On Net Neutrality

An attack on Net Neutrality is an attack on democracy, as is anything that diminishes the free flow of information. One of the most unfortunate pieces of legislation in American history was the passage of the 1996 Telecommunications Act, giving a few corporations the right to own the majority of our mainstream media outlets. As a result, the Internet has become a great bastion of our democracy. Anything that makes it easier for people to get their information on the Internet (or goods and services, for that matter) from giant corporate entities whose money can buy them more exposure and influence than anyone else, is something that all of us should be concerned about.

One wonders these days, where will it ever end? When our own government is chopping wood and carrying water for the very entities whose excesses it should be protecting us from, then we have a problem. 

I will do everything in my power to protect Net Neutrality.
