The Federal Communications Commission’s new scheme to regulate the internet provides yet another example of a government agency desperately attempting to seize power. This has become such a common occurrence in government operation that it rarely even makes the news anymore.

FCC Misguided on Net Neutrality

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) announced today that it will revive the debate over net neutrality and issue new regulations concerning network management.
