Perception Control word designed to delude people who don't think much into believing that the government has their best interests at heart. The actual goal of the administration is obviously not neutrality, which already exists, but neutralization – the neutralizing of the internet's ability to instantaneously transmit anti-Fascist ideas to a global audience. Their objective, in other words, is censorship. The target is not Google and Microsoft. The target is the First Amendment.
Ask yourself what other nations censor their internet. China, Cuba, and North Korea come to mind. I rest my case.
The core of the problem, however, is not Obama's rabid Fascism. We knew he was a Fascist when we elected him. The problem is that he has a ready made tool to effect his Fascist ambitions – the FCC.
The FCC was born in the Communications Act of 1934, and its purpose was to regulate the frequencies and powers employed by radio operators. But it's no longer 1934. There are no longer any amateur radio operators broadcasting out of their barns. The industry has matured and is quite capable of policing itself – and the FCC is a dinosaur.
Since it's no longer needed and it presents an opportunity for the implementation of Presidential mischief, I would strongly suggest that the FCC be disbanded. When Ronald Reagan took office in 1981, he immediately began reining in the EPA and other runaway regulatory agencies by cutting their funding. But since the FCC is supported solely by license fees, we can't just defund it. Our only option is to repeal the Communications Act of 1934. And that's not likely to happen before 2017.
Meanwhile, get ready for higher internet costs and for more government spying and censorship.
