Net neutrality will not help your internet experience.
The government will not make the internet better.
Companies won't be ruining your internet experience anyway.
The arguments in favor of net neutrality ignore the advancements in technology that would solve the supposed problems being addressed by net neutrality.
There is no compelling reason for the government to get involved.
The internet is absolutely not a human right.
The truth about the Comcast / Netflix battle that is used as the evidence to support net neutrality, proves the exact opposite of what net neutrality supporters argue.
But, other than that, net neutrality is awesome!
As Senator Ben Sasse mentioned the other day, net neutrality itself is a ridiculous term. We are talking about the creation of the Department of the Internet.
Think about what you know about how the government works. To boil it down-- pick one:
- Private schools or public schools?
- Private pools or public pools?
- Private bathrooms or public bathrooms?
- Private housing or public housing?
I can understand how progressives argue for net neutrality. It results in a massive increase in government control of what is currently free. And this is just the beginning. That's what progressives do. But, it's painful to hear conservatives flail through bizarre "its a utility!" and "but, monopolies and stuff!" arguments.
Yes, the internet is awesome. There is a difference between what is a right, and what is awesome.
And no, the internet was not invented by the government. Don't make me post that segment too.
