Repealing net neutrality allows for virtual hit lists. Imagine a service where you can pay to block someone else’s internet access. Then the only way in which they can regain their access is by paying more than was paid against them. This could just continue until the user was bankrupt or they gave up on their internet use.
This will of course inevitably create greater discrepancy between the economic classes. It could also be used against political dissidents. Say anyone who protests for BLM gets a $200 Comcast bounty and anyone who supports universal Healthcare gets a $500 Comcast bounty. I wonder if that is actually Trump’s ultimate goal with this decision. Complete and utter power over those who oppose him.
I think we need to hit the Republicans with a preliminary strike. Hopefully we can garner enough support to wipe out the internet access of the top officials. Unfortunately they’ll be able to cycle through aids to basically act as internet surrogates, but targeting each new aid as they appear will at least disrupt their organization. Of course, we’ll also need to keep a fund to outpay the bounties set against our own politicians. We’ll have to be strategic and only outbid based on some function of the bounty against them and their political capital. Our eventual goal of course will be to gain the necessary political clout to restore net neutrality and bring back peace to the land. There’s a long road ahead, but if we’re smart we’ll emerge victorious.
