SUNSTEIN: Sites of one point of view agree to provide links to other sites so that if you're reading a conservative magazine, they would provide a link to a liberal site, and vice-versa, just to make it easy for people to get access to competing views.
RUSH: Stop the tape, recue that.
Which ISP is paying Elena Kagan, and by how much?
Which ISP is paying Cass Sunstein, and by how much?
Which ISP is paying Rush Limbaugh, and by how much?
Even on 501c3 non-partisan, non-advocacy sites which are PROHIBITED from taking sides, this is not the case today.
Look at the Viacommie tied MTV "Rock the Vote" links:
The poor left. They can’t get folks to go to their sites, so they have to resort to requiring the Right to link to them.
net neutrality is just plain governmental control of what you read, hear and speak, There will be no such thing as a view and and opposing view being presented. Look at Obozo, Fox News and and his view of Fox News. Obozo and Rush Limbaugh and golfing together never will happen. Obozo is an the epitome of the south end of of a northbound donkey
Hey Cass, here's your "easy access link to a competing view."
The hostility towards liberty from people in power these days is just plain scary.
Lets start building those fake, pretend liberal websites we can link to. heh.
And I suppose the web sites, particularly conservative ones, that will be offered under this program of net neutrality will obviously come from a prepared list.
...or an “approved” list.
What if the knock never comes? (Even allowing for 'vote' - should we have one - it will be too late.)

When it was announced in 2008 that Cass Sunstein would be joining the Harvard Law School faculty, Kagan said:
"Cass Sunstein is the preeminent legal scholar of our time -- the most wide-ranging, the most prolific, the most cited, and the most influential. His work in any one of the fields he pursues -- administrative law and policy, constitutional law and theory, behavioral economics and law, environmental law, to name a non-exhaustive few -- would put him in the very front ranks of legal scholars; the combination is singular and breathtaking."

[Cass Sunstein on Socialism and "wealth redistribution"]:
Sunstein has argued in favor of bringing socialism (in the form of expanded wefare benefits and wealth redistribution) to the United States, but contends that the country's "white majority" opposes such a development because of deep-seated racism:
"The absence of a European-style social welfare state is certainly connected with the widespread perception among the white majority that the relevant programs would disproportionately benefit African Americans (and more recently Hispanics)."
Sunstein depicts socialist nations as being more committed than their capitalist counterparts to the welfare of their own citizens:
"During the Cold War, the debate about [social welfare] guarantees took the form of pervasive disagreement between the United States and its communist adversaries. Americans emphasized the importance of civil and political liberties, above all free speech and freedom of religion, while communist nations stressed the right to a job, health care, and a social minimum."In 2007 Sunstein co-authored (with fellow attorney Eric A. Posner) a 39-page University of Chicago Law School paper titled "Climate Change Justice," which held that it was "desirable" for America to pay "justice" to poorer nations by entering into a compensation agreement that would result in a financial loss for the United States. The paper refers several times to "distributive justice."
[Cass Sunstein on "Climate Change" and "distributive justice"]:
Sunstein and Posner further speculate about the possibility of achieving this redistribution by means other than direct payments:
[Cass Sunstein on the "Fairness Doctrine" (restricting opposing political views)]:
Also in The Partial Constitution, Sunstein promotes the notion of a "First Amendment New Deal" in the form of a new "Fairness Doctrine" that would authorize a panel of "nonpartisan experts" to ensure that a "diversity of view[s]" is presented on the airwaves.
[Cass Sunstein on federally-funded abortions]:
With regard to citizens who object to having their tax dollars finance abortions, Sunstein writes:
"There would be no tension with the establishment clause if people with religious or other objections were forced to pay for that procedure (abortion). Indeed, taxpayers are often forced to pay for things - national defense, welfare, certain forms of art, and others - to which they have powerful moral and even religious objections."

PROFILE: ELENA KAGAN
As an undergraduate at Princeton, Kagan wrote a senior thesis titled
"To the Final Conflict: Socialism in New York City, 1900-1933."
In the "Acknowledgments" section of her work, she specifically thanked her brother Marc, whose involvement in radical causes led me to explore the history of American radicalism in the hope of clarifying my own political ideas. In the body of the thesis, Kagan wrote:
"In our own times, a coherent socialist movement is nowhere to be found in the United States. Americans are more likely to speak of a golden past than of a golden future, of capitalisms glories than of socialisms greatness. Conformity overrides dissent; the desire to conserve has overwhelmed the urge to alter. Such a state of affairs cries out for explanation. Why, in a society by no means perfect, has a radical party never attained the status of a major political force? Why, in particular, did the socialist movement never become an alternative to the nations established parties?...
"Through its own internal feuding, then, the SP [Socialist Party] exhausted itself forever and further reduced labor radicalism in New York to the position of marginality and insignificance from which it has never recovered. The story is a sad but also a chastening one for those who, more than half a century after socialisms decline, still wish to change America. Radicals have often succumbed to the devastating bane of sectarianism; it is easier, after all, to fight ones fellows than it is to battle an entrenched and powerful foe. Yet if the history of Local New York shows anything, it is that American radicals cannot afford to become their own worst enemies. In unity lies their only hope."

Sunstein needs to spend some time in a rubber room.
Nothing like being force fed.
And what would the leftist rags link to?
Absolutely nothing but other leftist rags.
They’d be forced to link to the MSM. That way folks could get opposing opinions. LOL
Just think if Thomas Paine had to attach a “Defense of Monarchy” to each of his pamphlets!
