Net Neutrality

You know that when the Gun Owners of America organisation, the American Civil Liberties Union, the Parents Television Council and the National Coalition against censorship agree with each other, they must be on to something.

These groups and hundreds of others have added their voice to fight against the corporate takeover of the net. American telecommunications companies are threatening the internet as we know it and everyone from Tim Berners Lee and Eric Schmidt (Google's CEO) are telling people to do something about it.

Corporate giants in America are have won a key vote that is the first step to allowing them to charge a premium for internet speed, creating a two tier internet. They want to make sure that we use their services, keeping a monopoly and a stranglehold on the internet, forcing out all the creativity and individuality that we take for granted.

I really hope somebody stops these greedy bastards and keeps the internet from becoming a channelled, monotonous corporate-controlled medium.

    I say all Americans should vote for the the National Libertarian Party in America! Kurt Russel is a member, it is the only serious 3rd party in America.

    The Libertarian Party have a lot of good stuff in their platform, in some ways I perhaps wish we had an equivalent here. But in a two party system supporting the libertarian factions within the Republican party makes a lot more sense. (And in Britian supporting the libertarian wing of the Conservative Party).

    They're free market fundamentalists. That's right wing in my book.
