  •  The regulatory tip of an iceberg: Common Carriage (7+ / 0-)

    The ubiquity and concentration of infrastructure makes universal service more palatable more now than ever before, but there are multiple layers of regulatory hurdles for liberating the network and a complex terrain of ownership and property rights. It is less a restoration of universal service philosophy than rethinking it in terms of broadband technologies layered onto actual infrastructure, especially since the issues that impinge on democratic principles will be at risk as well as free speech far beyond Citizens United.

      There are a few comments that really deserve to be highlighted, maybe even carved in stone because they are informed and instructive.

      The above, about the regulatory tip of the iceberg, is one.  

      hope that the idiots who have no constructive and creative solutions but only look to tear down will not win the day.

        books or links for any of us who take your above comment to heart?  Yes, I do need to educate myself.  We have already seen in this debate that you might be convinced that black is white if you don't know what is going on.

        This is a very informative discussion.  I'm appreciating you experts taking the time.

        We can have democracy in this country, or we can have great wealth concentrated in the hands of a few, but we can't have both.
