This sounds very, very familiar:

" Let me be clear...
If you like your internet speed, you can keep your internet speed!
If you like your internet provider, you can keep your internet provider!"

God, are we really going to go through this AGAIN?!

It's a logical move. He seems bent on controlling everything, and the internet is the one real source of free information left. Control that, and he's basically got it all. Interesting times we live in.

The net is a project that got out of control and into our everyday lives. They probably never meant that to happen. Now that the genie has got out of the bottle they are thinking of ways to reign it back under state control. That could be why we are hearing things such as Putin wants to have a Russian version.

You have to admit this isn't surprising. The government could never let the people have control over something as powerful as the internet.

Internet censorship and corporatisation was always coming.

The only 2 questions you needed to be asking were:

When will they try and take it from us?

and

Are we going to sit back and let them?


Sadly yes they will let them take it from us..people these days are dumbed down in so many ways that make the revolution so much harder to get rolling..

From earlier this year:

While you weren’t paying attention, as The Inquisitr reported:, “Over the weekend the Obama administration announced that the federal government will not renew a management contract with the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers when the existing one expires next year. The decision appears to follow a proposal by the European Union to establish a “clear timeline” to take the company and the Internet duties it performs global.”

Yes a quote within a quote. Taken from an article Clyde Lewis wrote here.

Here's a link to the article he quoted:
Obama Administration Internet Control Plan Prompts Censorship Concerns.

I could have sworn I once read a conspiracy theory that some backbone technology for the Internet -- maybe fiberoptic cable? -- was actually a "gift" from aliens. If there's any truth to that at all, it was an incredibly left-handed gift.

The Internet is a constant headache for the oligarchs. In its current form, it is far harder to control in a top-down way than other media.

Fiber optics have had a very long development cycle. The first technology that could be considered fiber optics was developed in the last 1700's, they were in use during the 1800's, and eventually became something similar to what we see today in the 1960's. This technology did not come from aliens, though it's worth pointing out that some of the Roswell debris did describe fiber optics 11 years before the technology should have existed in that form.
