FCC Approves Plan to Regulate Internet

"WASHINGTON -- The Federal Communications Commission on Tuesday approved a plan to regulate the Internet despite warnings that it could strangle industry investment and damage an economy that is still struggling to recover.

The 3-2 vote fell along partisan lines with Democrats capitalizing on their numerical advantage...."

If I didnt know any better, I would say this was a socialist concept.

Let's see. We will have the major cable and phone players put the cables in the ground and build up the ...then we will tell them who they can sell the bandwidth to and at what price.

For something this big, why are we allowing a bureaucracy like the FCC make the decision instead of Congress?

Question: How did it work when the phone company monopoly was broken up and all the phone companies had to share the use of the phone lines?

No, I still do not know why the FCC is making the decision that Congress should be making.

Completely agree with you. We all expect better from our government.


I don't know if anyone caught Janet Napolitano's terrorism risk upgrade yesterday. It seems kinda funny that when the Patriot Act is under review for extension, that the terrorism threats get heightened attention.

This isn't socialism, it is really Fascism.

If you don't understand what Fascism is, then learn about now. Very soon it will be too late, (if it already isn't...) Many of the Jewish faith never made it out of Germany alive even though they had close to a decade to figure out which way the stench of an evil wind was blowing. Like wind, Fascism can change course and intensity without actually being seen or felt in real time.

For the last 40 years, unlike teaching fear and contempt regarding Communism, Fascism, in its many variant historical forms, was never taught very well to American school children.

definition and history of Fascism from Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fascism_and_ideology

(Wikipedia) [44] Under fascism, the profit motive continues to be the primary motivation of contributors to the economy.[43] Along with support of private property and the profit motive, fascists also support the market economy.[45]

Italian Fascism's economic system of corporatism was promoted as reconciling the interests of capital and labour.[46]



Highly related to Fascism is CORPORATISM: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corporatism

(Wikipedia) Corporatism is related to the sociological concept of structural functionalism.[6] Corporate social interaction is common within kinship groups such as families, clans and ethnicities.[7] Aside from humans, certain animal species are known to exhibit strong corporate social organization, such as penguins.[8][9]

Corporatist types of community and social interaction are common to many ideologies, including: absolutism, capitalism, conservatism, fascism, liberalism, progressivism, reactionism, socialism, and syndicalism.[10]



(How to identify Fascist charateristics: http://www.rense.com/general37/char.htm)

Fourteen Defining Characteristics Of Fascism
By Dr. Lawrence Britt
Source Free Inquiry.co
5-28-3



Dr. Lawrence Britt has examined the fascist regimes of Hitler (Germany), Mussolini (Italy), Franco (Spain), Suharto (Indonesia) and several Latin American regimes. Britt found 14 defining characteristics common to each:

1. Powerful and Continuing Nationalism - Fascist regimes tend to make constant use of patriotic mottos, slogans, symbols, songs, and other paraphernalia. Flags are seen everywhere, as are flag symbols on clothing and in public displays.

2. Disdain for the Recognition of Human Rights - Because of fear of enemies and the need for security, the people in fascist regimes are persuaded that human rights can be ignored in certain cases because of "need." The people tend to look the other way or even approve of torture, summary executions, assassinations, long incarcerations of prisoners, etc.

3. Identification of Enemies/Scapegoats as a Unifying Cause - The people are rallied into a unifying patriotic frenzy over the need to eliminate a perceived common threat or foe: racial , ethnic or religious minorities; liberals; communists; socialists, terrorists, etc.

4. Supremacy of the Military - Even when there are widespread
domestic problems, the military is given a disproportionate amount of government funding, and the domestic agenda is neglected. Soldiers and military service are glamorized.

5. Rampant Sexism - The governments of fascist nations tend to be almost exclusively male-dominated. Under fascist regimes, traditional gender roles are made more rigid. Divorce, abortion and homosexuality are suppressed and the state is represented as the ultimate guardian of the family institution.

6. Controlled Mass Media - Sometimes to media is directly controlled by the government, but in other cases, the media is indirectly controlled by government regulation, or sympathetic media spokespeople and executives. Censorship, especially in war time, is very common.

7. Obsession with National Security - Fear is used as a motivational tool by the government over the masses.

8. Religion and Government are Intertwined - Governments in fascist nations tend to use the most common religion in the nation as a tool to manipulate public opinion. Religious rhetoric and terminology is common from government leaders, even when the major tenets of the religion are diametrically opposed to the government's policies or actions.

9. Corporate Power is Protected - The industrial and business aristocracy of a fascist nation often are the ones who put the government leaders into power, creating a mutually beneficial business/government relationship and power elite.

10. Labor Power is Suppressed - Because the organizing power of labor is the only real threat to a fascist government, labor unions are either eliminated entirely, or are severely suppressed.

11. Disdain for Intellectuals and the Arts - Fascist nations tend to promote and tolerate open hostility to higher education, and academia. It is not uncommon for professors and other academics to be censored or even arrested. Free expression in the arts and letters is openly attacked.

12. Obsession with Crime and Punishment - Under fascist regimes, the police are given almost limitless power to enforce laws. The people are often willing to overlook police abuses and even forego civil liberties in the name of patriotism. There is often a national police force with virtually unlimited power in fascist nations.

13. Rampant Cronyism and Corruption - Fascist regimes almost always are governed by groups of friends and associates who appoint each other to government positions and use governmental power and authority to protect their friends from accountability. It is not uncommon in fascist regimes for national resources and even treasures to be appropriated or even outright stolen by government leaders.

14. Fraudulent Elections - Sometimes elections in fascist nations are a complete sham. Other times elections are manipulated by smear campaigns against or even assassination of opposition candidates, use of legislation to control voting numbers or political district boundaries, and manipulation of the media. Fascist nations also typically use their judiciaries to manipulate or control elections.
