Whenever governments take control over an industry, it is not long before corruption overrides theory. If one wants to know if net neutrality will be good or bad for consumers, just look at the strongest advocates. Why do you think that Google, YouTube, Governor Jerry Brown, and the legislature of California are so fond of net neutrality?
Democrat Representative John Garamendi added racism and sexism to the argument by saying the senators who support Kavanaugh are white racists who are hostile to women. [The allegations against Kavanaugh have nothing to do with race, but the left has added that issue to present themselves as virtuous and to conceal their true political motivation.]
Despite California having a vigorous economy, 20% of Californians are suffering economic hardship, mostly due to the cost of housing. Moderate wage earners age 35 to 44 are leaving California due to rising crime, heavy traffic, a growing homeless epidemic and, especially high taxes. [These are the natural effects of collectivism. Only the wealthy and the impoverished will remain in the state. Eventually, everyone will be impoverished except the ruling elite.]
The ranch owner has has repeatedly warned the government not to leave long stretches of the southwest border secured by nothing more than a barbed-wire fence. [In spite of brave talk in Washington DC about stopping illegal immigration, the government has done nothing to stop this armed invasion. Why do we have soldiers in over a hundred countries in the world but none at the Chilton ranch?]
Gulags were brutal labor camps used by Stalin’s Soviet dictatorship to punish “enemies of the state”, resulting in the death of more than a million people. Natacha Kennedy, a transgender lecturer at Goldsmiths, created a list of academics the student group wants to silence, and she ran a Facebook group calling for accusations of “hate crimes” to be used to silence them.
A few weeks ago, Puerto Rico raised its death toll from Hurricane Maria from 64 to 2,975. Critics say the death toll now is greatly inflated to qualify for more money from the US Congress as the Puerto Rican government has submitted a request for $139-billion for new projects. The likelihood of this being granted is in proportion to the number of deaths attributed to the tragedy.
Both sides appear to be led by collectivists who believe essentially the same thing. In Germany, the majority of anti-immigration protesters are NOT of the extreme right, but people who have no organization to represent them and are being manipulated into supporting either the extreme leftists or the extreme rightists.
Google stores your location if you open Google Maps, if you use Google’s weather app, and they also track your search history even if you are not looking for something that is related to a particular location. The last resort is to give up the convenience of a mobile phone. Something to think about.
