I try to stay away from stuff like this, but it's so frustrating!
Let John Oliver break it down for you and decide if you want to give the FCC a piece of your mind. Note that, for whatever reason, the FCC will require your home address and make it publicly available if you choose to submit a comment. Not sure what that's about, but it sounds like the government. Why not create a deterrent for people who are undoubtedly only visiting the awfully outdated and slow FCC website in order to voice complaints and criticisms. That might soften the blow, huh? I mean, honestly, visit the FCC website and tell me with a straight face that these people should have anything to do with internet regulations. I could use a good chuckle.
Net neutrality needs to be preserved. Charging online businesses a premium for faster, more reliable internet is unethical. It prevents independents and start-ups from staying competitive with massive companies and prevents the positive aspects of capitalism from working properly. The decision to place Thomas Wheeler as FCC chairman is asinine and that terrible mistake should be undone as quickly as possible. I would be stunned to live in a capitalist nation where the government still made decisions based on the needs and desires of it's people and not on it's own desire to generate an extra buck. That so many Americans have to constantly take action against choices like these says a lot about the kind of people making decisions for our nation.
