Internet neutrality is the biggest crisis with the smallest headlines of the decade. The physical internet has been a common carrier since its inception, until the FCC threw it to phone and cable companies as a gift. It needs to be taken back, and Lawrence Lessig and Robert McChesney explain why. If you don’t want to think this stuff through for yourself, there is no better guide than Lessig.
Anyone who uses the internet, and that obviously means you, needs to get involved in this. Not only are we at risk of having our pockets picked, we are liable to be blindfolded and deafened. Go here, send letters and emails as recommended, and get out your credit card: good practice for the non-deductible contributions you’ll be making for the fall elections.
