Saving the Internet

AT&T CEO Edward Whitacre is retiring soon and in a good bye address to his shareholders he declared:

There’s a problem. It’s called Net Neutrality. Well, frankly, we say to hell with that. We’re gonna put up some toll booths and start charging admission.

In Thinking Peace I make the case that the Internet is the best hope that we have as a planet for getting through the hard times ahead. Nothing matters more than keeping a free flow of information to all people, regardless of income. If the Whitacre’s of the world — the rich elites — get their way, information will be parcelled out on an ability-to-pay basis only.

We need to keep the Internet as free and open as possible. For more, go to Save the Internet.

One thought on “Saving the Internet”

  1. I would encourage you to support net neutrality if you want less competition and innovation. The internet has evolved into a wonderful information and entertainment hub because the government has played a minimal role. I work with the Hands Off the Internet Coalition and net neutrality’s government regulations would slow us to a steady crawl.

    With the way things have been going, I fear the government would misuse its power and begin to censor information from us. I trust the public much more than the government.
