You may not be aware – and you may be – that the FCC passed new regulations on the Internet at the end of last month. If you’re not aware, the FCC commissioner got what he wanted, and the regulating machine that is the government has a leg up.
Net Neutrality, it’s called. Net Neutrality: the harmless, positive-sounding word that doesn’t mean what it actually does. Net Neutrality is the government taking over the Internet and turning it into a regulated commodity.
Just recently, the 400 page regulation was released for public viewing. Upon reading it, we can understand who is behind it, and what net neutrality is really trying to do.
Free Press, which is an activist group founded by a man who wants to “remove brick by brick the capitalist system itself” and rebuild it on “socialist principles,” is cited 46 times in the 400 page regulation as need to monitor and control content on the Internet.
The internet is one of the last truly free things we have in America and across the world. The internet has allowed for revolutions to flourish and free thought to prosper. The internet can be whatever it wants to be because it is still free. No one regulates the internet, because no one can regulate the realm in which we speak freely. The internet was just that.
The internet would turn into a beautiful realm of free thought and expression into a public “utility,” subject to pervasive oversight and control by the authority that can’t balance a budget or understand the very plain Second Amendment.
There is nothing neutral about government control. There is only power and money to gain for some of the most powerful in the world.
I love the internet. And I know you do to. Stand up, tell your congressman, and fight this internet commodification. Most importantly, More guns equal less crime, go out and buy yourself a gun! You’ve been listening to Come and Talk It! with Michael Cargill.
