Yeah I agree with both of you. But the conversation digressed.

Crawford herself acknowledges this, arguing "America needs more people who can calmly and rationally oppose the free-marketeer rhetoric."

What a loaded statement. And it shows a disconnect between her thinking and reality. The reality is that we don't have a free market when it comes to Internet access. Also she loads the statement by using the word 'marketeer' which insidiously implies overly exploitative intent. The opposite is true. We've been overly exploited by the Duopoly. If we had choice, we could more often choose the least exploitative provider.

Crawford's sweeping indictment of big business is unlikely to find a sympathetic ear among conservatives or libertarians.

The article writer Timothy B. Lee is rather wrong here. Libertarians do not want or support government-backed big business.
