Net Neutrality Preserves Freedom of Speech 

"On the other is a lobbying juggernaut that seeks to dismantle online openness so that phone and cable companies can rebuild the Internet as a gated community that serves their bottom line."
-Timothy Karr, The Corporate Deal to Control Your Internet

If corporations are allowed to rebuild the Internet as a gated community that serves their bottom line, it will be the end of free speech on the Internet.

The entire Internet will end up with arbitrary "moderation" and membership policies like those of private, for-profit Web sites like Huffington Post. In addition, your right to participate anonymously will disappear, (so you can be punished for the things you write).
