Net neutrality is an ongoing topic of discussion in the news today.
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) will vote to repeal the agency’s net neutrality rule on Thursday, much to the dismay of Silicon Valley and Democrats and to the cheer of conservatives.
The FCC will vote on Chairman Ajit Pai’s “Restoring Internet Freedom Order” on Thursday, which would repeal the FCC’s 2015 net neutrality rule, which regulated the internet as a public monopoly.
FCC Chairman Pai said in a recent speech that repealing net neutrality would restore the internet as a free and open platform.
“So when you get past the wild accusations, fearmongering, and hysteria, here’s the boring bottom line: the plan to restore Internet freedom would return us to the light touch, market-based approach under which the Internet thrived. And that’s why I am asking my colleagues to vote for it on December 14,” Pai concluded.
Update May 18, 2018:
Don’t be fooled by the terminology. Net neutrality isn’t a tech term that will be hard for you to comprehend. You will get it in an instant, I promise. It’s the same old socialism, just rebranded to make it tech-trendy.
There’s nothing neutral about net neutrality. It simply means everyone pays more, for things they need and don’t need, all indiscriminately, like taxes. Net neutrality is just internet socialism.
People who originally fought for net neutrality were afraid of “unregulated capitalism.” Red flags all over the place.
Why else did you think Democrats wanted it so badly?
Democrat thought process: How dare you ask for the right to pay for better service! How dare you ask to pay less to save some money and not subsidize your neighbor’s internet! Everyone pays the same and gets the same. Government tells you what you need and what you pay.
