A bill implementing said extreme solution
Like, I totally understand the reasoning, but as a non-American it is kind of terrifying to imagine the US government having that kind of direct power over the internet.
I suppose that it isn't that much different than the status quo, whereby the US has that power by proxy through a corporation, but y'all made Agent Orange your president so...
@msh Congress has virtually absolute power over interstate/foreign commerce (so basically all commerce). But, because Congress can never agree on anything controversial, they never use it to this kind of degree. That's how the US Constitution is designed, and it works pretty well when there are sane people in it. We have some work to do on that front though.
