In 2014 John Oliver made a video about Net Neutrality and 13 million people LOLd. So made Part II and Part III!

 

What happens after the death of the internet? The Washington Post broke it down.

 

And Vox did one of their cool, long explainer things on what Net Neutrality means, and why it’s so important.

 

The Nation wrote a good piece where someone called Pai’s new rules “naked corporatism” and “Washington at its worst,”

 

This FCC commissioner is begging us to stop her from killing The Internet.

 

What else happened? Well, since you asked, bots impersonating over 100,000 American citizens posted fake anti-Net Neutrality comments during the FCC’s public comment process.

 

Also, eliminating Net Neutrality would really suck for small businesses.


So is there any good news? Slate breaks down how we can still save The Internet. In short, we need to 1) make noise and 2) call Congress.
