Evening Legal Briefs

Not surprising ARS is at best, 50%/50% on supporting CFL on this.

The Internet currently allows those who own their Internet property to operate as they want. But the solution (to unwanted traffic filtering) isn't net neutrality as I've said here before. Ending the duopoly is, in my opinion, a better idea. Maybe not for everywhere, but for many markets, the government regulated duopoly that we have now just isn't a 21st century solution. It's a failed political solution that we need to start to phase out so that the consumer is empowered and can chose an ISP that doesn't filter traffic. Consumer choice is far, far more powerful than government regulations.

In any case.. Remember that Ron Paul is an ally to those opposed to federal regulations such as PIPA, ACTA, SOPA that many collectivist corporations want very badly. So it goes both ways. If you get Net Neutrality, you are more likely to get federal fascist-like control of the Internet because the precedent has been set that they have the power to regulate it.
