Internet has been the most democratic tool in the last two decades. Trough the Arab Spring, anti-Putin blogs, Erdogan’s Turkey, my home country Bulgaria: people have had a viable voice to speak, hear and share, despite government-own, Goebbels-like mass media, who thus looses the opportunity to control public opinion. .
That era is only logical to wind down. In my home country, the Murdock-like media owner, as well as ruling-parties’ apparatchiks pay “trolls” to go and muddle the blog sections under online articles and the social media field.
In the U.S., the same process takes different “democratic” way: the big companies are lobbying and buying their way of silencing the Internet right of people to be able to voice, speak and share their opinion.

    The End of Free Internet
    the Federal Communications Commission voted 3-2 to open for public debate regarding new rules meant to guarantee a free and open Internet. The recent net neutrality debate is a result of the FCC proposal permitting Internet service providers to set up “fast lanes” for Web sites to pay for quicker access to content.

    sponsored data gives an advantage to rich companies that can afford to pay AT&T for such a plan and reduces the chances of smaller competitors creating innovative new services. It may be good for the consumer in the short term, but it could be a major hurtle to competition down the road, especially as the majority of computing shifts to mobile devices.
