Just say NO to Internet 2!!!!
Internet 2: Why You Should Avoid It At All Costs
The internet as we know it today has become one of the greatest technological marvels the world has ever seen. People from all walks of life are able to get online and build blogs and sites in which they can express themselves in anyway they choose.
This makes the government and big corporations very angry. The internet as we know it today originated from Arpanet and the world wide web itself was designed by Tim Berners Lee. The internet was never intended to be given to the common people. It was intended to be used by the military and government exclusively.
Allowing the internet to fall into the hands of people like you and me was the biggest mistake they ever made. Now writers, artists, programmers, and many other professionals are able to make money without the watchful eyes of the government.
Alternative news sites and blogs like The Conspiracy Zone and others have become a beacon of truth for those wanting to escape the corporate whitewash which has become the mainstream media. Major newspaper companies all over the US have begun to go bankrupt.
And millions of Americans are starting to pay more attention to alternative news sites than CNN and the New York Times. People freely trade movies and music which they purchased, causing fear in the RIAA and MPAA.
Yes, the internet has changed the world. But the government wants to shut it down. They want to take back control of what was once originally their own. They know they can't directly shut down the internet, do to an outrage on the part of the people.
So what they've done is create a corporate controlled Internet 2. Right now it is in its early stages and is only available on college campuses. But soon an attempt will be made to bring internet 2 into your home, and to slowly take away your rights and your ability to express yourself.
All the evidence shows the internet 2 will be used to crush the small but growing segment of home based businesses which have made a living based on the internet by heavily taxing domains and requiring licensing. Then only the big corporations will be able to flourish, as they do offline.
Kofi Annan and the UN wants to take control of the internet from the US and give it to countries like China and others who do not cherish democracy. It is up to us to fight back.
What can you do? First, don't fall prey to the propaganda that will be put on TV in the next few years that tell you how great Internet 2 is, and how its better than Internet 1 Second, start your own site and blogs and tell everyone about the conspiracy behind internet 2. Boycott internet 2 and stand up for internet 1. Your future depends on it!
