Karl Bode goes on a tear. Go read it. Worth the screen time.
The part I like best:
Anti-municipal broadband bills are protectionist nonsense crafted by predatory bullies and passed by corrupt political halfwits. It doesn't matter whether you like the idea of community broadband, and indeed there's often much to dislike in implementation -- but regardless of your beliefs -- local infrastructure decisions should be up to the local community, not a disinterested corporate giant half a world away (especially one that has already failed that community on the connectivity front). Those who support these bills support protectionist rules and government erosion of rights while professing to loathe regulation. They also support the very broken government-for-hire corruption they claim to protest.
