Net Neutrality

Eripsa made an excellent post about net neutrality and freedom of speech; I couldn't have said it better myself. This is a very important issue right now; I urge you to go read what he has to say.

Tantalizing snippet:

When telecommunications companies argue against net neutrality, they are in effect arguing that they have the right to control the content that flows over ‘their pipes’; that they have the right to have a say the production of content. This is exactly why the net neutrality issue requires government intervention: not to tell the companies what they must do with their pipes, but to tell them what they can’t do with my speech.
