Net Neutrality – crash course

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

Everyone at this point has heard about ‘Net Neutrality to death, but in this influx of daily horrible news about our government, we have to keep up with the flood or the losses will continue to build, and this is one of them.

The first is from Ajit Pai, the FCC chairman.  As he makes his case as to why he’s dismantling ‘Net Neutrality, he doesn’t exactly talk to his audience like they could be a professor, engineer, systems administrator or researcher.  

Actually there’s no information presented, it’s more “don’t you worry about it”.

The second video is from the MIT media lab, and the presenter speaks to his audience like they’re a child on a field trip to MIT.

One of them is incredibly demeaning, the other is bright, informative and professional, both are giving commentary of how they feel about their audience.  It’s not hard to tell which presenter feels his audience is foolish, short sighted and feeble minded, and which presenter resonates with his audience and is confident that his presentation on the subject will bring about a result that’s positive for the nation.  Our country’s FCC chairman is addressing the viewer in a way that is offensive to children on a field trip.

Which of these men would you rather have at the reigns of the Federal Communications Commission?  Which of these presenters do you believe is being truthful, and which of them are hiding something?

Because of the president and those who put him in power, the answer is : our governing officials don’t care what you think, and you should be furious about that.
