Comment The FCC has always been irrelevant (Score 0) 256

The FCC has never been anything but a drag on freedom, economic prosperity and technical innovation.

Without the FCC, companies would have created new technologies earlier to deal with the technical problems of a free-for-all airspace. There would have been less interference in corporate affairs (providing greater economic prosperity), and far greater freedom (no decency laws limiting speech).

Look around at other government agencies (other than the core responsibilities in millitary, judicial and police functions), and you'll see much the same story.
