Rush does a good job in explaining the countering info to all the scare tactics of the Left about “net neutrality.”
Here is a comment via my LIVELEAK (rough language warning):
Wanted to get this portion of an important article here — via THE MISES INSTITUTE:
Let me caveat this next excerpt by saying I am NOT a fan of the New American Magazine. They are a John Birch publication, and my understanding of this organization is intimate, and so are my ultimate rejection of many of it’s positions. THAT BEING SAID, I thoroughly enjoyed this article (minus the NWO crap!) — THE BREAKUP OF MA BELL:

Net Neutrality Explained:
I have an older post with Professor Hazlett explaining the issue more in-depth, HERE
I recently watched a classic movie… 1984. And language is used as a weapon of propaganda. For instance, here are some famous quotes:
- “War is Peace; Freedom is Slavery; Ignorance is Strength” | the three slogans of the English Socialist Party (“INGSOC” for short) of Oceania.
Here, you see the same language misuse used to make a point (really, a non-point):
This isn’t “democracy”! The public didn’t vote on it. It wasn’t even “passed” per our Republic… those representatives we voted into office never voted on it.
Up is Down in la-la-land.
Here is part of John Fund’s article via the ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER:
WIRED MAGAZINE had a great article back in 2015… here are three of the many points it makes:
Read the five more critiques of Net Neutrality at THE DAILY WIRE:
This is the first sermon in the summer session of 2017 at Faith Community. Over the summer Faith meets for only one service and has children as well as the parents sitting in the pews. This “kickoff” sermon discusses the issues of family and the roles of husband and wife, as well as the kids. A great connection is made to the roles of the Trinity (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit).
Firstly, for the sake of good conversation and clarity… we need [actually, Dr. DiLorenzo] to define socialism:
Here are some article headlines that will help encapsulate the quote:
Another example from a few years ago is the Fairness Doctrine. Just listen to Ed Schultz admit something in this radio excerpt (below-right ~ from an OLD POST).
You see, all this is a power play. In a society becoming increasingly more-and-more socialist… power and control over every aspect of life becomes more-and-more natural. Almost a necessity [inherent] on the part of the politician. Democrats think they are for freedom, but in fact they are the root cause for the constant attacks on freedom. That is, progressive liberalism… not classical liberalism.
And as a Christian I am concerned, ultimately, for truth [Truth]. Truth is what a free society strives for… and often getting to it means discussing all options. “Options” are anathema to socialism, to wit:
Worth your while as well is this commentary by Ezra Levant on Venezuela a little over a year ago.
