Net Neutrality and Spying

Stepping outside of the gameworld for a second.

So let me get this straight. The same companies that are currently embroiled in a legal brouhaha over their supposedly illegal support of the US government's net monitoring and wiretapping activities in the name of national security are the exact same companies that are currently lobbying that government to limit net neutrality by allowing these telecom companies to control where you can go on the net.

Scratch my back and I scratch yours?

You can either admire these Machiavellian machinations or become completely disgusted and do something about it.

Don't mess with the net.
Save the internet.
