“But Net Neutrality has nothing to do with that kind of 'censorship'.”

I already told him that but he ignored me.

Also to answer the original question, I believe that authority should always be questioned and should never ever be followed blindly.

I'd say it should be dismantled too but sometimes it's actually pretty useful.

This is what the rich would also argue about having their hard earned capitalistically reinvested, or sometimes just inherited money

These expereinces are nothing but disposable garbage meant to be consumed, strip mined for their "message" or their "morals" or "themes" or whatever their raw elements are and then moved on from.

That's a hell of a way to put it but yeah that's basically true. Entertainment is meant to entertai

AGREE. Anyone who forces rules on others and takes money that doesn't belong to them ought to be questioned for it.

This is what the rich would also argue about having their hard earned money taken away and giving to the bottom 10%.

This is not really me defending Disney per se but just attacking this weird mindset. what defines whet her something "matters" whethe ror not some critic or film professor values it? I seem to be jaded towards this as most filns and materiel that people see

once the nerd in me stopped celebrating the idea of dr. doom showing up in the MCU movies...

why? fuck? 1) disney wouldn't let anything like logan or deadpool happen. 2) disney gets way too much of a pass for being an "entertainment" corporation. like yeah okay they make fun movies that do

Like, something where one company owns all movies and properties and just owns pop culture and thus dictates the shape of it for corporate greed.

I'd scoff at you and say that the internet will keep pop culture independent except they killed the free internet this week too

CEO of Walt Disney Company is Robert Iger, a Jew, what do you think my thoughts are? Lol.

I was thinking more your reaction to extreme left-leaning Disney acquiring Fox news, but apparently they didn't so nevermind.

FCC Votes To Repeal Net Neutrality

Comcast has already edited their Net Neutrality promises pages. Since the FCC vote, they have removed:

- Comcast won't throttle back the speed at which content comes to you
- Comcast doesn't prioritize internet traffic or create paid fast lanes
- Comcast's Internet Essentials will make the Inte

That already happens.

I think you're confusing two separate issues.

I'm assuming you're bent out of shape about stormfront getting taken down. And maybe some other website(s) have had the same thing happen. But Net Neutrality has nothing to do with that kind of 'censorship'. That's an issue o

Why would he want to do that? We never had any interaction until very recently.


I'm not even entirely sure myself, but he told me several times PERSONALLY that, that is what he was doing outside of GT while Famov kept arguing against it which frustrated him.

I don't think it's personal eith

Net neutrality means cable companies cannot tamper with, or take control, over the internet. The repeal of these laws means they now have free reign to do so. Slowly, over time, our internet services and freedoms will diminish. Cable companies can now slow down not only specific neighborhoods, but

I don't think that the traditional way was completely right and I don't think that every little piece of progressive culture is right either.

I disagree. I would absolutely call myself a traditionalist, because it is how we are. Gender roles for example go back to our hunter-gather stage in huma

Hey #85 stole the 8values test I posted here first! Oh well. Here are my result. Rather close to last time really. Think I went a little further in the direction of equality and liberty though. Maybe world too come to think of it. Maybe I put some wrong answers since I'm so out of it right now.
