I see no connection between the necessity of a free internet and a philosophy of legal and social change. Our philosophical grounding in individual rights is more in line with libertarianism than anything else.

Further, our country is not a democracy; the majority do not, and should not, have power. That's simply tyranny by the masses, rather than of the masses.

Rather than espouse the necessity of privacy and its defense, why not go back to our national roots and simply demand adherence to the law by lawmakers. They can do no more than what the Constitution (in the United States) permits, without exception. You'll find more individual freedom in telling your government to do only what the law says they can rather than tell them continuously what they may not do.

Liberalism, broadly speaking, strives for the maximization of liberty, equality, or both in spite of those two ideals generally working in opposition to one another. While certain branches think that codification of laws is the best way to strive for those ideals, it would be inaccurate to say that all do, or that "legal and social change" is the overarching philosophy of liberalism.

And while the US is (in theory) a republic, it is currently a de facto democracy/ochlocracy, especially post-19th Amendment and the ever-weakening system of checked and balanced branches being replaced more and more with executive branch privilege. Adherence to a circa 1800 interpretation of the Constitution would, as you said, do quite a bit to scale back this escalation, but not everybody's a textualist.

And to get the cheapest rate you pay up front. So even though you don't enter into a contract, you have to pay 1 year's service to get the cheapest rate.
For some, it may be the best, but for most it won't be.
P.S. Acanac is owned and operated by Distributel Inc. (who also offers cheaper, unlimited internet than Teksavvy).

Distributel was the worst ISP I ever had, blackouts constantly, kicked from server because the connection would drop while gaming every 10-20 mins. Stay away from Distributel.

You read The Histories of Herodotus? He made the exact same point 2000 years ago. He compares, Monarchy, Oligarchy, and Democracy to their negative counters: Tyranny, Aristocracy, and mob rule. He made the point that the worst scenario out of all 6 would be mob rule. The majority tugging people along at the expense of the minority is no democracy.

Anyway, this law is now as silly as ours regarding ISPs. I should know, I got served with a court order from something my roommate downloaded on my Internet. From a District court that had no jurisdiction over me, for something I didn't do. If people want to fight against something like that, I wouldn't stop them.

Was a Rogers customer a few months ago, I said I wanted to switch and they offered me same pricing tier but additional 30GB on top of my 60GB limit and moved my speed up a tier and I said..."NO". I highly recommend TekSavvy over Rogers anytime.

 

 

As for ACANAC, I have heard of them but never did really interest me because TekSavvy does fight against the big corporations in terms of service like Bell and Rogers. So...yeah...TekSavvy gets my business and their Customer Service is 24/7...can't ask for anything more than that.

 

And TekSavvy will require a court order before releasing information about a client and inform and advise the client on what steps to take next in fighting something like this. Really can't ask for anything more as they're going out of their way to provide help to the consumer and protecting their client base.

I do agree that our country is not a democracy, but in fact a republic. Even in our Pledge we have republic. tongue.gif Anyway, my main point is, how can the masses create their own decisions if the government regulates the freedom and flow of information? It is basically like North Korea controlling their media. State-run media is definitely not nice. However, I will tell you that I would rather live in a country that is run by the masses rather than run by a single person. Of course you are entitled to your own opinion, however, I would like to tell you that in the nation you want to live in, you are not entitled to your own opinion. Not because you can't, but because the information you are given is limited and controlled by the government. If I only gave you a map of half the world and made you think it was the entire world, you would believe it without outside information. tongue.gif

This is turning into the politics forum I'm subscribed to. tongue.gif Nice nice.

I will isolate one point for you...

Unlocking cellphones to change providers. Though the bill is extremely tough on breaking digital locks, the one notable exception is cellphones. Users would be able to unlock their cellphones as long they respect their existing contract.
So if I "do not respect my contract" meaning I terminate it prematurely (that being the only way to "not respect your contract") then I can get my bee-hind sued. It's how it reads...it may be a wrong interpretation, but it's how it reads...
