ya’ll remember the whole petition about net neutrality? yeah. it’s dead.
We’re really, really fucking this up.
But we can fix it, I swear. We just have to start telling each other the truth. Not the doublespeak bullshit of regulators and lobbyists, but the actual truth. Once we have the truth, we have the power — the power to demand better not only from our government, but from the companies that serve us as well. “This is a political fight,” says Craig Aaron, president of the advocacy group Free Press. “When the internet speaks with a unified voice politicians rip their hair out.”

please please PLEASE HELP RESTORE THE INTERNET!! THE WAR IS ONLY STARTING BUT WE CAN DO THIS. WE ARE THE INTERNET. WE CAN WIN!
Oh for God’s sakes, take the two seconds to sign the damn thing. Every single one of you knows that if you didn’t have the same level of Internet access that you have right now, you would lose your mind. Think about how much time you spend on here. Think about what you do. You’ve gotten used to being able to communicate with people who are hundreds or thousands of miles away from you. You’ve gotten used to doing your coursework online and e-mailing your professors and applying for jobs and ordering food and arguing about Sailor Moon. You need to try and save it.
so what can you do to help, basically? well for one you can sign this petition congresswoman chellie pingree put out, which would stop the comcast/time warner cable companies from merging and basically stopping services like netflix and hulu, blocking certain sights and having a very very BAD effect on the internet + net neutrality.
you can also help by signal boosting this post and signing it also.
a very very good thing you can do that would benefit would to either call or email this man right here shown in the picture above, telling him to restore net neutrality. telling him to help make the internet for the people, and not for the companies to control.
thank you for taking time out of your day to help this!!!
