Who governs?

The FCC declares it has oversight over the Internet.  And who can object?

FCC Sets New Era Of Net Oversight,” Wall Street Journal, February 27, 2015.  FCC asserts authority to regulate the Internet.

Quo warranto?  In Marbury v. Madison, the Supreme Court decided that the Supreme Court had the final decision over what was constitutional.  I thought the Constitution didn’t give the Fed the power to regulate the Internet and that therefore that right was reserved to the States and to the people.  Tenth Amendment to the Constitution (ratified December 15, 1791).

Is the essence of governance that everyone agrees you have the power to govern?
