Internet use and online communication is the scourge of autocratic governments that deny basic freedoms to their people. Internet information has proven to be a spark that creates the fire of freedom in the most oppressive corners of the world.
The Internet is one of the most positive forces for improving the human condition the world has ever known. It is the hub of innovation for the economy in America and the world. It’s a source of progress, democratic distribution of information, societal change, personal empowerment and technological innovation.
The FCC’s vote to control the Internet as a public utility takes power away from consumers, website developers and small business owners and puts it in the hands of Government. This will drive up costs, slow down innovation, and put unelected political appointees in charge of picking winners and losers.
And it will take away America’s moral authority to argue that autocratic regimes have no right to assert control of the Internet in their own countries.
A truly free and open Internet is dependent upon self-determination, not government bureaucracy.
I am signing my name here today in support of repealing the regulations that put the Internet under Federal Government control.
