TV filled with commercials is failing. Government propaganda is failing. The people are winning. The truth is winning. As a reaction, there will be a show down.

Update: Bell Canada and TELUS (formerly owned by Verizon) employees officially confirm that by 2012 ISP’s all over the globe will reduce Internet access to a TV-like subscription model, only offering access to a small standard amount of commercial sites and require extra fees for every other site you visit. These ‘other’ sites would then lose all their exposure and eventually shut down, resulting in what could be seen as the end of the Internet. -ipower

The Internet Freedom and Nondiscrimination Act of 2006 would have made it a violation of the Clayton Antitrust Act for broadband providers to discriminate against any web traffic, refuse to connect to other providers, or block or impair specific (legal) content. It would also have prohibited the use of admission control to determine network traffic priority. The legislation was approved 20-13 by the House Judiciary committee on May 25, 2006, but was never taken up on the House floor and therefore failed to become law. A bill called the Communications Opportunity, Promotion and Enhancement Act of 2006 was introduced in the US House of Representatives, referencing the principles enunciated by the FCC and authorizing fines up to $750,000 for infractions. It was passed 321-101 by the full House of Representatives on June 8, 2006 but failed to become law when its companion measure was filibustered in the Senate.

On February 25, 2008, Chairman of the Federal Communications Commission Kevin Martin said that he is “ready, willing and able,” to prevent broadband internet service providers from irrationally interfering with their subscribers’ internet access.[18]

On March 27, 2008, Comcast and BitTorrent reached an agreement to work together on network traffic.[19] Comcast will adopt a protocol-neutral stance “as soon as the end of [2008]”, and explore ways to “more effectively manage traffic on its network at peak times.” – wiki

    “TV filled with commercials is failing. Government propaganda is failing. The people are winning.” Well, said!!!!!

    And repeating again and again:

    “The people are winning”!!!!!

    And, they will win. No more extreme fascist notions about anything, about race, religion etc., etc.

    In a real democracy there is debate and discussion and sometimes argument, but that’s the way should always be. World is not either/or, there are always shades of gray.

    The PEOPLE, black, brown, red or white, are first and last. NOT CORPORATE INTERESTS, MONEY and PROFITS, but people.

    Keep the internet free and open to all, that includes the poorest among us.

    I like subscription model for the Internet, no more garbage personal webpages that claim having the big new of the year, no more sites with illegal content can be access so easily again(how to make a bomb and others), of course if you pay extra you can access that kind of site again

    Cesar, you know that Osama Bin Laden is a multi-millionaire, right? 😉 Weeding by wealth won’t work.

    Security analyst Arnaud de Borchgrave, who has met bin Laden, estimates that he is worth more than US$200 million. He is said to also have the ability to tap the fortunes of other wealthy sympathizers. – e

    You hit a critical question, however: Are we humans so crude a species that we will self destruct and force our own extinction if given the chance? I think so. This is why I stopped trying to reveal certain “alien” technology several years ago. It is obvious that, as a species, our morality has not evolved as fast as our technology. We hate, we lie, we cheat, we steal, we kill. Not everyone, not all the time, there is much love, beauty, truth, and hope… but if you read or watch the news, you can’t deny that the dark side still exists. Some technology we have now is more powerful than anything ever discovered … but it should remain unknown for the benefit of the planet.

    This is something that Gary McKinnon did not understand. He wanted everyone in the world to benefit from the “Free energy” technology the US shadow government has… so he went on a hacking expedition. He thought about saving people from starvation, the end of wars over oil and so on, but he did not understand history or human nature. If some new power source, call it ZPE for the sake of argument, was revealed, the first thing that would happen is that the governments of the world would work feverishly to weaponize it and then, they would use it to establish a dominance hierarchy. In the process, the planet would be ripped in half by explosions on a scale that would dwarf our biggest H-bombs.

    Anyway, back down to Earth, I am strongly opposed to the subscription model. I love all the little personal web sites, the freedom of expression, the level playing field. Power to the people! ( … but not so much power that they fry themselves. )

    Am I the only one who sees the flaw in this obviously BS theory and that is competition between ISP’s and as well as the fact that the internet is ALREADY A SUBSCRIPTION BASED MODEL YOU PAY EACH MONTH TO GET ACCESS TO IT DUH! The fact is if all ISP’s switch to this model than another one will come along and offer a model that we use now than everyone will switch over to that ISP and the rest will follow suite or go out of business.

    You guys are morons this theory makes no sense first who benefits from it so much that they would go through with such blatant stripping away of something consumers like why would they want to risk losing their market share to another company
