Net neutrality = egalitarianism

This article by Capitalism Magazine perfectly captures my thoughts on net neutrality. When I first heard about this concept several years ago, it immediately became obvious who would be the winners of such a law. And it certainly isn't the ISPs. Google, much to my dismay, was strongly advocating for a law defending net neutrality. Of course, they would reap the benefits of such a law, because ISPs would be unable to limit traffic to their sites. But why should ISPs not be able to control the data sent over their networks. It is their networks after all. They spent billions of dollars creating that network, they should be able to profit handsomely from it. That's what the right to property is all about.
