Remember back when the decision was made to repeal Net Neutrality? Outrage ensued, since Net Neutrality would essentially be the first step to making the internet and it’s providers a public utility. The same people that were outraged then over the repeal are the same people applauding the decision to remove Alex Jones from practically all internet platforms. How is that you may ask? Well, those people, they believe that only their speech and their expression are the only approved or allowed forms.
How about the baker/artist in Colorado who was taken to the Supreme Court? He was made to fight for his right to express himself, however he chooses. Yet, to this day, he is still fighting, and he is still used as an example of how religion is a weapon used against homosexuality. Yet, not a peep from the gay community or their champions on Muslim bakeries. Is there any Muslim bakery that would willfully make a wedding cake for a gay wedding? Must be nice to willfully don blinders and only look and blame in one direction.
There are now reports that Verizon throttled service and it impacted response times and communication during rescue operations in the ongoing California wildfires. Whether is was data that was controlled or cellular phone reception or service, I couldn’t tell you. But, in any case, was this due to the repeal of Net Neutrality? Maybe and maybe not. The investigation continues, yet Verizon holds many government contracts. Will that have an impact on the findings? Maybe and maybe not.
In closing, I would like to ask you, the reader a few questions.
1. What do you think or believe about Net Neutrality now?
2. Should the internet become a utility?
3. Do providers, like private establishments (restaurants, bakeries, etc.) retain the right to refuse service?
4. Where do our rights come from and who presides over them?
5. What is or should be the catalyst for the government to step in and begin stripping citizens of their rights, without due diligence or due process?
