Being able to speak freely to my local community is valuable, but I’m not sure we want to allow the strongest content to dominate the entire world. That kind of free speech and fair competition in the “marketplace of ideas” would destroy ideological diversity.
Rather than protect content monopolies from buffering by service providers, let’s break-up the service provider monopolies. I wouldn’t always be able to get all the content I want, but that’s an inevitable consequence of preventing monopoly. We all need to make short-term sacrifices for long-term gains.
