Neutral — Yeah, Right

As a Linux user and free-software advocate, I respect Richard M. Stallman’s enormous contributions to the open-source movement, although I don’t agree with most of his political views. Somehow, however, I don’t think putting the internet under the control of a gov’t-sanctioned racist ties in with RMS’s theories of informational freedom.

  1. If net neutrality were actually neutral, I'd be all for it. Allowing Obama's bunch to define free speech and regulate the flow of information is insane.

  2. There were people long before Obama arguing for net neutrality, and those same people (Google, Yahoo, eBay, Amazon) are the ones hoping to get it passed now. I have more faith in a government (that potentially changes parties ever 2/4/6/8 years) than I do cable and telecommunications companies like Cox and AT&T.

    I don't think it is a simple issue however. It's obviously way more complicated than just a slogan for or against it. I think the jury is still out on whether it would hurt innovation or not, but I can see how it might be possible.

  3. Read the profile on Mark Lloyd and tell me how "neutral" you think he will be enforcing net neutrality. Lloyd isn't interested in the freedom of the web. He wants to regulate and cripple it with racial quotas. Affirmative actionweb 2.0.
