Abstract:     
This Essay takes issue with two prevailing arguments. The first endorses content net neutrality while the second holds that the Internet is a public domain with the widest possible scope for freedom of expression. I argue that some value screening of content may be beneficial to society and that the implications from affording the Internet the widest possible scope can be very harmful. I differentiate between net neutrality and content net neutrality. While I accept the first concept I reject the second for ethical and practical reasons. To fortify my promotional approach against content net neutrality I discuss terrorism and hate speech.
