As things are developing the Federal Communications Commission is trying very hard to make sure it will be your cable company or your phone company who will control what you can and cannot do on the Internet.

Up until now you could control what you do on the Internet yourself but the newly developing rules being pushed by the FCC are going to change all that and make users subject to whatever the providers want.

In other words, folks, your free and open use of the Internet is now in mortal jeopardy and in the end the only benefit to having the Internet will be reserved for the pleasure and profit of the cable companies, the phone companies and the wireless broadband companies.

You need to read about this but I think you also need to know that since individual Americans no longer have much say about what their elected officials do there isn’t much — if anything — that you are going to be able to do to stop this tyrannization of The World Wide Web and I think the best course for all of us is to just STFU about it, suck it up and do the best we can do with whatever is left to us.

An open letter to everyone who uses the internet

Read it and weep folks.
