My keys are hot and so is my mind. I had to take a small break for the holdiays, I know I failed at NANOWRIMO, and that’s okay. Blogmas will work out because I love Christmas and can’t wait for that.
Now, while I was away, the F.C.C. wants to get rid of net neutrality. Let’s discuss this a bit. Are you a parent, a student, or anyone who enjoys the free reign that our internet currently give us? I am very blessed, and if you’re able to read this, you are too. Now imagine that you didn’t have that free reign and that you had to pay to go on social media or had to pay to email your teachers/professors. Is that a world you want to live in? Not I. I can’t see this being successful.
Don’t get me wrong, in some ways it may be. Without being able to or wanting to pay for the ability to access certain applications, we might actually have a disconnected world, like people have been begging for. People will indeed have to put their phones down if its not ringing constantly, due to messages or anything else.
Even with that being a possible positive, there may be far more negative that outweighs it, Some people make money creating content, stores through the web, that can hurt the economy and we could put more people in our country at risk for not being able to make a living for themselves.
We have until December 14th until the F.C.C. makes their votes against Title 2 that makes it so we can access everything. Without it we are looking at an extra $100 or so a month for addons, including news stations, social media, music, messaging, gaming, and other things we currently take for granted that we don’t realize, and we don’t want people to realize it when it is gone.
So the question: What can you, the American people, do?
The F.C.C. has chosen to ignore the voice of the American people, so now is the time to bear what you have.
On December 7th, all across the country, people are gathering to be able to fight against this with peaceful protests outside of Verizon stores.
