Don’t let porn take over the Internet: support Net Neutrality

What will happen to the Internet if Net Neutrality becomes a thing of the past?

Pornography will buy up the bandwidth.

It’s simple. The $12-billion-a-year industry on the Internet isn’t small business web pages or newspapers or fantasy baseball or political blogs. It’s porn.

If the telecommunications companies are allowed to sell their bandwidth to the highest bidder — forcing websites to pay in order to be carried by service providers — it will be the adult industry that will pony up the most money first and fastest.

In effect, rejecting Net Neutrality means ensuring that pornographic images, movies, and sounds will download at high speeds to homes all across the country at the expense of dictionaries, nonprofit organization home pages, church websites, independent realtors’ listings, and the mad ranting of the politically obsessed. Hustler instead of

That is, those that oppose Net Neutrality would sell off the web sites and pages representing the stuff that binds communities, the things that made the Internet wonderful — and useful. How many jobs will be lost? How many small businesses will fold? How many religious, environmental, and charity groups will see revenue dry up as a result of the lost visibility? How many people will leave the Internet to ensure the quick download of anal sex videos to teenage boys’ computers?

And that’s exactly why I dislike politicians like Montana Representative Denny Rehberg — an opponent of Net Neutrality — because, despite the rhetoric, he doesn’t give a fig about Montana communities. Not really. Otherwise he wouldn’t sell us out to the sex industry.
