SAVE THE INTERNET
Regardless of where you fall on the political spectrum – Republican, Democrat, Conservative, Liberal, Don’t Know, Don’t Care, Anarchist, Lunatic… even the “Shut Up & Stick To Music” camp, etc – there are some issues which just matter to everyone: they affect you even if you don’t know about them, or even if you don’t care.
And they affect all of us: i.e. do we spend our tax money on improving America & building jobs & promoting health & education or do we spend it on wars abroad? Or do we prosecute billionaires who steal millions of dollars from the working class? Or do we take a stand to protect our privacy when we find out the government is spying on everything we do?
…either way, I think one of the most relevant issues of our day is Net Neutrality: protecting every person’s access to the fastest internet possible; keeping the internet as fair as possible and as free as possible.
It seems every few months I hear about some new threat to internet freedom. It’s always some new urgent announcement: “tomorrow is our last chance to speak up and protect internet freedom” like literally… this the fucking 50th time its happened in the last 10 years, but I just found out its happening again.
And THIS FRIDAY is the deadline. The new deadline. I think it’s bullshit, and I think there should be legislation implemented that makes it more difficult to try and pass new laws which are unconstitutional. Because currently the people with the most money just keep trying again and again to push through laws which benefit them, and it’s up to everyone else to waste our time trying to keep an eye on them. It should be the other way around: if you bring a bill to the table which turns out to be unconstitutional you should get a Big Fine for wasting everyone’s time, and for endangering the constitution. That way the onus falls on the big corporations who keep trying to seize control of the internet. That way it’s up to the private companies who try and shit on our Constitutional rights. Not on us. Nobody has time fer that.
Anyhow, that little rant aside, i would like to tell you three things:
1. I hope you’re having a great day!
2. I’m sorry if you don’t like politics, or you feel I should not like politics, or you wish I didn’t talk about politics. If you don’t like, just don’t read. But don’t tell me what to do! 🙂
