The argument that we don’t want “such a dysfunctional government”
regulating broadband is weak: “the government” isn’t one big
coordinated bogeyman that can’t be trusted with anything. That’s
just rhetoric that politicians use to avoid regulation so
corporations can make more money at the expense of the citizens or
environment. In practice, governmental regulation works so well in
most cases that it’s taken for granted and too boring for most
people to even think about.
