UPDATE: https://www.change.org/p/u-s-house-of-representatives-protect-our-internet-privacy-from-being-sold-out/u/19925177

The Problem - S.J.Res.34 BillOn April 3rd, 2017 President Trump signed a bill to kill the Federal Communication Commission's (FCC) privacy framework, which was created to protect the usage of broadband consumers' sensitive data:
  • Requiring internet service providers (ISPs) to ask for permission before collecting sensitive information such as content of communications, precise geo-location, financial information, etc.
  • Allowing users to opt out of giving sensitive information to ISPs
  • Only allow ISPs to collect basic service information
  • Notify customers within 30 days that their data has been stolen in a data breach
ISPs (Verizon, Comcast, AT&T, Cox, etc) have lobbied $1,726,288 against these regulations and have passed the bill through Senate 50 to 48 and the House 215 to 205. 

These votes were made along party lines but whether you are on the Democrat or Republican side, this issue affects the privacy of all Americans sets precedent for future privacy-killing laws being passed.  

The elimination of these rules allows ISPs to:
  • Monitor and sell all of your location data, search history, app usage, and browsing habits without your permission
  • Hijack your search results and redirect your traffic to paying third parties
  • Insert ads into web pages that would not have otherwise had them
Why Does This Matter

The issue directly affects your privacy in the United States, and will indirectly affect it outside of North America. 

The passing of this bill allows the government and corporations to take away your rights for the sake of profit, and it will begin to pave the way for them to take away more rights in the future. 

Whether your privacy and the passing of this law is a concern to you or not, everyone has a fundamental right to their privacy just as they have a right to free speech, a decent standard of living, and/or any other basic human right. 

"Arguing that you don't care about the right to privacy because you have nothing to hide is no different than saying you don't care about free speech because you have nothing to say" - Edward Snowden

    1. The ethereal subconscious collective mind receives input, that's what inspires the real changes manifested in our 3D matrix. Whether DC reads and responds is immaterial and inconsequential. Keep trying. Never give up. Believe.

  6. Internet privacy?
    Hmm. If Alexa is in your house. You don't have/need *any* privacy.

    If your smart tv is always plugged in, tou don't need internet privacy.

    If you Subscribe or Follow or Friend anyone or retweet anything you don't need internet privacy.

    If you show family relationships, actual birthdays, places or employment, places of education or make sure you are linkedIn, you don't need internet privacy.

    If you allow your smart phone to read you your text messages or to convert your voice mail to text, to don't need internet privacy.

    The rest of us pretty much know how to keep our private information out of willing hands by not accepting all of the privileges of giving them the information.

    It was said, they do not care about your rights to privacy because you will fill out a card in a mall and give an unknown business everything they need for a
    chance
    To win a car

    You will fill out a card and give everything they want to know about you for a
    chance
    to have $25 in free groceries

    If you freely fuss at or are rude to people you don't know on the internet. You don't need internet privacy.

    If you comment to someone who made a mean comment on a video that you didn't produce, its not your YouTube creation, but you think if they don't like it why don't they leave the channel; then you engage in censorship and you don't need internet privacy.

    If you have trust a device that's recording everything in your house, you don't even have the concept of internet privacy. If you use a blu tooth device, make over 5 cell phone calls a day or wear wifi headphones while working out, your developing cancer. I hope you have a robust heath insurance policy.
