Internet & Networking Because OSNews is technically a site from the US, and because the technology industry is decidedly a US-centric industry, we often talk about US politics having adverse effects on technology - or, the other way around. That's why I've been detailing the political movements here in The Netherlands with regards to net neutrality. After a lot of positive news, I've now got some bad news - bad news that involves the largest political party trying to block net neutrality - because one of its members of parliament, Afke Schaart, is a former KPN employee. And yes, KPN is the carrier that first announced it was going to block and throttle traffic.

Amen! Communism and Free Market may make sense and sound appealing to one or the other as long as they remain theories presented on paper. But introduce them into real life and people (selfish, greedy, irrational...) into these "systems" and it all goes South from there.

And yes, in spite of wishes of many, history does not offer a realistic implementation example of either.
