Yep, with hardly a whimper of protest.

The major problem with government regulation is that it freezes innovation. Things get stuck in place. The U.S. went almost 5 decades with almost no innovation on our phones (essentially only longer cords and switching from rotary phone to touch tones).

When they deregulated the telephone communications industry, it took off.
Look at all the innovations we have today.

The Internet is now the engine of innovation. ‪‎Net Neutrality‬ will ruin it and stifle (or mute) the freedom of the net in every way they can.

This isn't true at all. We went from houses with one phone who were often sharing lines with neighbors to phones in any room in the house. During that time we added call waiting, caller id, conference calling, then we went cordless, etc. To say there was no innovation is being purposely blind.

Don't insult me, I know the history. Actually engage and speak to my post. You're pretending there was no innovation, I'm pointing out just a few of the innovations you purposely overlooked.

I want you to be honest and point out where this industry lacked in innovation compared to comparable industries. Please do this and don't flee the discussion as in the past.
