Bye Bye Net Neutrality?
Light Reading
Say goodbye to network neutrality… at least for now. That's my take after watching and evaluating the arguments over the issue at the D.C. Circuit Court recently.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

Drop Verizon and don't give them a chance to be the troll charging you twice or even more to pass on an Internet bridge we all paid to build to reach the links we choose to use.  If they want extra pay to provide good, open, affordable access to the internet communication system or cell service  then forget them...

 

How about getting double charged for your use of the internet so Verizon can line their pockets and give their richest costumers the first class seats on the fast line lanes while they put everyone else cramped up in their economy slow internet lane?

 

If they don't think they think they Verizon is not a common carrier of communications these days then what is everyone paying Verizon so much for?

 

Second class treatment is what Verizon wants to be allowed to offer their costumers and if they do they better drop their price by 75% for the privilege of letting them treat everyone else like they are only worth a lesser, lousy service...as a punishment for costumer not willing to be fleeced by Verizon or those who are not able to afford Verizon billing to access the web, then billing people for the links they want to get to or to reach the people they what to reach out to. Why not just allow Verizon a business permit to just service rich people who can afford the Verizon cherry picked style of Internet communication service? 

 

If the Internet wasn't highly important all these companies and governments would not be drolling and bitting at the bit to get control over it and sap the wealth out of everyone if they succeed in gaining control. . The fight for the open Web and citizen control over what we do with our great new communication system is a non-stop battle between citizenss and those who want to own the system and control it.

 

If enough of us push this back we will hold our internet again and get ready to go up against the next attempt to take it over. Corproations and governments will be back for another and another try to take it over for their own. The citizens will again stand up against this power grab and together we can continue to push back the corporate efforts to seize the power of the Web for their own private, selfish interest. So please get in the loop and stay informed about power plays for the Web and  be ready to join the citizen's side in this cyber war.

Yahoo's Fight for its Users in Secret Court Earns the Company Special Recognition in Who Has Your Back Survey

Each year, EFF’s Who Has Your Back campaign assesses the policies and practices of major Internet companies as a way to encourage and incentivize those companies to take a stand for their users in the face of government demands for data.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

I think all companies should be fighting for the interest of the customers that trusted them with their business and more should be fighting or acting on behalf of their customers.

 

 I also think citizens should be standing stronger for their own interest. We need to have some huge, specific, general strikes to stand our own ground without having to harm anyone with guns.

 

These are the three things I would recommend to stand for first.

 

1.  Communication:

The open internet needs to be made the LAW with net neutrality being the formal LAW that says no WEB site access can be blocked, slowed, or interrupted without a warrant and just cause in each case. That would include be to tell both the governments and the corporations of all types hands off without just cause. A clear message that governments and businesses are allowed to operate only to serve the interest of the citizens and not the other way around. http://www.scoop.it/t/it-s-our-web-lets-keep-it-neutral-and-open  

 

2.  Privacy:

We need to upgrade the 4th amendment with a Law covering all media and mass communication systems...no spying, search or seizure without a warrant for each case and notification of this event if prosecution cannot be made so that breached PW and other security may be readjusted. Industries too risky (power/water and the pentagon) to run on the WEB should have closed systems so security can be controlled without compromising all citizens’ security.

 

3.Economic power:

We need to rally for the Anti-Corruption Act and criminalize the corruption of money in our policies at both the State and National levels. http://anticorruptionact.org  We need to meet at town halls or kitchen tables to OCCUPY our on government more effectively and select and monitor our representatives and regulators more carefully. Geography, National and World History, Philosophy, World Religions, Cultures and World International Economies need to be studied starting with the young as multimedia stories and games and continuing as life long learning. Current events need to be a community concern. Creative Visionary educational activities should also be maintained to generate creative thinking for problems and ideas we have never seen. Local Non-profit radio and papers should operate in 50-mile area for information sharing and they should include all opinions. (Knowledge is a communication and education battle as well as economic) Making wise local, national, and international choices requires educated, informed, engaged, well-connected communities.
