Yes, this is exactly what I was wondering. WHY?

If political speech is protected, why exactly are they tracking it? Why is it important to identify the ringleaders of popular opinion? Isn't it a waste of effort to track something you're not theoretically allowed to use?

This raises all sorts of red flags.

+ - Electric Neutrality: An Alternative Perspective on Net Neutrality

I have been comparing it to the shipping carrier networks, but that works best with people who already understand common carrier and how it relates to physical carriage. A couple days ago, I thought of a different service to compare it to, and it is proving much easier to explain to people who are less familiar with limited competition networks. I created a YouTube video that explores how electricity network neutrality is critical to protecting the free market in electric appliances."

Of course you can't flap your arms and fly to the moon. After a while you'd run out of air to push against.
