Like many people, I’m concerned about the FCC’s recent repeal of Net Neutrality rules. That said, I do wonder if maybe people are going a bit overboard in their predictions of how dire our Internet situations are going to be. All the wailing and gnashing of teeth reminds me of what happened when Trump won the presidential election and people were acting like all of America had suddenly transformed into a version of early 1900s Alabama. Yes, bad things could happen from the repeal of Net Neutrality, but I don’t think it will be quite the apocalypse that people are predicting. Our online lives may become harder, but we’ll survive, and if things really do go down the drain maybe we can find a way to get Net Neutrality reinstated.
