On Net Neutrality and Why Aijit Pai Is No Jedi

On Net Neutrality and Why Aijit Pai Is No Jedi

Timothy Karr

The FCC's chairman's rationale for ending Net Neutrality in 2017 was that existing Title II rules had supposedly shackled the forces of the marketplace, “deter[ing] the massive infrastructure investment that we need.” If the rules were allowed to stand, he said, we’d “pay the price in terms of less innovation.”

Karr sez:
“… Pai starred in a video dressed as a Star Wars Jedi, brandishing a lightsaber against evil internet-user safeguards.”

That’s why they call it ‘acting’. Under the costume, it turns out Pai is actually Jar Jar Binks.
