During the legal fight over network neutrality — its important to remember what matters most.
While the law can and does matter, what matters most is the ethic. That is, the sense that there's something wrong with a centralized provider dictating what information you can get to, and how. A sensitivity to that kind of control is what the fight is all about. Its easy too get used to being spoon-fed; but an informed citizenry resists.
Some of this may sound woolly, but at the deepest levels this is really what the NN fight is all about, the developing ethic of decentralized information distribution. It develops when people feel angry when sites are blocked, when operators even suggest playing favorites, and so on. Americans, over a few hundred years, have developed a distaste for political censorship, but they're also developing a distaste for non-neutral information carriage.
