Internet Pioneer Calls For Regulation Of Tech Companies To Stop Big Brother

As social media corporations become more hostile toward free speech, calls are increasing for regulation to be imposed on those companies forcing them to curtail their policies of Orwellian censorship. The founder of the World Wide Web has come out in favor of such reform. “What was once a rich selection of blogs and websites has been compressed under the powerful weight of a few dominant platforms,” Sir Tim Berners-Lee said, according to a report in The Guardian. Berners-Lee is celebrating the 29th anniversary of his invention, and felt it was necessary to call out this threat to free and… Keep Reading

FCC Chairman Ajit Pai Slams Hollywood Celebrities, Twitter Hypocrisy

As the Net Neutrality battle heats up, rhetoric and hyperbole is escalating primarily because of supporters’ apocalyptic visions of repeal. Given the end of the internet is apparently upon our doorstep, Federal Communications Commission chairman Ajit Pai has found himself front and center. His plan to take down the Obama-era reform has met intense resistance from tech companies, liberal activists, and the Democratic Party. At an event at the R Street Institute in Washington D.C., Pai took aim at his critics. First among his targets was Hollywood celebrities, who often lean to the left. Pai’s issue was with their large… Keep Reading

Why The Net Neutrality Alarmists Are Wrong

The Net Neutrality debate has played out like many other instances involving government intervention. The free market is full of dark and evil people who live to prey on the souls of regular people, the big government supporters say. Business people live to exploit the wallets of individuals and swindle the poor in their creative minds. Their entire goal is not to live successfully and build a strong business operation that employs many people, but rather oppress all the helpless people of the world. Then enters valiant government, our mighty knight in shining armor. Our benevolent masters have come to… Keep Reading

Big Brother Continues Targeting Conservative Pro-Trump Facebook Pages For Censorship

The Liberty Conservative have done extensive coverage about the growing threat of Big Brother censorship, and we have even been threatened by these Orwellian forces. Anyone to the right of Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) is now under attack, and nobody is safe from the clutches of the surveillance state. The latest publisher to be subject to Big Brother censorship is ‘Other 98% Logic,’ a Facebook page known for lampooning liberals and correcting their fallacies. ‘Other 98% Logic’ had nearly 25 thousand likes and routinely posted conservative, libertarian, and pro-Trump political messages on a daily basis when it was targeted for… Keep Reading

Net Neutrality Strengthens Monopolies, Invites Corruption

When it imposed its net neutrality rules on the telecom industry, the FCC was fixing a problem that didn’t exist. While proponents of Net Neutrality have long claimed that the regulations are necessary to impose fairness for Internet usage, access to the Internet has only become more widespread and service today is far faster for users—including “ordinary” people—than it was twenty years ago. Nevertheless, when the FCC in recent months—now under pressure from the Trump Administration—announced that it may step back from net neutrality, supporters immediately began claiming that net neutrality was necessary to keep Internet access affordable and “fair.”… Keep Reading

Vietnamese Repression Cannot Keep Pace With The Internet

In an example confirming why conservatives and libertarians fight back against Democratic attempts to control the Internet, the communist dictatorship of Vietnam is cracking down on and even jailing those who use social media. The reason is that dissidents in the Stalinist-style country are using the Internet as a meeting place of sorts to organize resistance to the regime’s policies. Phil Robertson of Human Rights Watch said the Internet is a considerable threat to the power of the Vietnamese government because it gives individuals a medium to expose its repressive behavior: “Facebook is being used as an organizing tool, as… Keep Reading

Could Donald Trump Save The Internet?

Ludwig von Mises dedicated a great amount of ink to the role that ideas play in shaping society. Not only does his analysis illustrate why it is so important to educate the public on topics such as economics, but also explains the enormous danger posed by widely accepted political myths. Examples include various false narratives such as deregulation caused the financial crisis, that American healthcare costs are driven up due to “capitalism,” or FDR saved America from the Great Depression. Of course. these various fictions, which all enjoy the support of most of the “intellectual” class, all conveniently lead to… Keep Reading

Dear Oatmeal, Net Neutrality Just Isn’t Fair

Dear Oatmeal, As I was scrolling through my social media news feed yesterday, I couldn’t help but notice a letter you wrote to Texas Senator Ted Cruz. Your letter, in response to Mr. Cruz referring to Net Neutrality as “Obamacare for the Internet”, portended to explain to the Senator just how Net Neutrality works. I am not Ted Cruz, but I do happen to write for a couple of reputable online publications and put a considerable amount of thought into current events and policy issues. As I read your letter, two concerns formed in my mind: 1) I’m not sure you’ve really thought through the ramifications of the… Keep Reading
