What Is Net Neutrality and Why Is It Important?

Net neutrality is a notion that argues that all data on the internet should be treated similarly by entities such as Internet service providers. It advocates for free and open internet, in which users have unrestricted access to material as long as it does not break any laws.

t’s important because it serves as a “nice” sounding cover story for rationalising allowing our government to take over and control the internet.

The internet has done well without government control, and that needs to be preserved. But the busybodies and power-mongers cannot stand the idea of anything significant not being under their control, so they have to come up with a set of lies to get people to support them taking control of whatever it is.

For the internet, that cover story full of lies is “net neutrality”.
