Oh, wow. Net neutrality is one of the last bastions of free speech. I just watched a piece about how the CDC is not allowed to use certain words or phrases in their communications, like fetus, transgender, diversity, evidence-based, and science-based. What is this thought-policing? We are entitled to free speech by our Constitution, yet our own government is restricting the speech of its agencies? Oh, h#&& to the no!
If government health agencies (and the EPA) are restricted in what they can say amongst themselves, imagine the consequences if they speak their minds in public. This uber-conservative suppression of free speech is not just wrong--it's dangerous. It hinders science and rational responses to scientific challenges. It will set health care back in ways I can't foresee, but I know that it is so.
The Internet is international communication, not just among diplomats but among civilians, ordinary people. It doesn't get any more democratic than that. Losing the freedom to communicate with other people in the world without restraint violates everything this nation stands for. I don't care if it's violent or pornographic. and I say that as a Christian and a feminist. It is what it is. It's people, it's reality, it's truth. You can't just stick your head in the sand and pretend it doesn't exist. To muzzle the Internet would be a heinous crime. Net neutrality is essential to the preservation of truth and free speech.
We must not be afraid to fight for our freedoms. Not with arms, but with resolve and the powers given to us by our founding fathers. End of rant.
