No Net Neutrality? We'll Make our Own Internet Then

The current uproar about the repealing of net neutrality is an important reminder: the top down, command and control power that limits our autonomy as citizens, has made its way into all of our systems.

It does sound crazy to build our own internet, but if you read some of our past posts on digital decentralization and block chain, or the article linked below by  VICE, you'll see that is already happening full throttle, just like the decentralization of our food system. And in fact, it is being built from many of the same principles the internet was built off of in the first place: by the people, for the people.
