Yeah I honestly don't understand when I see other reps/cons defend this travesty. The common narrative for that argument is that the internet existed pre NN, and therefore will perfectly return to the old status quo in which the internet previously existed.

The fallacy in that argument is that the level of technology that exists now particularly in the data mining side of this equation. Blockchain's compared to what existed in 2015 is like the difference from a Nokia Brick to an iPhone X.

Like cool, you blindly agree with anything your side tells you based on our weird tribalised society. Don't get mad when Comcast is selling your highly sophisticated personal data to third party advertisers.

You mean you don't see why anyone on your side is against NN or supports ending NN. Still, keep up the good fight.

You sound like a dumbass bringing blockchain into a Net Neutrality discussion, but other than that bravo for thinking rationally.

Well, considering that a massive amount of the pro-NN comments turn out to be fake, are you surprised?

You don't need to manufacture consensus to make a popular move.

Two kinds of people support the repeal of NN:

People who make money off of it.

Sycophants.

The argument that “things were fine before” is stupid. Things are fine NOW. Why change it?

Eh I think your looking at the current uses of blockchain rather than the potential. Little e-coins are the first wave, realistically.

True, one company had the foresight and is attempting to make a free and unregulated Internet using Blockchains. Considering what is happening to the current internet, this company might be on to something.

They believe stuff like this:

I talked to a few that are under the impression that ending net neutrality will eliminate subsidized Internet access (Lifeline Program) for low income Americans. They seem to think Republicans are reducing wasteful government spending.

A blockchain is just a distributed database. It has nothing to do with net neutrality.
