    Nice diary, and I agree with your points.

    But when you say absolutes like this: "The loss of net neutrality, if not reversed, will kill our democracy" I shake my head.  If ONE thing like NN can kill democracy, then it was never meant to live in the first place.

    Minority rights should never be subject to majority vote.

      a lot harder - remember, the end of net neutrality would give corporations even more control over the media than they already have.

      (Is it time for the pitchforks and torches yet?)

    •  You might think so but what is your plan for (0+ / 0-)

      when DKos and similar sites are either blocked or slowed down to 1 byte per second and you can't even organize by phone or text messaging because those are also blocked (or it takes 10 minutes for each call to go through and a week for each text message if you try to use those things for organizing or other political activity).

      You have watched Faux News, now lose 2d10 SAN.

        I find that just as unlikely as the madmen at at the Cliven bundy ranch and their fear of drone strikes.  

        Minority rights should never be subject to majority vote.
