http://www.guardian.co.uk/books/2001/jun/28/londonreviewofbooks Cass Sunstein is a Harvard Law Professor and has been named to be Obama's director of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, the White House’s regulatory review office. The article above was from 2001' but is presented as background. The reason it's of any importance IMO pertains to the raising of the issue of the Fairness Doctrine. Fairness Doctrine in some sense makes no difference IMO because you are debating over a gov't sphere of control. They license who operates in that sphere in the first place so they have ever right to dictate what is said and how it's presented. No, I don't believe they should be doing that but we sit silent like lab rats and let them so there you go. The internet however is the new frontier and yes it has it's wild west frontier aspects but it also has it's way many more beauties just the same. Will the powers that be, both democrat and republican equally IMO feel threatened by growing popular decent, especially in the area of the net and begin to move to regulate but under an ideal of promoting democratic ideals over created threats of individualistic ideals? Is the individualist about to be listed in the halls of evil along with the likes of Hitler, Saddam, Osama and other modern day manifestations of evil? Paranoia? Could well be because as the article pointed out, much of this might not pass Constitutional muster but I'd also like to point out that the radio waves are controlled by gov't and this doesn't stop regulation in that area. Internet service as well is provided over mostly if not all means of gov't regulated access so I have to question just how far we would be insulated from gov't intrusion? History is loaded with events where the outspoken became seen as enemies of society all by virtue of edicts from the powers of the State. I'd stick this one in a drawer close by just as a means to watch from the edges. We face some tough days ahead and when things don't go right and decent steps up, the powers that be can do unthinkable things to protect themselves and their positions. They are after all, only human!
