This whole thing is unbelievable. I just can't wrap my head around how why the FCC has all the power over the internet. Sure, this made sense in the 90's, but the internet has grown to be a huge thing. The internet influenced $2.3 trillion dollars worth of retail sales in the US in 2017, compared to the total $4.9 trillion total in the US. 84.6% of America uses the internet. The average American spends 3.4 hours per day online. If you remove 7 hours out of the day (the average time an American spends asleep per night), that is exactly 20% of our day.
So if it influences almost half of all US retail sales and we spend around 20% of our day using it, why in the FK is it ruled by one guy and a voting pool of 5 people? That is far too much power for just a few people. Especially if they are completely ignoring what the nation is saying. Nobody with that much power should be able to ignore the public opinion. That's not how the US government was set up.
