Welcome to Light On Light Through, Episode 97, in which I explain why, even though I usually support progressive causes, I'm against net neutrality - or the government mandating that all providers of content have equal access to the Internet. In brief, my reasons are the First Amendment, the Utilitarian principle of the greatest good for the greatest number, and the importance of smooth and unimpeded streaming of TV and movies for millions of viewers. This podcast episode gives details on these reasons.
