Who Will Save The Internet?

Gee while everyone is laser focused on the Trump thing there was something more important that rhetoric of the day….but few seem to notice…..they were too busy calling anyone that does not agree with them all the insulting garbage they could throw.

Thanx to Trump and his minions we may be losing our internet neutrality….if that is the case who will save us and our internet…..

Tomorrow, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) will vote to initiate a process to repeal the strong net neutrality rules that have been in place since 2015.

These rules protect the internet as an open, decentralized, and level playing field, free from content discrimination. They ensure that you—not your internet service provider (usually your cable or phone company)—control what you can access online.

Again who will save our internet?

Three years ago, as the Federal Communications Commission pondered what to do about net neutrality, Last Week Tonight host John Oliver sprang into action, offering an impassioned plea to his viewers to flood the agency’s inbox with messages in defense of a free and open Internet. By the next day, the otherwise dull F.C.C. was at the center of a media firestorm as its Web site crashed under a sudden surge of traffic.

Now, with net neutrality in greater danger than ever, Oliver is hoping for a reprise of his 2014 success. Earlier in May, he urged viewers to go to his own Web site, “gofccyourself.com,” which simplifies the commenting process for leaving messages for the F.C.C. “Every Internet group needs to come together like you successfully did three years ago,” the comedian said this month on his show. “Every subculture must join as one. Gamers, YouTube celebrities, Instagram models, and even Tom from MySpace, if you’re still alive. We need all of you.”

Glad to see someone is stepping up and doing the right thing.

  1. When tyranny raises its ugly head there is nothing that any amount of people can say to change anything at all. If the FCC wants to kill the net neutrality they are going to do it and that is that! The good thing is that some enterprising Americans are going to perfect their new “Mesh Net” program … a program that can eventually connect every computer with every other computer through small individual groups maintaining their own abilities to put stuff onto the Internet … a system that totally bypasses the big providers. Of course that kind of thing smacks of the old Citizens Band Radio thing … remember that? And if it works then soonere or later the powers that be will make it illegal to participate on one of the mesh networks and that will be the end of that.

      1. That thing will be hacked and under government control in no time at all… just watch and see if I am not right.

    1. You got your ears on, good buddy? I got Smokeys all over my tail pipe. They just won’t leave me alone. It’s like Communist Russia in here anymore. Where’s Bandit when you need him?

      1. Hey good buddy! I don’t know where Bandit is but I do know that I am glad that you have visited this blog and I hope you will come back again and again.

  2. As the Internet has the main uses of being able to market goods to consumers, control celebrity adoration, and monitor the thoughts of individuals, surely tighter restrictions would be self-defeating?
    Just a thought.
    Regards, Pete.

  3. This what an idiot who does not understand anything does… Like Socialized Roads create even distribution of goods so does socialized Internet…. The simple fact that socialism and capitalism often do mix is lost on many!
