For all of it’s downsides, the internet is a form a digital democracy. No matter where we come from or what we believe, the internet allows us to voice our opinions without censorship.
For Americans, that may be changing soon.
Ajit Pai, the FCC Chairman wants to remove net neutrality and let the cable companies control where we go on the internet and what opinions we voice on the various websites.
This is an attack on democracy as we know it to be. The internet is the great equalizer. It opens the door way to business, education and to the downtrodden who use the internet to right the wrongs of our society.
Please sign the petition. Without net neutrality, our democracy will be meaningless.
