So, for a long time, there has been constant pressure to pass "controversial" legislation (quoted because often there isn't even a controversy -- literally almost no one wants a lot of it) that the people at large are not calling for. Not even a minority of the people. Sometimes it is tricky to determine who is behind the curtain controlling things via their influence (see: bribe money).

There is solution to this confusion via a current hot topic: net neutrality

This is the most blanket example of this "circumstance" that I can recall.

THE PEOPLE are not calling for this. Not even a minority of the people. CORPORATE AMERICA (specifically tech companies) is not calling for this beyond a handful of companies.

FIND who is pushing this agenda. Go up the hierarchical tree of who answers to who. At the top you will find your "powers that be". Maybe then we can call them out by name, by their true identities, these sick, greedy individuals. The answer is more difficult than the cable companies. Who do they answer to? Go up a few more rungs, and we should have the culprits.

Makes me sick.

wait, I am confused.
Net Neutrality is already instituted.

The current corporate jerkwads and the politicians that they purchased are now and then trying to end it in favor of a few companies taking over the bulk ISPs and turning it into a subscription service.

If your curious who is the big players trying to kill it off, you can simply use the wiki:

Opposition includes the Cato Institute, the Competitive Enterprise Institute, the Goldwater Institute, Americans for Tax Reform, and the Ayn Rand Institute. Opponents of net neutrality include hardware companies and members of the cable and telecommunications industries, including major telecommunications providers

Yeah, we are waiting for TTIP. We kicked ACTA in the bucket, and have a very suspicious eye on TISA, too.

Hey, even our legislators are NOT entitled to TAKE A VIEW ON ALL OF TTIP! But they would have to stand up for it, so they are reluctant, too - *phew*

Must we figure out these acronyms?

Will the voice of the people ever be heard with earmuffs made of money?

Obama has been campaigning heavily for the Trans-Pacific Partnership . (To share again)In short, it affects the internet, Monsanto getting the go ahead in many places, etc. globally.

"As Obama tries to lock down Trans-Pacific Partnership, huge first-of-its-kind international campaign shines a light on TPP’s secretive Internet censorship plan"

To date, all TPP negotiations have taken place in near-total secrecy, with just 600 industry lobbyists and government bureaucrats at the table. Citizens and public interest groups have been excluded from the talks.Source

All under secrecy.

There's a petition going on now(can't share here) an many sites opposing it.
