ISPs Really Have Gone Too Far

I am a strong believer in the power of the free market. I rarely advocate for government intervention, but in this situation (especially given the vignettes discussed in “Jammed”) it may be appropriate. When one company controls over 30% of a network vitally important to free speech, there’s an issue. That’s especially true when that company has a history of exerting its influence on federal, state, and local governments.

I don’t want to set a precedent for government intervention, but something must be done.

That is all.
