The Battle for The internet begins….Again, Impeach Ajit Pai
Here we go…again. The fight for Net Neutrality begins anew and american citizens are now gonna have to fight hard for the freedoms that the internet provide. This same fight happened before when CISPA came about. The govt and telecom companies want the american public docile as ever feeding them information. Information on who they are, their habits, and it doesn't hurt that under the Prism project (Surveillance Program) companies like Microsoft, Yahoo and Facebook fed information to government agencies like the NSA to spy on all of you. That was a sore point with Microsoft’s xbox one and the kinect which doubled as a camera that was hardwired into their system at the time and you could not remove. And a troubling and unsettling detail when the system was being released the system had to be always online. A case many gamers like myself took to heart.
But let us move from old news to new and important topics at hand. The new head of the FCC under the Trump Administration Ajit Pai claims he’s a man of the people. Although there have been many rumblings about his particular background and his history which gives many people pause on how he acts to defend the american public on certain fights. Ajit Pai has been a lawyer for Verizon and been in the private sector and appointed to office under Barack Obama for the FCC. Ajit Pai has been working his way up from lawyer to the Head and now under Donald Trump’s presidency he is the head of the organization.
American Citizens, internet groups, and companies like google, Netflix and Youtube are worried about how Ajit Pai will vote. Destroying Net Neutrality is a dangerous thing and the freedom the internet gives the public will be neutered and destroyed from hereafter. Also what makes this more egregious is that powerful Telecom companies will have more power to charge you for faster access to the internet, throttle your download speeds, and possibly block out entire websites or cripple search engines. If Ajit Pai votes to give the Already powerful telecom’s (Verizon, At&t, Comcast,etc) more power over the internet; America is screwed for the foreseeable future…
President Obama did the right thing by declaring the internet a public resource. The regular working man does not have money to pay for cable and watch advertisements on a cable box to get billed every month in an already stifling economy. Cable companies are feeling the squeeze by losing tremendous advertising dollars and viewership because of the rise of the internet. The people are abandoning traditional cable services an opting in for services like Netflix, Amazon and Hulu en masse. The telecommunications companies see these outsiders as a serious threat.
And to stymy this threat they lobby Ajit Pai to rule in favor of them. Because heaven forbid if the world was on an even playing field and your business model is going out of style so what do you do if you can’t control the internet? They seek to cripple it. I personally cannot trust a man who dickride’s for cable companies in screwing over the everyday man.
The internet is a wonderful place, used for learning, sharing emails, video conferences, making business, it has opened up a new world in which the old guard cannot keep up. The people are creating new media and creating new opportunities and thus gaining power. The telecom companies are beyond greedy, and I bet you anything that Ajit Pai has taken money from them under the table since he used to be a corporate lawyer. FCC chairmen used to protect the people and go against the telecom’s escalating powers, not be in their back pocket…
But we live in America where greed, corruption, nepotism and racism is rewarded… Truth, Justice & freedom is not. Welcome to the real america…
