General Purpose: To persuade my audience. Specific Purpose: To persuade my audience to support and uphold net neutrality and share with them what they can do. INTRODUCTION I. Net Neutrality. The Open Internet Project defines net neutrality as “the idea that your cellular, cable, or phone internet connection should treat all websites and services the same”.
These three important rules work together to prevent information from being withheld from consumers and to keep the internet equal for all of its users. Mr. Wheeler, the former chairman of the FCC, made it so the internet service providers are regulated like utilities (Messina). However, large companies and ISPs, Internet Service Providers, have debated
Netflix wants the FCC to realize what taking an open internet away can do. This affects us because if the open internet is taking away from us lots of jobs will be gone because of it Vimeo Vimeo looks forward to challenging this misguided decision in court. Not everyone is behind the net neutrality rules. Internet service providers like AT&T, Verizon and Comcast have a lot to gain from loosened regulations. Vimeo supports the open internet and they want the FCC to understand the outcome of what can happen if they take it away.
While most of the describe could be a worst-case scenario, it is still very possible. Internet service providers are here to make money and without regulation they can do as they please. Net neutrality is a key construct in the age of the internet, and without it we are purposely restricting the potential of our
By doing this, Wikipedia improved the integrity of its website, since politicians were unable to manipulate pages for their own interest. However, by doing this, it also displayed mistrust of the government, which could cause potential problems for the website’s future. In the end, Wikipedia made the right choice in banning the IP, and the government disciplined the individuals responsible for the edits. The fact that Wikipedia can ban users from editing posts is a conflict mediator. However, the fact that Wikipedia did not hesitate to ban the United States Government from editing posts shows that Wikipedia values integrity when making important decisions.
citizens the right to free speech on the internet, as equally as it is granted offline. The internet has become the major conduit of ideas and we must protect its freedoms as readily as we did for the pamphlets and newspapers of the past. There is a vast amount of false and disagreeable speech online, as there always has been elsewhere, but the people of this country will support the ideas that withstand the test of time and criticism, while the rest are forgotten. The United States has always trusted in the laissez-faire policy, in both economics and public discourse, and the political fragmentation of today should only be further evidence that we need freedom of speech on the internet, without government interference, to share and better our ideas and become again one nation,
Some people as myself don’t let the internet control our future, we know the right from wrong and know when to put an end to the nonsense of what a technocrat tries to give us. We can put an end by doing our research and decide if what we are reading or using is the real deal. There are many ways on how we can take control of our future, such as putting any technology away will give us the upper hand on coming close to any technocrat trying to take over our future. Although most of us will not just put our technology away, we should be mindful on what we see or read on the internet. Just by reading “I Wear the Black Hat” by Chuck Klosterman, it can help everyone understand what a technocrat is and how they are villains.
He believes that government regulation is necessary until we are able to find solutions to ensure that the internet is actually doing more good than harm. With these statements, one may believe that the regulation of social media is the best way to save humanity from the monster but other scholars suggest differently. Social media is an interesting source of technology because it gives the users an opportunity to influence its use and purpose. This revelation leads some scholars and scientists to argue that it is society that is becoming Frankenstein’s monster which is why Shelly’s novel is so prevalent in our society. Raquel Bellefleur argues that social media is not Frankenstein’s monster rather it is society.
Prabhakar Pillai, author or “Pros and Cons of Censorship”, states “It [censorship] prevents the public display of disrespect to any particular individual or community.” Racism, sexism, and other forms of hates towards a group of people wouldn’t be all over the internet. Cyberbullying could be diminished. Geoff Yang then goes on to say, “We need censorship to keep the dimly lit corners of cyberspace safe.” Nowadays, simply voicing your opinion, or even not owning up to society’s idea of “perfect”, can result in cyberbullying. Censorship could even save lives. Prabhakar Pillai, author of “Pros and Cons of Censorship”, says “Scenes of people consuming alcohol or smoking influence people to copy them.” Seeing others suffer from substance abuse may peak others’ curiosity, which could lead them down the same path.
It dont mean you should stop using it. The web can be at good thing if you just use it for the right reasons. But the one thing i´m asking you to do, is to be careful and take care of each other on the internet. But also, have fun. (Modern digital technology is a blessing and the only way forward) Task
In other words, we can have free communication. For normal web users, the entire source of the internet is freely available. Losing the freedom of internet access could result in restricted access to websites; fewer download rights and so on. The topic of net neutrality has become controversial because several companies are trying to take away the freedom of internet access. There are people who think net neutrality is ethical; there are several reasons for it.
Company’s websites will ever be slowed down if they are not able to pay a fee. The internet is an everyday useful and should be freely offered to the public. With the support of the president and the people net neutrality can protect the internet from internet service providers making it fast, fair, and equal to
