Must-Read WSJ editorial about FCC NET power grab

No, I don't agree with all the points made in this editorial, particularly how they dismiss the possibility (and legitimacy) of ISP's blocking streaming content at their will with the "if you don't like it, just get another ISP" mantra.

But the larger point is one to seriously consider. Once any entity of government lays claim to regulation of any sort, it becomes a very, very slippery slope. Do you want five regulators determining internet policy in this country? Five politically appointed regulators, that is.

As always, be very careful of what you wish for.
