As written in one of Hotonis’ posts, Cass Sunstein has been appointed as head of the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs by Obama. This gives him full control of such agencies as the Environmental Protection Agency.

How is this (imperial) appointment of Sunstein a First Amendment fail?

One of his books reveals his view that what is said online should be “regulated” in order to keep bloggers, etc. under control. Essentially, he wants to keep people from saying what they believe online if it might offend someone, or, more likely, if the government does not agree.

If he gets his way, goodbye free speech.

Who is Cass Sunstein? What is his purpose? Why do his books cause so much controversy?

Cass Sunstein is a Harvard Law School Magna Cum Laude graduate who has published a handful of books.  He has is currently teaching at Harvard Law School.

Cass Sunstein wants to allow the government to have more control over our daily lives.

Cass Sunstein pushes this idea through his books.  Throughout his books he talks about how the Government should “nudge” people in the right direction.

What else do we know about him?  Not much except that Obama has placed him at the head of the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs.  He now oversees many different organizations such as the Environmental Protection Agency and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.

So, what is the problem? Obama has now put someone that believes in enhanced governmental control in charge of two of the largest regulatory agencies in America.  If he follows through on the things that he writes about in his books, Obama’s administration will soon have more power then a ancient Egyptian Pharaoh.
