Not Everything Should Be for Sale (Updated) 0

Brendan has a good post up about net neutrality.

You can act now.

Here is a copy of the email that I sent to the Chairman of the FCC. and, slightly reworked, to my elected representatives incongruously assembled.

Feel free to plagiarize it to your heart’s desire:

This is to express my opposition to proposals to allow Internet Service Providers to allow favored access for some websites over others.

It is not true or right that everything in this nation should be for sale.

When I pay my not insubstantial fee to my ISP, I should have access to the entire internet on the same level playing field.

It is true that there is such a thing as the public good. Making everything for sale is not in the public good.

Addendum, 7/11/2007:
