Did you know India adopted #NetNeutrality, and it resulted in affordable Internet for poor people disappearing entirely?
Given how much damage the free and open Internet has done to the globalist establishment, it's no wonder they want to control it! forbes.com/sites/roslynla…
Knowledge is power.
Truth will set you free.
When the Internet is regulated and controlled, it creates barriers to entry for both consumers and providers, driving up costs and creating artificial scarcity.
It creates a scarcity of access to information and knowledge.
It should come as no surprise.
Silicon Valley is very happy creating and enabling their little socialist paradise, where the salaried elites make so much more money than the hourly grunts that the grunts are barely able to afford food and basic housing. usatoday.com/story/tech/201…
I'm told that Telecom Commission has accepted @TRAI 's recommendations on #NetNeutrality. Thank you TRAI& @rssharma3 for giving India the strongest Net Neutrality regulations in the world,covering both throttling of Internet access & prevention of discriminatory pricing
As per the @trai recommendations, ISP and Telco license conditions will be amended to enforce net neutrality principles. This means that if the telecom operators violate net neutrality, then they will be violating their license conditions, risking license cancellation
Brett Kavanaugh is one of the most cravenly partisan choices Trump could have made. He’s been called the “Forrest Gump of Republican politics,” as he seems to always show up in high-stakes, far-right political battles and conspiracy theories.
Kavanaugh doesn’t believe that a sitting president can be indicted, and believes presidents should have wide latitude to hire and fire special counsels. His nomination could shield Trump from facing accountability for his crimes and corruption.
This Fourth of July, we remember that the fight for liberty is far from over, and we're proud to be one of many organizations working to defend your rights. Here's what EFF is doing right now to defend freedom in the digital world. #4thOfJuly2018 /1
EFF helped win a major victory for digital rights when the Supreme Court agreed with—and cited—our brief in Carpenter v U.S., ruling that police should get a warrant before accessing cell phone location information /2 eff.org/deeplinks/2018…
EFF filed suit to stop FOSTA, the latest attempt at Internet censorship. While well intentioned, FOSTA is "written so poorly that it...criminalizes a substantial amount of protected speech &...hinders efforts to prosecute sex traffickers & aid victims." /3 eff.org/deeplinks/2018…
Next week President Trump will announce his second Supreme Court Justice pick.
Think this doesn’t affect your day-to-day life?
Here’s #WhatsAtStake and how our lives and our democracy could be negatively impacted for generations to come. #SCOTUS
1. Simply put, the Supreme Court interprets the Constitution, which involves every aspect of our lives—how we conduct ourselves in society and boundaries for individuals and the government. Trump will surely nominate someone who aligns with his alt-right ideology. #WhatsAtStake
2. Women’s health. It’s not just about reproductive freedom!! It’s access to birth control, equal insurance pricing, equal access to care, and protection in the workplace. #WhatsAtStake
Brett Kavanaugh is a judge on the Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit & on @realDonaldTrump’s pre-approved list, having passed the “litmus test” on overturning Roe v. Wade & striking down protections for ppl w/ pre-ex conditions in the ACA. Here’s #WhatsAtStake if he’s confirmed:
IMPORTANT: Everyone who cares about keeping the Internet free & open for all should be paying attention to California. #SB822, a bill to restore #NetNeutrality that’s facing a crucial committee hearing THIS WEDNESDAY
Trump & @AjitPaiFCC's resoundingly unpopular repeal of #NetNeutrality *just* went into effect. But dozens of states are fighting back. Substantively, the California bills are the best ones in the country, hands down. But they're in serious danger of getting gutted or voted down.
The bills already passed the California State Senate, despite fierce lobbying from monopoly ISPs like AT&T and Comcast. They're playing dirty, hiring up tons of contract lobbyists in Sacramento and flooding California lawmakers with misinfo-- lies. With lies.
