Limitless Choices For Information- Bad?

In the never ending quest to control what you see, hear, write, etc, the powers that be have unveiled a relatively new target, the Internet. Yes, folks, the world wide web needs to be controlled. Perhaps someone  thought it was the wild, wild west and it needed to be tamed. No matter because Mr Obama has a potential new appointee of whom we should all be wary. His name is Cass Sunsteinand he  is an Obama buddy from the University of Chicago Law School. He has been nominated to be the head of the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs. Mr Sunstein has been quite a prolific writer and not at all bashful about expressing his opinions. Let us take a look at just a few.

  • 2007-  Ban on hunting in the US
  • 2008- Angry emails should be technologically prevented from being sent for a 24 hour cooling  off period
  • The Internet is anti-democratic, i.e. too many choices . He said that limitless individual choices as far as communications are concerned is not necessarily in the best interest of  citizenship and self-government

Think about that last one while you ponder another Sunstein concept, discussed in 2004, that animals should have the ” right to sue with human beings as their representatives”. Let me get this straight. Too much info is bad for good citizenship but your dog could be allowed to bring a lawsuit? Should this guy be allowed to regulate anything, much less the Internet?
