Internet Responsibility: Protect our few remaining freedoms

The internet and the various media options within the channel are a fantastic method of promoting your products, staying in touch with family, and educating yourself on unlimited topics.

Do you remember the days when you could see your family or friends board their plane at the airport gate?  It only took one incident undertaken by people without any respect for people’s rights or freedom to create the intrusive airport security we experience today.  We all pay for the few that make bad choices.  The internet is an open forum that requires users to conform to basic acceptable traits as a member of our human society.  If we work as a society to stop the poor choices of the few, we can protect the open internet we enjoy today. 

As a member of society and to protect our freedom as a US Citizen, we should all stand up to people who use our few remaining open resources for unsavory purposes.  Let’s not take the internet for granted and protect the benefits it provides our businesses and society. 

Instead of looking at a car wreck and slowing traffic, continue with your daily commute as usual and respect those in hardship and those that need to get home or to work.  The same goes for those that use the internet for revenge or to make untrue statements with the purpose to create hardship.  As a society, we should call them out and not give them the attention they desire.

The internet should remain a pure source for good and those that use it for personal agendas and one sided attempts to harm should see solidarity in our society that the behavior is unacceptable and will not be tolerated.

We need more Knights in shining armor and more Joan of Arcs.
