Net Neutrality: Triumph of the Ruling Class posted 02/27/2015, 3:56 PM (Jeffrey Tucker)
[Category: Commentary]
A triumph of "free expression and democratic principles"? How stupid do they think we are?

It's been painful to watch the gradual tightening of government control in the name of net neutrality. The Federal Communications Commission's decision to rewrite the rules and declare the Internet as a public utility seals the deal. It cartelizes the industry and turns a "Wild West" into a planned system of public management — or at least intends to.

All the rest is a veneer to cover what is actually a power grab.

This whole plot has had all the usual elements. It has a good name and its supporters say it is about stopping private and public control. It's had the backing of all the top names in content delivery, from Yahoo to Netflix to Amazon. It's had the quiet support of the leading Internet service providers. The decision to impose the rule has been declared by a tiny group of unaccountable bureaucrats operating with the support of the executive lame duck.

The opposition, in contrast, has been represented by small players in the industry, hardware providers like Cisco, free-market think tanks and disinterested professors, and a small group of writers and pundits who know something about freedom and free-market economics. The public at large should have been rising up in opposition but people are largely ignorant of what's going on.

Here's what's really going on. The incumbent rulers of the world's most exciting technology have decided to lock down the prevailing market conditions to protect themselves against rising upstarts in a fast-changing market. To impose a new rule against throttling content or using the market price system to allocate bandwidth resources protects against innovations that would disrupt the status quo.

A homeless man in San Francisco was savagely beaten and pepper sprayed by a cop after falling asleep on a bus.

Video footage shows a clearly intoxicated Bernard Warren being woken by Officer Raymond Chu of SFPD. Struggling to get Warren to move, the cop becomes impatient and starts pushing Warren.

Warren, clearly not in any state to act as a threat, then tells Chu "Don't touch me. I could beat your ass," which immediately sets the officer into thug cop mode.
