TELL FCC WHY NET NEUTRALITY IS IMPORTANT

My comment:

Ending Net Neutrality will open the floodgates of criminal collusion as Telecoms target their rivals: be they business competitors, political ideas or other knowledge which they deem not in their interest. This assault on freedom will usher in an age of secret collusion and destroy the ability to check information for its veracity, its truthfulness.

It will empower telecoms into becoming the arbiters of what can and cannot be said. This issue was successfully addressed originally when telephone companies could not police the content of calls. That is the model to use with Internet, less intrusion, less manipulation by private interests. The freedom of personal communications needs to be protected, not eroded and manipulated behind closed doors.

That’s un-American.

PS.

Unfortunately, FreePress.net sent me the notice at 10:20am PACIFIC TIME! It’s already too late.

Pentagon Funds New Data-Mining Tools to Track and Kill Activists

 

Last year, government documents revealed that Department of Homeland Security had customized its Predator B drones, built originally for foreign military operations, for domestic surveillance tasks and to “respond to emergency missions across the country,” including “identifying civilians carrying guns and tracking their cell phones.”

These drones are now being used on U.S. soil by the FBI, Secret Service, Texas Rangers and some local police forces. The DHS had also proposed to arm its domestic fleet of border patrol drones with “non-lethal weapons designed to immobilize TOIs [targets of interest]” – an option also being pursued by local police agencies that want to arm drones with rubber bullets, tear gas and other riot control weapons.