Hi @AjitPaiFCC, remember me? I know you were all over TV yesterday celebrating a government handout to your former (current?) employer, Verizon. But frankly, you're full of $#!t and everyone knows it. Let's review the lies in your tweet below (THREAD)
You claim that repealing #NetNeutrality will "benefit consumers." Please explain how letting our cable and phone companies charge us new fees to access online content that we already get benefits us? Do you think people WANT to pay Comcast extra to visit Twitter? Ummm, no.
You called your order "Restoring Internet Freedom," but what you really meant was "Expanding AT&T and Verizon's freedom to screw you over more than they already do." Without #NetNeutrality, these companies will have complete, disturbing control over our online experience.
#NetNeutrality is NOT "dead." Yes, the FCC's disastrous and unpopular repeal officially went into effect today, but it's not going to last. We're fighting in the courts, in Congress, and at the state and local level. And we will win. #SaveNetNeutrality
Don't panic! The Internet isn’t going to come to a crashing halt. You won't be cut off from your friends. But starting today, your Internet provider is legally allowed to mess with you in a bunch of new ways, and it's only a matter of time before they do. #SaveNetNeutrality
We can #SaveTheInternet if the House will take a vote like the Senate. ISPs should not have the last word in what any American can see on the internet. Congress has a chance to put consumers and #SmallBiz first. #NetNeutrality
Seventy percent of small business owners feel that they are at a disadvantage compared to larger businesses due to their size and market power. The internet gives them capacity to try to equalize that disadvantage. Congress should support a free and open internet.
This is a debate of whether we are on the side of big utility-type companies or individuals and small businesses to guarantee them equal access to this critical service. Almost half of consumers have no choice of ISP. This is not about competition but preventing discrimination.
2) First off, note the fear. "The internet providers were overwhelmingly for the repeal of net neutrality" evoking a boogeyman, internet providers. The second tactic is trying to create a false consensus. Really? 83-87% of the American people?
3) A false consensus is another extremely dishonest tactic of the left to make people THINK that if you are against a liberal in a debate, that you stand against some overwhelming majority. Ignoring the fact that if this were true, that a repeal of net neutrality wouldn't happen
Ensuring that everyone has access to a level playing field online—which enables our small businesses to stay competitive and protects startups from being crushed by big corporations before they even get off the ground—is common sense
This fight isn’t over—we need every American, from consumers to small business owners, to continue speaking up and urging their Representatives and Donald Trump to support this resolution and end their misguided efforts to roll back #NetNeutrality protections
THREAD: At 3pm, the Senate will vote on a resolution to block the FCC’s #NetNeutrality repeal and restore basic protections that prevent companies like Comcast and AT&T from censoring online content, slowing down websites and apps, and charging expensive new fees.
Our work for Internet freedom will continue long after today, but the outcome of this vote will affect the battlefield that we are fighting on for years to come.
This is the most important thing for everyone to understand: we’re facing off with some of the most politically powerful corporations in the world. We’re fighting an uphill battle. But in the big picture, we are winning on #NetNeutrality. theverge.com/2017/12/11/167…
Republicans and Libertarians generally support deregulation, but what’s really at stake with #NetNeutrality is personal liberty – the ability for every American to freely choose how to inform themselves and how to engage in our democracy. nbcnews.com/think/opinion/…
Let's talk internet. You may have seen #NetNeutrality come up again as a hot topic. But why, you might ask, when sellout @FCC chair @AjitPaiFCC stomped all over it in spite of literally millions of people writing in to support net neutrality? Well, the fight's not quite over. 1/
All 49 Senate Dems plus GOP Senator Collins are forcing a vote to repeal @AjitPaiFCC's cow pie of a policy. 💩 The House is GOP-land, plus you-know-who's in the Oval Office, so the outcome's uncertain. Let me explain some serious hypocrisy re: NN. 2/
#NetNeutrality is a principle, not a concrete thing, like human rights. NN is the principle of an open internet, where service providers don't unfairly block or favor particular content, products, or sites. It levels the playing field for all internet users. Sounds good. 3/
