To be fair no one HERE is fooled by him…
…. the rest of the less internet inclined citizens however…
Ajit Pai is a twat, I get that. But condoning violence against him is going to get you banned as we don’t condone violence at all.
However, please use this opportunity to discuss what can be done to repel this. Words speak louder than action. The pen is mightier than the sword, and considerably easier to write with.
I listened to an interview on NPR’s Marketplace between Ajit Pai and Kai Ryssdal. Several times Ryssdal called him out for trying to pass of factual evidence, such as the popularity of net neutrality. Pai has a clever way in which he presents his side, and by clever, I mean he just lies.
[Here is the interview](https://www.marketplace.org/2018/06/07/world/Ajit-Pai-FCC-Net-Neutrality)
Goddamnit 1984 was a warning, not a goddamn instruction manual you absolute fuck.
This is just standard rent-seeking behavior by monopolies. ISPs bought Trump, and their reward is screwing their customers for more money.
The entire anti net neutrality argument is built on twisting the meanings of words.
This guy betrayed the American people.
Ajit Pai should rot in prison.
I like that people on the left now say that “open” is twisting the meaning of deregulating.
This isn’t just a person hack job. No way
Ajit Pai: “I’m for slave freedom, slave owners should be free to buy and sell slaves without governmental restrictions”
Dumb question but if Comcast or another isp decided they didn’t like a congressman or a governor could they block traffic to that site or slow it to a crawl? I guess what I am asking is could they steer away people from views negative to them by politicians legally? Politician A supports our agenda his website is perfectly fine. Politician B doesn’t and people wont have access to his website. My laymen understanding is they could.
Imagine if deregulation allowed highway owners to put a toll booth at the end of your driveway, but they only owned the cul-de-sac you lived on.
In related news, War is Peace, Freedom is Slavery, Ignorance is Strength.
Using Orwellian to describe the government stepping out of a regulation arena might be the single most ignorant usage of the term I’ve ever heard. Have none of you even READ Orwell?
Why the fuck shouldn’t I be fooled? Everybody involved with this sgit had a chance to stop it and didn’t so here we fucking are now.
#Ezio, we need you!
Fuck this guy.
The only thing open about it now is that major ISPs are open to screwing everyone else over while still collecting money for providing a service.
Can we just crowdfund a non-profit internet provider please.
Net Neutrality is a good idea but the government failing to enforce it via regulation is the exact opposite of “Orwellian.” Orwell did not envision a corporatocracy, he envisioned a totalitarian police state that would use regulations like net neutrality as a guise to control the flow of information.
How do we get this guy fired?
Open to investors
Can’t be fooled if you don’t listen to him at all 🙂
For him, “open Internet” means ISPs can do as they please.
>Under the new rules, internet providers will be allowed to do whatever they want with their network traffic, including blocking access to websites or charging websites a fee to reach users faster.
I understand that much of reddit hates this – largely because they’re told to – however, this is the crux of free enterprise: it’s not the government’s place to tell business how to run their operations (so long as they are operating lawfully).
>But the truth is that most Americans have no more than one, maybe two, choices when it comes to high-speed internet.
**THIS IS THE REAL PROBLEM**. And the previous NN regulations didn’t address it. It is also why the FTC – and not the FCC – should be the governing body here, they have power (along with the Treasury Dept) to step up measures that prevent monopolies – one of which we’ll probably see upheld in court today.
Finally an appropriate usage of the word “Orwellian”
Twisting words to mean the opposite of what people think of it is exactly what “Orwellian” means.
This might be a stupid question, but why does he care so much about repealing net neutrality?
Fucking idiot is always smiling….
Don’t worry, I automatically assume that he intends to do the exact opposite from what he says. That guy is a snake and not even hiding it anymore.
we need to get this to the general population, just spamming “net neutrality, now upvote me” especially on Reddit only closes it off. you have to get it to the masses. call Google, call Wikipedia, call Netflix and get the information out. people don’t know it threatens their way of life because they don’t fucking know.
