Yesterday Mr. Marvin Ammori posted an article at the Huffington Post titled “FCC Chair Proposes Garbage, Calls it Net Neutrality.” As part of the cult of net neutrality, Mr. Ammori falls to ever so familiar tactics: drama, apocalyptic themes, and an unwavering need to fix a problem he is certain will happen in the future.
He specifically attacked the FCC Chairman for exempting wireless broadband from his proposal. Mr. Ammori, Hispanics are the largest users of wireless broadband, and I do not want the government to do anything to jeopardize our (albeit limited) access to the net. The FCC was set up to make decisions that will benefit a majority of the citizenry, and those I have characterized in the past as “Net Neutrality advocates,” although very vocal, are indeed an extremely small group of the population. They use questionable tactics to present a large group of followers, and perform ad hominem attacks on any institution that rejects their position. But again, they appear to have a crystal ball to look into the future, and they clearly see a disaster looming for our nation. If you do have that crystal ball, can I have Puerto Rico’s winning lotto numbers for this Friday?
But getting back to the FCC’s attempt to regulate wireless broadband, I think the FCC should keep its hands off it. The Hispanic Community will greatly appreciate it, because right now, without government intervention, it is working for us.
