Net Neutrality in Danger

Updated on 22 May, 2017

As political centrists -- swing voters who decide elections -- our non-partisan views sometimes find us siding with Republicans, sometimes with Democrats, sometimes with Independents, and sometimes with none of these.

For example, we find the controversy over Trump and the Russians to be an unnecessary, deplorable media-created tempest in a teapot about nothing of consequence, as Trump rightly says, a politically-motivated witch hunt.

By contrast, however, we are very much on the other side of the political fence as concerns the Trump-administration's apparent decision -- a stupid one in our view -- to try to topple Net Neutrality.

Greedy institutions and people are trying to torpedo the existing long-standing standard of Net Neutrality -- which benefits us all -- and instead to bring to the World Wide Web the same flawed system of discriminatory privilege that marks the cable television industry.
