Net Neutrality is in danger thanks to the maneuverings of Big Cable and their puppet, the FCC chair Tom Wheeler. This country already has a severe problem with the technological gulf created by the information haves and have-nots, which often falls on socioeconomic lines. By giving certain corporate interests a “fast lane” how can we ever hope to bridge that gap? I studied mass communications in grad school, and now I live in New Mexico, a poor state with internet usage well below average.
This is a personal issue for me, but with huge ramifications for the entire nation. If you support Net Neutrality, make your voice heard by September 15th. We’re running out of time to be on the the right side of history.
To understand just how bad it is, John Oliver’s examination is amazing. Brutal, but amazing.
