The Oatmeal responds to Sen. Ted Cruz's ridiculous opinion on Net Neutrality

Post by Ben Reilly on Tue Nov 11, 2014 7:31 pm


"Net Neutrality" is Obamacare for the Internet; the Internet should not operate at the speed of government.

If data is not treated neutrally the internet is broken.

really ISP's should not exist their function should be cover by the various national postal service laws most western nations have already (Australia's actually does but the ignore it, there is line about future communication tech as it still had telegraph as main electronic communication but telephones were starting up). Email is Mail thus constitutional responsibility to provide it to citizens.

the scariest thing is that so many 'leaders' have no fucking idea about how the stuff that make most of the modern world function actually works and they want to go tinkering with it to try and make a few extra bucks.

honestly it would probably cost the world economy Trillions if the USA didn't enforce net neutrality. you could wipe 90% of the value off Google, Face-book, Amazon and every other web based corporation. they would need to pay 'protection money' to ISP's in order to be visible to consumers.
'no net neutrality' is like letting a Mafia thug tell as retailer to pay them or they will stand at the entrance of a store and break the legs of any customer that tries to do business with them.
Let alone the death of all small business that run on the internet. it is not like the 'protection money' that the ISP are asking for will be affordable to average small business
