I didn’t think I’d have to make a post about this, but at this point its beyond urgent that I at least say something. It is December. We have exactly 14 days left to fight off the FCC from taking away our internet. Time is going to fly by, please do not take a back seat thinking “oh, of course everyone’s gonna chime in, its not like I have to do anything” no. Do something! Speak up! Spread the news to everyone around you. Take action. Do not go silent
The internet was made for us. It wasn’t made for greedy assholes who just want more money. In these days, knowledge and entertainment are at the tips of our fingers. We have these miniature computers that has access to another world. A world people can be educated. A world that people can have fun. A world people can start their career or small business. A world where kids who are lonely can make friends. If we lose, this is all going to be taken away from us. Those phones? Well, now you no longer have the ability to message a friend that is miles away from you or check on your email for important business, well unless you pay extra money. I don’t think anyone wants to pay money just to check their email or send a friend a message
And speaking of friends. I know I have friends who go on the internet looking for friendship because they can’t find it in real life. In some cases, I’m the only person they got. I cannot imagine what would happen to some of them if we could no longer talk. That’s terrifying. I’m absolutely scared on what will happen if contact was lost. I might not just lose them from lack of internet, but I might lose them permanently. I really don’t want to think about that, but it could very well be the case if we lose Net Neutrality. And I know there are many other people out there that could have the same reaction
I, myself, would not take this loss very well either. I have very little friends in real life and they’re all often busy with their work. Most of my close friends are internet friends. I don’t know how I’d handle the loss of them. Some of the them are the only things holding me together now. And its not just that, but loads of my entertainment comes from the internet! For all my life I wanted to so badly watch many cartoons (and some anime) and I’ve finally gotten the chance to! I’ve never felt so passionate about anything until now and if we lose, all of that would be taken away from me. I’d be crushed. I’ve already been panicking over this, if its all gone, I have no idea what I would do
And think about yourselves to. How would this affect you personally? I can imagine everyone, or anyone really, reading this would take a big personal loss to this. No one but those greedy assholes will be taking this lightly. If you are not willing to fight for anyone else, fight for yourself. The internet has provided something that nothing else could. We cannot afford to lose our freedom
I am not good with providing with the links and info to take the needed actions to fight against this cause, but I can recommend you guys to other posts that do: (x) (x) (x) (x) (x) (x) Those are all posts I highly urge you guys to read and reblog. I’ll try to add more whenever I find other good posts with contact info. But please, do not sit idle, do something!! This isn’t like the last time we fought bullshit like this off, they’re very willing to ignore our pleas. We must fight back even harder!
