I've just read this jacobin article

https://www.jacobinmag.com/2017/04/internet-privacy-data-collection-trump-isps-fcc/

Its was really sound for me because it touches stuff I been thinking recently and is very concerning to us all

The biggest issue is how do we make the need for a public/social internet the big issue it needs to be?

I have been thinking that the internet has become a basic need like water or electricity and I imagine lets say every six counties, three states there will be a public backbone and a server/cloud for the locals and services like google or facebook will be subscriber based.

Millions of people live just fine without the internet, sure its nice to have and can save/waste your time but you do not need it to survive. The internet is not a basic need.

Nope, Internet helps to improve life of people and democracy but put as a basic need is pretty insane.

It isn't like food or shelter but to make a decent buck these days it really helps. If you can't even send emails that really limits your career opportunities Not just talking about tech related jobs either. College would be probably out of the question as well if you didn't have internet.

Granted there are tons of ways to access the web for free if you don't have the funds to pay an ISP. It is just more of a hassle.
