The Return of Net Neutrality: FCC Approves New Proposal to Regulate the Internet

Today, the FCC voted on a new proposed rule that governs how the internet, with respect to service providers and their ability to set prices, will be regulated. The hearing came down to a vote of 3-2 down party lines in support of the proposal, whith Republicans siding against the rule. After a court decision earlier this year that struck down previous net neutrality standards but preserved the FCC’s authority over internet regulation, the agency has been struggling to come up with rules that don’t make absolutely everyone angry.

Good Riddance to Net Neutrality

There has never been a better example of what economist F. A. Hayek termed “spontaneous order,” complex systems that arise purely through the actions of self-interested individuals, than the wild and wooly growth of the internet over the past few decades. Thanks to the efforts of an enormous number of content providers, innovators, entrepreneurs and investors, the internet sprang from obscurity into one of the most revolutionary tools of wealth creation and information distribution the world has ever seen.

'Net Neutrality' Did you mean: Net Cartel

Benjamin Franklin once said, “Anyone who trades liberty for security deserves neither liberty nor security.”  Those who favor the Net Cartel creating legislation known as “net neutrality,” like Google, MoveOn.org and high-tech lobbyists, seek to trade our economic liberties all in the name of security.  The companies that support this legislation want to get their hands on the broadband technologies already offered by other com
