December 14th is when regulations relating to the internet will be voted upon. The issue is extremely politically polarized. The shortest/easiest version I could explain to you will be glossing over a lot and missing a lot, but its something like this:
The regulations "claim" to protect the internet from everything that is bad, but this is misleading at best or flat out lying at worst. The regulations do nothing more than giving the FCC executive authority over the internet industry. If the fcc does not act in our best interest (which hilariously the people who are so against what is happening is calling the fcc corrupt), then the regulations will not help the internet or the people who use the internet. If the government or the FCC chose to abuse these regulations to the full extent of their power, it could have far worse ramifications than what the doomsday net neutrality people claim will happen once these very regulations are dismantled. These regulations have the power for good or for great evil, but the fact the government cant really be trusted with matters like this, it's better they are removed before they are abused.
The people who support these regulations spread a ton of propaganda and doomsdays garbage saying the internet will literally end once these regulations are removed. This is extremely hyperbolic to the point where its flat out lies. I understand they may be passionate, and maybe they actually care about the internet (probably not, but I like to think not everyone has bad intentions), but what they are doing is having the opposite effect. I will not support something that has to lie to gain support; Especially to the magnitude which they are. I mean I've spent over a year debating these people and not once has anyone made a valid argument which wasn't laced with logical fallacies and lies to try and convince people to support these terrible regulations.
BUT to their credit, it does seem like those who in these political positions of power who are removing these regulations, also may also not have the internet's best interests in mind either. But just because the people who are removing the regulations may not be doing whats best for all of us, that doesn't make the regulations they are removing to be good regulations. (that's the logical fallacy they perpetuate. its because potentially bad people are doing this, that MUST MEAN that what they are removing is good. this is NOT TRUE)
For the internet to get better, these regulations do need to be removed, BUT if they do nothing to actually help the internet after removing these regulations, it likely will have no positive benefit to us. Another logical fallacy these people push is that if it does not benefit us, then it MUST be a detriment to us, again this is not true. Its a possibility the internet may get worse, but just because it didn't get better doesn't mean it will get worse. Honestly, the internet in america is already at rock bottom, there isn't much worse of a place for it to go.
So both the people supporting these regulations and the people opposing these regulations are both liars and both don't give a **** about the internet and both are ******* idiots.
I think I'd have more sympathies for the people supporting the regulations (especially because back in 2014 I did) if they weren't trying so hard to push lies and logical fallacies to garner support from people who don't know or understand anything about the internet or politics. Also, if they had any real plan or solution on how to actually make the internet better (their plan is literally "make the government do it"..... I can't even...), it would be easier to support their cause.
There are real solutions to making the internet better, and the best one does involve removing these regulations, then making the states responsible for laying fiber infrastructure, and then 3rd party companies share those state lines to provide internet service over them, then make regulations to not allow the state much any control over the lines (net neutrality for the states not the isps), and let free market competition regulate the isps. But most the net neutrality regulation supporters are nothing more than antifa retards who just want to smash things because they feel they have been wronged rather than come up with REAL solutions to real problems.
