The importance of information technology has grown exponentially over the last several decades not only in the United States of America but throughout the entire world. The issue of freedom on the Internet has become more and more prominent in recent years as corporations are attempting to control individuals access to the worldwide network of information. In the battle for net neutrality, people have been in support of both sides. Members who are in favor of net neutrality believe that it is necessary to protect our populations access to information.
Political action committee and a grassroots political organization End Citizens United has taken a public stance in support of net neutrality. The executive director of the political organization of Tiffany Muller believes that it is important for the American people to have unfettered access to the Internet and that corporations should not have control over an individual’s access to information.
The recent decision from the federal communications commission has raised significant controversy as they were in favor of corporate control over our nation’s access to the Internet. This has been said to be a blatant disrespect to the American people as popular sentiment is significantly in favor of net neutrality. End Citizens United has targeted this issue as an area to support in an effort to gain greater interest in our nations young voters.

The impact of the decision from the federal communications commission will allow telecommunication companies to limit the access to specific websites posted on the Internet. An example would be if a cable company was able to charge you additional money in order to watch streaming video content over your network. Members of the Republican Party in the United States of America believe that net neutrality is an unnecessary regulation that is being imposed on our nation’s corporations. They believe that net neutrality will not significantly affect the population’s ability to access the information that they want. Democratic candidates believe that corporations will use this in order to unfairly charge consumers for access to information that they are currently receiving without publications.
End Citizens United has taken this opportunity to vocally support net neutrality as it is one of the most important public policies in the minds of the millennial generation. Political survey results have shown that our nations youngest generation of voters are more vested in the freedom of the Internet than any other generation. Tiffany Muller, the president of End Citizens United, believes that by supporting net neutrality, she will be able to help increase voter turnout of the millennial generation during this year’s midterm election cycles. This would be important if she hopes to achieve the organization’s aim of eliminating the influence of corporate special interest groups and political action committees from our nations democratic system.
