Why You Should Be Concerned About Net Neutrality

In 2015, the Federal Communications Commission enacted legislation banning the use of “blocking and throttling of consumer-sought legal content online.” Recently, the new chairman of the FCC, Ajit Pai, declared that he supports the repeal of net neutrality. While he suggests the repeal will allow companies more investment opportunities and growth, the effects would be quite the opposite.

The importance of friendly competition is being diminished by the overwhelming desire to spare children’s feelings. Parents have begun to shelter their kids from the most basic lesson in life: failure. Instead of teaching them the importance of working hard to succeed in America, we’ve started awarding them for just showing up. Yes, I’m referring to the participation trophy.
