Personally I like the sound of net neutrality, it sounds like a very good idea, but at the same time I cringe to think the government will make the decisions and become the traffic police and here's why:
Back in the 90s Bill Clinton signed into law something known as "The Fairness Doctrine" and similar to Net Neutrality the FCC became the police of radio airwaves for around a decade (until it was repealed that is). What happened was the FCC abused their power by shutting down a bunch of radio shows (that where more or less conservative or rebellious against the current administration) and later we had around 70% of all local radio shows shutting down. Only the major ones benefited in the end and bought up all the airwaves.
Seriously don't want history to repeat itself so I'm a bit worried.
