…because of the events of this “Thanksgiving Holiday” week of 2014, lets have a look at the word
spoils or plunder taken by pillaging, as in war
anything taken by dishonesty, force, stealth, etc.
to despoil by taking loot; plunder or pillage (a city, house, etc.), as in war
so, certain people wanted to be pissed about the looters in Ferguson
collectively speaking many are still pissed about the past looters of America. I’m talking about the original looters who took this land away from the Native Americans.
If you feel comfortable with this you have too much privilege.
If you woke up tomorrow, and your internet looked like this, what would you do? Imagine all your favorite websites taking forever to load, while you get annoying notifications from your ISP suggesting you switch to one of their approved “Fast Lane” sites.Think about what we would lose: all the weird, alternative, interesting, and enlightening stuff that makes the Internet so much cooler than mainstream Cable TV. What if the only news sites you could reliably connect to were the ones that had deals with companies like Comcast and Verizon?On September 10th, just a few days before the FCC’s comment deadline, public interest organizations are issuing an open, international call for websites and internet users to unite for an “Internet Slowdown” to show the world what the web would be like if Team Cable gets their way and trashes net neutrality. Net neutrality is hard to explain, so our hope is that this action will help SHOW the world what’s really at stake if we lose the open Internet.If you’ve got a website, blog or tumblr, get the code to join the #InternetSlowdown here: https://battleforthenet.com/sept10thEveryone else, here’s a quick list of things you can do to help spread the word about the slowdown: http://tumblr.fightforthefuture.org/post/96020972118/be-a-part-of-the-great-internet-slowdown Get creative!
