FCC & Mega Corporate Cable, Trying To Repeal Existing Net Neutrality Rules: Internet Freedom Is Paramount What You and We Can Do
I am quite surprised that I didn't see almost anything about it on Steemit as it seems everyone here should be at the forefront of censorship issues concerning the internet. The internet just may be the greatest technology/tool we have. This post took a long time to put together but because I haven't seen anything about it and it seems very important I have compiled this extensive post.
If you want to send a letter (very easy) to the FCC you can do that here.
Censorship is a huge issue with anything in my mind but ESPECIALLY the internet. The internet is the one place that we can bypass state and nation lines, connect with people around the world, research, investigate, contribute content, and do it all without government regulation.
There are actually countries like China who already have a lot of internet censorship I pray that that does not begin to happen here as well. The truth is that just like with anything else we have influence, but we have to choose to do something with that influence.
This battle for the net has been raging on for quite some time now. Despite the fact that severe censorship has been fought and beaten before the FCC and mega cable corps are constantly trying to regulate it for more power, control and profits.
Here is a history of the net neutrality battle so far. It is not over and may never be over. We must stay vigilant!
This took me a long time to put together but I feel its important education especially for Steemians.
