It can shut down entire websites, censor content, and disrupt the free flow of information that the internet stands for. It is a threat to our freedom of speech and goes beyond the US boarders as the internet is an international system.
We can't let our governments take control of the internet. Our governments are often being corrupt by greedy politicians being lobbied by corporations with their own profitable agenda. Not to mention many of the politicians don't even know what they are talking about.
