Why is the government so bent on stuffing up the internet?

They don't understand the technology and:
a. Refuse to learn or consult experts.
b. Don't care about wanting to learning.
c. Lack the cognitive ability or have some learning difficulty.

And/or do they:
d. Have a personal agenda that is disconnected from reality.
e. Have a faulty perception of reality.

Or of course:
f. All of the above.

They are good at trotting out the old "Think of the Children" and "Think of the Terrorists" reasons as expected. But no so good it seems at listening to the real experts.

Politics depresses me.
