When I listen to Rep. Lee Terry speak about the evils of net neutrality it is patently clear that his opinion is not one based in the reality that most of us live in. Rather, it is based in the reality of pro-corporate, pro-big government which is plaguing our political system.
What Mr. Terry fails to understand is that while it may seem that net neutrality itself is "big government," it is the opposite. To claim the former is no different than to claim that the Bill of Rights is big government. It is simply absurd to imply that the existence of a law implies big government and the absence of one implies freedom. In the case of Ne tNeutrality, as well as the Bill of Rights, the intention is not to create a framework that prevents us from doing something but rather one that provides us with certain rights.
