Net Neutrality is an Orwellian Phrase for Government Direction of the Internet

Senior Fellow George Gilder has shot a little arrow into the Obama Administration plans for "net neutrality". The Tuesday Wall Street Journal carries George's attack.

The author of Life After Television, Microcosm and Telecosm, among others, has been trying hard to make the point that the very cutting edge of our economy is high technology and its abundant success is the product of freedom from government over-regulation. Obama and Co., he says, hope to change that.

Net neutrality is Orwellian. It is further evidence of America's careening drive into a planned economy--and stagnation.
