I advocate that someone make a real push for documenting consistently and periodically through agreed upon performance measures and criteria the actual effects that result from what appear to be tragic policy decisions.

If you don’t document the resultants, you can’t make the case that policy decisions are “tragic.”

In the case of net neutrality, the predictions on what will happen range from “prices will drop precipitously and nobody will notice the difference that it’s gone” to “global thermonuclear internet meltdown.”

Obviously, the extremes are bunk, being sold by political partisans, meaning that BOTH sides are “politicizing the internet.”

So, I’m looking forward to actually SEEING what happens now that net neutrality is gone. I suspect the answer to that is “not much”, but we’ll see.
