Let's put it this way...
The loss of net neutrality will be one of the BIGGEST hits to global freedom of information EVER SEEN. And if this does happen, I hope people will see
to it that those responsible are brought to swift justice.
If big brother does win out and our beloved (seriously) internet is raped and pillaged, then FINE, a lotta luck to the powers that be if they want to
track, trace, and data mine us. We'll simply revert to in-person discussions and leave the idiot boxes like humans did throughout history before we
had out flashing screens to titillate us.
Seriously though, when I REALLY think about the severity of these corporate threats to net neutrality... it's actually shocking and I almost cannot
believe we could possibly see such an outcome. It's disgusting and completely unacceptable that this is even a POSSIBILITY.
To everyone who wants complete de-regulation of big business...
You'll have digital blood on your hands too if these companies kill our protected internet commons.
