    Ah the internet, it is one of the most powerful tools humankind has invented in recent times.
    It gives us the freedom to talk with eachother, argue with eachother, allows us to look at cute cat photos, watch videos, play games and many more.
    It is a great source of commerce, trade, entertainment and interactivity.
    Not since the invention of the telephone has there been a great source of personal conversation both good and bad.
    But today we have to fight for it, net neutrality currently protects us and ourr freedoms but now that is on the chopping block thanks to the FCC and corporate interests.
    Very soon thee could be internet slow lanes where only companies would be able to have the funds to make their websites faster while the rest of us will have to load websites ten times slower then they do now.
    Action must be taken so spread the word and listen to those who know why ending net neutrality will be a very bad thing indeed and contact your congressman.

    The only problem is I really dont know if this will work, the US government is full of stupid people who probably think a computer is a magic box and the internet is some sort of alien technology far beyond human science.

    Notice the immense silence from the Alt-Right and the Right Wing Youtube Channels about this subject lol.

    They know they can't even defend this bullshit. They're too afraid to post anything about it.

    Mark Dice Nothing
    Crowder Nothing (about the current one old video stupid and debunked)
    Rebel Media Nothing
    Sargon Nothing
    Paul Joseph Watson Nothing but an old video already debunked
    Ben Shapiro Nothing just more Liberal bashing

    even the SJW bashers aren't saying shit about the subject just more SJW bashing like usual.

    Those channels won't dare to talk about there idiotic opinions on the subject matter, they just go for easy SJW targets. They're too afraid to defend there God Trump on this situation.

    These are the same people that said the banks should have failed because that's the law of competition.

    Because Corporations Lie all the time and the Government needs to handle the issues of the free market almost all the time when it gets out of hand.

    Same thing happened with the Lead industry, and among other things. Why do you think we have to have rules about Labels?

    To say the Free Market fixes itself is a lie people love telling themselves. It only works when people play by the rules and by rules I mean being Honest about your product or what you're doing.

    When when people play by the rules there are holes. Also you can't expect people to just be honest. Thee are no provisions for that.

    according to some articles I read if 4chan really cares about Net Neutrality, they really shot themselves in the foot for helping Trump get elected just because memes if Trump successfully dismantles Net Neutrality.

    As we all know by now President Trump's appointed FCC Chairman Ajit Pai, a former lawyer from Verizon, is expected to announce a vote on a plan to end Net Neutrality as soon as November 22nd, the day before Thanksgiving. Millions of Americans have spoke out against this plan, but the FCC, under the sway of corporations like Comcast, AT&T, Time Warner, and Verizon, are moving forward nonetheless.

    The corporations that want to take complete control of the web and dismantle Net Neutrality are the same people that finance the campaigns of climate deniers and sell advertisements to fossil-fuel polluters. It's time for Congress to step in and defend the open internet just as they did under the Obama Administration when Republicans tried to pass SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act), PIPA (Protect IP Act) through the House and Senate but ultimately failed.

    I urge everyone here to spread the word and sign this online petition before it's too late:
