Neutralizing the Net?

Today is the big day, regarding net neutrality. A lot of people aren’t paying enough attention to it!

You do understand that all of our favorite websites will begin to cost money out of our pockets if they get rid of it, right?

Imagine how strenuous that will be on daily workers who sit behind a screen all day, and for those who use the internet for fun and enjoyment, or even the kids who bust their asses to get a decent education… this nation makes us pay for enough in our lives, don’t let the net become yet another currency sucking monster!

Your favorite YouTubers? Paying money, You want to watch them? Pay that money. You want to go visit tumblr, google, and Facebook? You better pay that damn money… doesn’t that sound just stupid and sad?

Net Neutrality is the basic principle that prohibits internet service providers like AT&T, Comcast and Verizon from speeding up, slowing down or blocking any content, applications or websites you want to use. Net Neutrality is the way that the internet has always worked.

All of that will change. You will no longer be able to access whatever you want, when surfing the web. You will have to pay for your internet services, and then pay for any sites you would like to visit. How is that fair? It’s yet another freedom that the higher ups are trying to take away and control.

Net Neutrality is the internet’s main principle, it preserves our rights to communicate freely online. It’s literally free speech. It meansthat ISPs should be able to provide us with open networks, and shouldn’t block any applications or content that override said networks. The ISP should have no interference with the content you view online. You wouldn’t want your phone company telling you who you can call, right? So why would anyone even consider it with their internet?If Net neutrality is taken away, you will no longer be in controlof what you want to see, instead, someone else will be making that decision for you! How crazy is that?? This does not sound like a progression in our nation, and it sure as hell doesn’t sound like any freedom.

We are already giving our government too much power, why do we keep filling up their  pockets? But you know what I think? I think, at the end of the day, it really isn’t up to us, the people, but up to the corporations, because the corporations slide money into the government’s pockets to get their bills passed,then, we, the consumers, add more money to the corporation’s pockets by paying for their services online. 

The rich get richer and the poor get poorer. 

After a decade long battle, the FCC adopted the strong Net Neutrality rules based on Title II of the Communication Act, which gave internet users very strong protection.

But now, Trump’s FCC chairman, Ajit Pai – a former Verizon lawyer – is running rapid to destroy Net Neutrality. Trump is a business man, Pai used to represent a huge phone company. Phone and cable companies have been attacking and filing suits ever since the Net Neutrality rules were adopted… See how it’s all connected?

Let that sink in. Do something about it!
