physically speaking, I'm not sure its possible for this to happen. I'm no IT specialist but the FCC is sure trying to mess with the 1st Amendment. any IT specialists here able to elaborate on the feasibility of the FCC doing this?

 

this guy is somewhat eccentric in how he acts but what he speaks about is intriguing.. I think there's too many networks and routers, bridges and what not to get a control of. unless companies and network specialists are forced to route all traffic through a central location

what shocked me is, from what I understand is that the internet is a mass group of servers and computers interconnected with a world wide reach. to try and funnel or channel it all through one central location would take years.. I'd be dead by that time I'm sure

You do realise that the FCC only has jurisdiction within the US, and that the US doesn't own the internet, right?  The only part of it they could ever take over, is the bit of it that resides in the US.

The Internet is not controlled by the USA or any nation for that matter, so the FCC only has authority in the USA.

 

Last time I checked the FCC is not a global entity.
