Can Today’s Senate Vote on Net Neutrality, if Successful, Rescue Free Speech?

Sadly, even if the vote were to succeed, it may not go anywhere. This article I came across explains why. I am not familiar with the publication it appeared in, but the argumentation appears sound and leads to the conclusion that we must focus our fight less on particular battle fronts and more on the big picture war against systemic corruption. We must hurry to create a true democracy that’s rooted in a fair economy freed from the curse of Big Money. We may lose net neutrality pretty soon. So we better hurry with the fundamental political revolution we desperately need to pull off — best getting it done while we can still communicate effectively.

Ending Note: It takes me at least 100 hours a month of “spare time” to research and write news updates and analyses and work on my book. Please widely share links to these articles, so this work is not for naught. You can also help in other ways (including much needed financial support). Only together can we change this messed-up world. Let’s do it! 🙂

  1. It did pass the Senate, and now it’s time to put the pressure on the House members to pass it. I think after the recent primaries, a lot more Republicans will break ranks because they figure supporting net neutrality will keep them in their seats (and keep the gravy train of corporate cash coming their way). It’s time for We the People to put the paid-off politicos n the thumb screws and make them wince until they capitulate.

  2. You may be right, Cindy. This is one cheap bone they may throw us while they keep raiding the public coffers and rigging the system ever further. If this happens, we better take advantage of the little reprieve we get from not being silenced within as little as a few months.
