D: Hello everyone, my name’s Daniel and today we’re gonna be playing: D: ‘Can you survive an RPG game?’ D: Thi– *Ironic fake internet ad* D: Did you dislike that? D: Well, you better get used to it if the new FCC policy goes through. H: Uh… new what policy? D: So basically what FCC’s trying to do is is they’re trying to get rid of net neutrality D: and… H: Okay, wait, what’s net neutrality? D: Oh, sorry. D: I thought you used the internet so you would know this by now. *both laughing* D: The net neutrality is the principle that D: the internet service providers and governments regulating most of the internet D: must treat all the data of the internet the same D: and do not discriminate or charge differently by users, content, websites, platforms, applications… D: So net neutrality basically means allows us to have an open internet. D: Where I can make a website, you can make a website, D: we can all just do whatever we want… D: without having to worry about restrictions or lags on certain websites D: or having… D: companies make regulations. D: But FCC wants to get rid of that. H: Um… Why would that be a problem? D: Next time you’re on YouTube, any entertainment access you try to get, D: it’s gonna lag, because all of the data’s D: gonna go to other people, or other websites. D: So if you want to watch a YouTube video, nah D: you can’t watch Markiplier making fun of gaming videos. D: You can’t watch Stephen being Stephen without having to pay a fine. S: Mmmm… Well, I mean, like, who would watch Markiplier? *insert sounds of the cinnamon roll that is Hosuh losing it* D: Um, dude, I love Markiplier, so… you know… D: Okay, well, with the formalities on side, I know D: everyone has probably heard of net neutrality by now. D: I don’t want to bore you guys with the same thing. It’s basically D: people don’t want it to disappear. It’s a law that allows D: us to access anything we want. If you want to watch D: porn on the internet, you can without having to D: pay an extra ten dollars a month for it. You know, it’s it- D: it just gives you that extra freedom. S: What about PornHub Premium? *stifled laughter* D: PG 13, Stephen. PG 13. *laughter* S: Not that I would know- *more laughter* D: “Not that I would know- -anything about that…” S: Okay, fine, but I don’t do none of that crap- S: Yeah, you’d have to pay before man. It’s weird. S: ‘Cause it’s like, “Hey honey, why do you have S: a 15 dollar subscription to-” S: “I don’t know whatever- some fake website..” D: And do you really want that? *laughter* D: That should be our slogan! D: “Do you really want your wife to see your $15 porn subscription fee?” *cute laughter omg* D: But, you know, instead of this being like all of the other videos D: that have come up so far being like “Oh, yeah that’s a terrible thing that they’re doing.” D: I want to give them a fair chance to argue their point. D: You know what I mean? H: Uh… S: So, you’re gonna bring people who support the undoing of net neutrality? D: So there’s this guy, Ajit Pai. D: He’s like the chairman of FCC and he’s like the ‘forerunner’ of dismantling net neutrality. S: Mhm. D: And his argument is that ‘the internet is outdated’. D: The internet can become a business. Ultimately for consumers, that’s better because if it becomes a business, D: then it’ll become ‘faster and more innovated, etc.’, etc. D: What do you guys think about that argument? H: I’m actually quite content with what we have right now. S: How can you make it better? S: Websites aren’t gonna change just because now you have to pay for it. S: It’s just gonna limit so many people from having access to other people around the world. S: And if America starts doing this, everyone else is gonna also start doing it. S: America, stop being such a bad role model! Get your act together! S: You’re the drunk uncle at this Thanksgiving dinner. *laughter* D: Here’s a quote from Ajit Pai. D: He says, “So I’ve been talking to a lot of companies. D: ‘Look, we want to be able to invest in those networks, especially in rural and low income urban areas, D: but the more heavy-handed the regulations are, D: the less likely we can build a business case for it.'” S: What? So you’re pretty much saying “Let’s spy on people so we can target them and their demographic.” D: Yeah, what he’s saying, he admitted to this. D: He’s saying that they’re giving, D: they’re allowing Comcast, AT&T or Verizon to have access to what people see. H: I feel like he’s treating people as objects and numbers. D: Yeah. H: With all these companies being able to monitor our everyday lives and what we watch, H: in which they could use to create reliable statistics may come in handy, H: but we’re not numbers. D: Yeah, and… S: And that’s another thing though. S: If this net neutrality is undone, would advertisements just disappear altogether S: because then everyone gets a portion of the internet bill, I guess? D: Ahh… S: For these certain websites? D: You see, no because what Comcast and Verizon would do is they would make for example YouTube, to give them 30 million dollars so that their internet access increases. D: And that means, (S: Oh.) D: YouTube then now has to go like, D: “Oh alright, I guess we gotta make our customers pay, since we have to pay for this.” S: Yeah, so it’s pretty much just benefitting everyone except for the people paying the bill. D: Yep, basically. S: This is not a good thing, net neutrality needs to stay. S: And unfortunately as a Canadian, we can’t do anything about it. S: So Americans, STOP LETTING POLITICIANS stuff their pockets full with your money. S: Don’t do this! S: Vote no on the FCC prop! D: You know in the end, it really comes down to what you want. D: Do you want to pay more for whatever you are getting? D: And allow trafficking to be distributed by big corporations? D: If so, don’t do anything and let them repeal it. S: DON’T SAY THAT, OH MY GOD. S: Don’t even use sarcasm, people are gonna take that as… real. D: But if not, go complain. D: If America does it, I can tell you right now; Canada’s gonna follow on along really close. H: And then eventually the world. D: And then… THE WORLD. D: And if you guys want net neutrality to stay, D: go to the links in the description below. D: Fill out some of the forms, call your governments, call your senators. D: Do everything you can. Just even one website, one complaint will go a long way. D: ‘Cause if everybody does it, I think we can make a big difference. D: Thanks for watching. D: I will see you guys in the next video. D: Bye!
