Net Neutrality is an endangered concept - and today’s is the day to get angry and do something.
If you don’t know what Net Neutrality is or why it’s your problem, watch Last Week Tonight with John Oliver take it apart. Hilarious, on-point, very informative.
This is everybody’s problem - not just because America is still so central to so many parts of the internet, but because if they succeed in destroying Net Neutrality for the sake of higher corporate profits…well. Just think about what your country is going to do
Do you trust your government not to jump right on the band-waggon?
I sure as hell don’t.
So here’s what you can do. If you’re an American, show your disdain by writing to the FCC.
If you’re not, you still have plenty of time to participate in the Internet Slowdown.
It will take you 5 minutes and, hopefully, it will keep our internet the relatively-even playing-field and haven of innovation, activism and art that we all live in and wonder at, at least for a little while longer - which makes the effort totally worth your time.
