I will not entrust my rights to profit-driven corporations and neither should you. Image description: "To everyone defending the FCC's decision to end net neutrality, I want you to understand something.
I want to believe you. I want to believe this decision was made with the people in mind. I want to believe the internet will continue to be open and free. I really want to believe that corporations like Verizon won't censor content and screw people over.
But I've looked at the evidence. I've examined the internet prior to net neutrality, I've dug into the interests of the groups favoring its repeal, and I can tell you, your views have absolutely no logical basis. Let's look at this point-by-point: -One argument is that more profits for internet providers means better broadband; that is false. The U.S. has some of the worst broadband of any industrialized country despite those companies making huge profits.
-You say there will be no censorship. That is false. These companies censored unions, activists and dissenters prior to these laws being passed, and they'll resume once it's legal. -You say they won't charge for using services. That is false. Countries without any net neutrality laws have their internet split into packages and people do pay more for individual services.
-You say the internet isn't necessary anyway. I say that statement is profoundly ignorant and classist, among other things. I say that statement puts people at risk. I say you don't care about people enough to recognize the internet as a source of support for marginalized people.
So yeah, I hope you're right. But at this point, I'm not banking on it. Neither should you." #savenetneutrality #netneutrality #battleforthenet #savetheinternet #feminism #feminist #equality #oppression #america #usa #communism #socialism #anarchy #republican #democrat #trump #intersectionalfeminism #freedom #ajitpai #fcc
