The Internet - The first Worldwide Tool of Unification ("The End of History")

" ... Now I give you something that few think about: What do you think the Internet is all about, historically? Citizens of all the countries on Earth can talk to one another without electronic borders. The young people of those nations can all see each other, talk to each other, and express opinions. No matter what the country does to suppress it, they're doing it anyway. They are putting together a network of consciousness, of oneness, a multicultural consciousness. It's here to stay. It's part of the new energy. The young people know it and are leading the way.... "

" ... I gave you a prophecy more than 10 years ago. I told you there would come a day when everyone could talk to everyone and, therefore, there could be no conspiracy. For conspiracy depends on separation and secrecy - something hiding in the dark that only a few know about. Seen the news lately? What is happening? Could it be that there is a new paradigm happening that seems to go against history?... " Read More …. "The End of History"- Nov 20, 2010 (Kryon channelled by Lee Carroll)

Have you seen innovation and invention in the past decade that required thinking out of the box of an old reality? Indeed, you have. I can't tell you what's coming, because you haven't thought of it yet! But the potentials of it are looming large. Let me give you an example, Let us say that 20 years ago, you predicted that there would be something called the Internet on a device you don't really have yet using technology that you can't imagine. You will have full libraries, buildings filled with books, in your hand - a worldwide encyclopedia of everything knowable, with the ability to look it up instantly! Not only that, but that look-up service isn't going to cost a penny! You can call friends and see them on a video screen, and it won't cost a penny! No matter how long you use this service and to what depth you use it, the service itself will be free.

Now, anyone listening to you back then would perhaps have said, "Even if we can believe the technological part, which we think is impossible, everything costs something. There has to be a charge for it! Otherwise, how would they stay in business?" The answer is this: With new invention comes new paradigms of business. You don't know what you don't know, so don't decide in advance what you think is coming based on an old energy world. ..."

US regulator puts future of net neutrality in question

Deutsche Welle, 16 May 2014

The US Federal Communications Commission has formally proposed new Internet regulations. Net neutrality activists are concerned that the proposals could create "fast lanes" that discriminate against certain users.


In a 3-2 vote, the FCC formally proposed rules on Thursday that would allow companies to pay for priority access to the Internet.

At the same time, the commission said that it would also consider regulating the Internet as a public utility, which would provide equal access to all users.

The proposals play to both sides of the public debate over net neutrality - in which all data is treated equally on the internet - leaving open whether or not the FCC will ultimately create Internet fast lanes for customers who pay a fee.

Companies such as Netflix, Google, Facebook, and Amazon have all come out against the creation of fast lanes. Under a fast-lane system, companies would pay Internet service providers to accelerate the delivery of their content to users. On the other hand, the content of those who can't pay the fee would reach users slower.

Originally, the FCC adopted rules that protected net neutrality. But a federal appeals court struck those rules down in January, forcing the FCC to reconsider the issue of fast lanes.

A four month public comment period has now opened, in which Americans can submit their views on the FCC's proposals. After the comment period has concluded, the commission will revise its proposal and adopt a final set of rules.

Debate over fast lanes

After the vote, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) expressed concern about the move toward fast lanes, calling on the FCC to adopt rules that would govern the Internet as a public utility.

"This proposed rule leaves the individual at the mercy of an increasingly concentrated broadband market, in which the big players will be able to act as gatekeepers for online speech, deciding what gets seen and when," said Gabe Rottman, the ACLU's legislative consul, in a press release.

But FCC chairman Tom Wheeler told reporters that nothing in the proposals would lead to discrimination in Internet access.

"There is nothing in this rule, in this proposal, that authorizes fast lanes," Wheeler said. "The speed and quality of connection of the consumer purchases must be unaffected."
