The more I think about this, the more I see the shadow of State-Corporate collaboration aimed towards regaining the power of censorship and control of the collective conscious.

Look at the Ukraine situation... the only non-State-controlled media is the Internet.

Considering how much domestic coverage there is of the long standing Mexican Civil War (in a BORDERING country) and the potential coming Ukrainian Civil War...  Yea. It might as well be State controlled.

Great article!

Likens ISP's to countries, and getting data to customers is like international shipping.  Blocking net neutrality is like being pro-tariff. 

Don't you want a tariff-free internet?

Or do you want to go back to AOL and its closed market approach to monopolized content for its users?

oops!
The wish not to believe can influence as strongly as the wish to believe.

Who can escape their own cognitive biases?
