“Dismantling the basic principle that prevents companies like Comcast and Verizon from controlling what we see and do online helps no one other than telecom lobbyists and executives,” Evan Greer, Deputy Director of Fight For the Future, told Motherboard.
The repeal of net neutrality “will go down in history as one of the most blatant examples of corruption in our nation’s history,” Greer said.
“It’s not helping workers at these companies. It’s not helping people in rural communities. It’s not closing the digital divide,” Greer added. “The repeal of net neutrality is nothing but a massive government handout to some of the most unscrupulous, and least popular, corporations in the United States.”
It’s always been clear. Anyone with half a brain cell paying even a modicum of attention already knew the repeal was a crock of shit being peddled by the same folks who’ve been shoveling pigshit down our throats since shoveling pigshit down throats became profitable.
Without Net Neutrality, everything else fails. There can be no grand organization of ideas so long as profit margins are allowed to stand in the way.
We are at the beginning of a new age. It’s time we all started acting like it.
