Dear Fight for the Future member,
I've got to be honest with you. I really didn't think we would make it this far.
When we started this fight for net neutrality, it seemed like the odds were stacked impossibly against us. We're up against some of the most powerful and politically well-connected companies in the world. Companies that are so close to the government, sometimes it's hard to tell the two apart.
But against all odds, we are winning. Everything we are hearing says the FCC is finally caving to the public pressure and writing a real net neutrality rule. Please help us finish the fight: click here to chip in whatever you can afford today.

During this time, when an increasing number of formerly isolated and closed-off nations in the world are relaxing their grip around the minds and mouths of their populace in an effort to release that Potential Energy buzzing within it, …

Internet Neutrality and the Wider Picture of Treasonous Political Agendas

At the risk of adding my user name, or even my real name, to a list of "known unknowns" in the ever-expanding and stealthy netherworld of surveillance bureaus, I'm resolute to voice my opinion and hopefully to contribute some useful insight and worthy commentary on current events and significant social changes in the U.S. during this transformative period in our nation's history.  It is because of the technological advances that had been spearheaded and backed by our past governments that I'm able to exercise my democratic rights, not only to contact my congressman via various methods of communication, but also to add my two cents to the ongoing discourse taking place around the net neutrality issue in our nation's capital and among the citizenry who are most affected by the law-makers' decision on this particular issue; namely, the internet users, bloggers, entrepreneurs--current and future--of an entirely new breed of companies that, while building upon…
