It seems that each passing day is one where I read a blog, or an article about how our human rights are being taken away from us. Some of these arguments really do cause me to take pause, whether it be the legalized robbery of a failing airline industry, the rising prices of video games and movies, or the more recent movement to exploit loopholes in the FCC jurisdiction.
The exploitations that I am referring to are the FCC and their efforts to continue the fight for net neutrality. They have already lost a pinnacle battle in the courts and seem to be losing ground with every trial. It’s only a matter of time before the power is shifted from the people and into the hands of major corporations. If the battle for net neutrality is lost forever, we can all expect to see the same form of robbery that we complain about every time we step foot into an airport. The nickel and dime charges, the lack of support and quality regulations, and the arbitrary fees for the smallest of details like choosing an aisle seat.
