Ronald Reagan was right:
Government’s view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: if it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.
Tom Wheeler, the current FCC Chairman, doesn’t think that’s funny. He thinks they are his marching orders. Encouraged by his boss, Wheeler is reaching for the biggest hammer in his toolbox to bludgeon the internet into submission and turn it into a utility. On Thursday Wheeler will roll out the 332-page so-far secret document (after his commission has voted to pass it, of course) so the rest of us can see what’s in it. Few will be pleased with what they find.
The first thing will be changing the classification of the internet from an “information services” industry to a “telecommunications” industry, thus allowing the onerous – some call them draconian – rules now to apply to the internet, thus turning it essentially into a utility: bland, beige, quiescent, orderly, stagnant, inefficient, and expensive. But according to Matt Wood, a blogger at Free Press who is “all in” for “net neutrality,” this is a good thing. After all, he wrote, “Letting the carriers charge more (or less) money to reach certain sites is discriminatory, and it’s now how the Internet is supposed to work.”

The internet “works” because information providers and the telecommunications industry have worked together to create the Gutenberg Press of the 21st Century. The effects of that press continue to ripple even after five hundred years.
