Net Neutrality Besieged by Comcast Corp. v. FCC; The past, present, and future plight of an open Internet

The article start off with a question that has probably been asked by anyone who has ever used the internet. Who controls it? The answer seems to be a battle between commercial ISPs and the Government (FCC). The authors makes it sound like the ISPs are money hungry corporations who would literally stop at nothing to make more. The threat here is freedom. Its odd really, that everyone has been focused on the government spying on citizens personal information to try and find terrorists. The startling fact is that your everyone’s information is sold and bought at auction. After all, how can discrimination be racist if the judgments are made by computers. The Federal courts ruling for Comcast in Comcast Corp vs FCC seems to have given concrete mean for commercial industries to gather information on citizens personal lives. BTW I could care less. I am all for a free and open internet along with the consumption of information. If I go to the grocery store and all of my groceries are already set out for me I would be happy.
