    Well, not to alarm anyone, but the internet as we know it could be screwed over for good if Congress passes an act that will basically kill net neutrality.

    What the hell is net neutrality anyway?
    Welp, net neutrality pretty much prevents ISPs (Internet Service Providers) to censor, throttle, or control what we see on the internet. Think of it as being run by a tyrannical (abusive) government that is completely unfair, but online instead of in the real world. Net neutrality also prevents "slow lanes" and "fast lanes" which people would have to buy fast lanes to gain higher speeds while accessing websites, while others would be stuck in "slow lanes"

    Side One: Team Internet
    This side is the good guys, we support net neutrality and we speak for freedom of speech on the internet. People on Team Internet range from YouTubers, gamers, politicians, comedians, and everyday internet users that just want to browse the web freely. These people support net neutrality, because without it, their careers, or even possibly their entire lives could be destroyed if net neutrality gets smashed.

    Side Two: Team Cable

    These are the ISPs that want to control our lives on the internet, aka the bad guys. They range from AT&T, Verizon, and Comcast. They want Congress and the FCC (Federal Communications Commissions) to smash net neutrality. Why do they want this? So they can make us pay millions to get out of the "slow lane" and restrict our viewing habits on the internet. They're trying to take over the internet, and by doing so they will crush small startups that can't afford to pay the bills.

    How Can YOU Prevent This?
    Well, you can go to the site linked below to call Congress, or even send a message to them on why net neutrality should be kept. They will be voting on this act on the 14 of December, roughly 7 days from now. You can do everything from participating in a local protest, call Congress, or even write them an email/letter. If you are loving of a free and unrestricted internet, I highly encourage you to do everything in your power to stop and prevent all of this crap from happening. @GoobNitro @P2 @Jacob , if you guys would like there is a GitHub that will bring you to some code that will make a pop up appear that will tell you to call and stop net neutrality from being destroyed.

    Thank you all for reading and have a great day/night/afternoon :)

    what sucks is that I have a feeling that they will side with the ISP's because I'm sure they have bribed some of, if not most of, the Congress members. While it may be illegal, I think everyone can agree that regardless of what party the Congress consists of at any given moment, it is, and has been, on the decline for a while now.

    The last piece of major legislation that was actually passed was Obama's economy tax injection bill thingy that gave the economy a few billion or trillion dollars (forgot the name), and that happened years ago.

    Also, we must remember that should it get passed it isn't permanent. It can always be repealed later on. But how long it might take to possibly be repealed is anyone's guess at this point.

    It's too early for politics so I'll leave it at that.

    Lmao what, I know you don't mean it but it sounds like you're saying you lived during the 1800s.

    There's pretty much nothing we can do at this point, they're going to vote to end it. Enjoy it while it lasts my man

    Meant with what happened in the government at the time, like how businesses basically controlled the government. Terribly worded from my part.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but if this happens, can't we just use a VPN?

    Exactly, who wouldn't love being put into a labor camp then being put into court with no lawyer and then getting the death penalty just for accessing their internet?!

    Seems better imo

    I'd be funny if riots started if the act/bill is passed.
