With net neutrality everybody is treated equally...

... whether you are Walmart
... whether you are a small business
... whether you are a kid doing research
... whether you are a university professor

It is absolutely imperative that we retain net neutrality

Thanks for the FCC link. Net Neutrality is big. We need to get behind this. Again. :pint:

Honest question, in no way trying to be snarky...

What could calling your local congress person, or whoever, actually do?

Possibly more than gang-mailing the FCC.

Nothing. Was watching a Netflix doc called Saving Capitalism or something along those lines. An interesting statistic was shown that law gets passed or rejected at the same % whether or not there is public support for it. When the billionaire class is against a bill it gets rejected 100% of the time.

So what it boils down to is that America is a full blown Oligarchy of which the 99% has 0 voice. Our mainstream media has been censored for years and now they're taking that fight to the last frontier for acquiring free uncensored knowledge, the internet. Congrats #Murica #NorthKorea #China

This ends in either Revolution or Slavery. Our choice...

Just a terrible decision. If done by the FCC hopefully it can be undone by the FCC when President Clownface Von Fuckstick and his sidekick Opie are out of office.

It can always be undone. Government is simply an ongoing conversation. Unfortunately in these current days of Crony Capitalism, good luck overturning something the billionaire class already gets their greedy lil paws on. It starts by removing both corrupted political parties from power, whether by vote (good luck cuz the system is rigged) or by force if necessary.

Breaking: On Wednesday, May 16th, the Senate will vote on a resolution to save net neutrality. This is our best chance to stop the FCC from letting Internet providers like Comcast and Verizon ruin the Internet with throttling, censorship, and expensive new fees. Write your lawmakers now!

Yeah...last I saw the reversal was to become effective June 11. I hope something prevents that from happening.
