A Virtual Front Porch (wiki) to discuss why we have to pay for Internet access. Why we don't have FREE access. Government is not the solution, it is the problem. Repeal the 17th amendment.
Location : Virtual Front Porch » FREE Internet for Everyone

I read an article titled 'Maryland Governor: 'WiFi Is a Human Right'.'

  • It was on a Republican site, and the governor is a Democrat.
    • Most comments on the article and on a facebook link went something like:
      • Who's going to pay for it...
      • Typical Democrat...
      • Libtard...

Would the comments have been different if it was a Republican saying this?

  • Yes,
    • Same ol' "Your team sucks" mentality.
      • We see it all the time.
    • If a Democrat has too many wars,
      • We elect a Republican who runs on a "Let's stop all these wars" platform.
    • And of course, he continues the wars
  • So people get fed up and elect a new Democrat who promises "Change."

These were typical comments from those who don't realize We the People don't have a team.

  • Both teams are bought and paid for by the same corporations.
    • Both teams are using divide and conquer tactics.
      • This will continue until people wake up
    • And realize the Us vs Them
  • Is We the People vs. the Authoritarian, Statist politicians.

But that's not the real reason for this article.

  • Am I the only one who thinks outside the box?
    • Rather than think the way the divide and conquer propagandists have taught us to
      • Why not think of solutions to questions hidden in the statement.

The statement: WiFi is a human right.

  • OK. Granted the statement is false.
    • Human rights are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
      • And those outlined in the Bill of Rights.
    • God-given rights which can only be revoked if you violate the God-given rights of others.
  • Not government given privileges, which can be revoked at will.

So what questions are in that erroneous statement?

  • Why not FREE Internet for everyone?
    • Or at least, why not WAY cheaper Internet?

There are 2 problems with the USA that have prevented everyone from having FREE Internet.
Problem #1) The 17th Amendment

  • took away States' Rights.
    • took away competition between the states.
      • OR you would probably have FREE Internet right now.

What if the states had to compete for citizens?

  • There would probably be a state realize that if they could provide
    • FREE Internet
      • maybe even FREE computers to access the Internet
  • they could then provide
  • Producing
    • the opportunity for anyone in their state to learn anything
  • Resulting in those who take the effort to better themselves
    • to be a better employee, neighbor, parent, gardener, ...
      • or becoming an entrepreneur providing solutions to problems.
  • which would result in
    • citizens coming to their state
      • businesses coming to their state
  • resulting in way more taxable assets
    • resulting in way more tax income to the state
    • than the cost of the FREE Internet and possibly even computers.

The beauty of repealing the 17th amendment and having states actually compete with each other,

  • is that one state would try an idea.
    • Another state would improve on it.
      • Another state would improve the idea even more

You can't tell me that we couldn't come up with an way to provide "FREE" Internet for everyone and maybe even computers...

Problem #2 We haven't had capitalism for decades, maybe even over a century.
The problem with the above idea is that the government creates no good.

  • It would require capitalism for several reasons.
    • To create lower cost Internet access.
      • Governments mess up everything they get involved in.

The only way for the above idea to succeed would be for the government to get out of the way.

  • Help eliminate a few large corporations controlling technology.
    • Open source everything.
      • Openly share ideas, patents, music, ... everything.
    • Allow entrepreneurs to openly compete to fullfill the desires of the people.
  • and at some point we would have nearly free Internet.

Perhaps a company would provide you with FREE Internet, computer and smartphone, simply so they could track you, learn about you and market to you from what they learn.

  • Would you opt in for that?
    • If you say, no way Jose, then I have a question for you.
      • Why are you purchasing a computer, smartphone and Internet access so big corporations can track you, learn about you and market to you from what they learn?
    • Do you think facebook and Google is there as a service to you?
  • What if I told you facebook and Google is there to entice you to share your life so they can find companies to market products to you?

Would that help you rethink the statement, We can have free Internet access?

All I want you to do is stop playing politics where we all lose no matter which party wins.

Just simply...

I look forward to hearing your comments.

  • First you must sign up.
    • For a limited time, it is FREE.
      • At some point we will all have to share the cost of the servers.
    • This will probably be $1 for an individual, $20 for a company.
