Get ready for this argument:

Over at "Net Neutrality' Is Akin to Socialism

It's over-the-top, as you might expect. Includes passages like this:
Back in 1944, Friedrich Von Hayek, who later came to receive the Nobel Prize in economics in 1974, published his most-read book -- "The Road To Serfdom" -- in which he explained that government control over the private means of production must spiral into a lack of political freedom. If people don't have control of their private property, they cannot fund political pluralism.
When you see Hayek quoted, you're dealing with a libertarian private-property character.

Look for Net Neutrality to be something the Tea Party crowd will oppose. And Republicans.


Liberals don't like Hayak because he won't shoot them up with stimulus crack like their favorite "uncle" Keynes.

If you're going present yourself as an authority on Hayek, you might want to, you know, spell his name correctly, Anon. You wouldn't want to look like an idiot or anything.
