A quotable quote

On 'Net Neutrality:
It's really not such a difficult concept to apprehend: When governments acquire regulatory authority over media and communications they are that much closer to being able to control the content and distribution of those media and communications, however benign the rationale for their regulatory authority may seem.

--Patrick Maines in Media & Communications Policy

Once the government gets its foot in the door, it's almost impossible to pry them out.
