Net Neutrality: We Lose Our Liberties Because We Give Them Away

net-neutrality-department-of-the-internet

Quoted from ‘Lionel’ of lionelmedia.com,

If ever we lose our liberties, if ever we lose our first amendment right to speak, it will be because WE give the rights away. Nobody will take them from us – we will give them away – stupidly. Idiotically. Without so much as a struggle we’ll hand them away, “Here, take them, take our rights, we don’t need them – because we’re stupid”.

The most important thing, number one, in any free society in order to remain free – that’s only accomplished by a free exchange of ideas. The commerce of expression. That’s critical. Anything that impinges upon that, anything that limits that, hurts us all.

   

The internet. This up until now has been free and unfettered by government and regulation. That has changed because of what Obama’s appointed FCC commissioner’s did two days ago.

The mainstream media in particular have met with not so much as a raised Botoxed eyebrow – of the long-range implications of the FCC’s net neutrality. In case you missed it, the Internet and World Wide Web are now considered a utility under Title II of the Communication Act.

All bets are off.

“Net Neutrality” yet again shows you that it stands for the proposition that Americans will applaud for (and/or accept) anything as long as it has a good label. The Patriot Act, Clean Water, No Child Left Behind, The Affordable Health Care Act, Safety in the Schools Act, – Give it a good name and nobody will question it…

You may find the following video podcast commentary regarding the recent government ‘takeover’ of the internet to be insightful, informative, interesting, enlightening, and perhaps even entertaining…


 
“The implications are mind boggling. This opens the door to licensure requirements for websites, decency regulation, fairness doctrine applications and worse.”

Although you might laugh at the following comedic video, think again… 😉
