Net Neutrality is Good, m’kay?

Research and development, as well as production, of what is now called the internet was paid for by the public, through taxes. Now, this remarkable communication and information device is available to people throughout the world. So, of course, our beloved American leaders want it for themselves.

‘Net neutrality’ is a concept that has been used to mean that all websites are provided with no preferences. So in this current situation, which is being compromised, my website loads as quickly and is as available as any other. Freedom of choice. If the attacks on Net Neutrality are successful, only the largest companies will have available websites. I know of no larger attack on the 1st amendment of the Unites States constitution in our complete history. Every single voice, other than the ruling class, will be shut down – if they get their way. I cannot stress enough, the importance of this. So, you are either with us, or neither of us will ever be heard again.

  1. I’ve got to go with whatever Al Gore says on this issue.

    After all, the internet is his gift to all of us.

  2. Net Neutrality is important, but it’s not quite “my website loads as quickly and is as available as any other”. If you host your website on a system at the end of a 2400 baud modem, it’s going to be slow. If you cough up some dough and get a broadband connection, things get better. Like our health care or legal system, people who can pay more get better service. What service? NETWORK service. Who you are, or what CONTENT flows across that network should not be the concern of the ISPs.

  3. Thanks Jute,
    Yes, it is the opportunity to have our website loaded and reasonably available that will be lost, but net neutrality keeps the ISPs from preventing sites from being loaded quickly or at all, because they don’t like the content or they want to make more money. The end result if the internet is lost to the people is all media will be controlled by the ruling corporations. As all of our rights are being removed, police and prison populations at an all time high, no privacy at all from the ruling class (supported by both political parties) – this appears to be all that is keeping us from a totalitarian state.
