It appears that now apparently, in consideration to this recent Supreme Court motion and companies like Comcast and members of the U.N trying to impose certain policies concerning internet use and the net, and like health care, your right and capacity to distribute and access a public forum and information is corroding while giving way to the privileged few.
Without a mechanism to level the playing filed for all people, our democracy may be a great risk.
