Net Neutrality has not been a totally liberal versus conservative debate. Conservatives are beginning to see the light and lining up against the attempt by the government to grab the reins of control over our Internet. Liberals, on the other hand, have mostly fallen for the lie that net neutrality is needed to “protect” the Internet or to make the “Internet” more readily available. It’s just not true…
Net Neutrality is about one thing: power. Liberals (and Republicans who like government power) are simply looking for a way to ensure government control over the Internet. As technology progresses the Internet has become a tool of freedom, used by oppressed (and free) people everywhere to push for more liberty. The Internet, as it currently is, terrifies governments because of the inherent opportunity it offers the masses. Knowledge is at your fingertips, and as everyone knows, knowledge is power. This is why the oppressive regimes of the world ALL regulate Internet use – China, North Korea, Cuba, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, etc. The government in each of these nations has final control over what happens with the Internet in their nations. China has even gotten American companies to help them censor the Internet…
Believing that Net Neutrality is a very bad idea, and believing as I do that Net Neutrality could do more to harm our freedom than almost anything else Obama has done over the last 6 years, I love seeing videos like this one where pseudo-intellectual liberals get put into their place with facts.
There is no near “monopoly” on the Internet. Anyone willing to spend the millions of dollars it takes to build the infrastructure necessary to meet the needs of a population can do that. For the liberals, getting rid of the “near” monopoly means setting a new total monopoly controlled by the government.
Government control is never a good thing. Anyway, watch and laugh!
