16. Let's hope we get to keep it!

Ajit Pai, current head of the FCC, wishes to destroy 'net neutrality', essentially turning the internet into a 'walled garden' controlled by rich corporations and individuals. Unfortunately he probably will. BTW this will allow ISPs to 'manage' connections and routing. The point being that anything you send out is 'information' not 'communication'. That means that its not treated like a telephone. There will be no expectation of privacy or equality of access on the internet anymore.
