A Cartoon That Explains The Really Big Thing Our Government Is About To Screw Up

…They’re a thing. We love them. We also know they’re hard to come by on the Internet. That’s why we have a team of fact-checkers double-checking everything we post, with standards that meet or exceed anyone else on the web. So go ahead and share your favorite thing from Upworthy with the full confidence that it's on the level — and that you’ll look really smart doing it. Not that you need any help with that, of course.

If we discover that something less-than-facty slipped through the cracks, we’ll always be up front with you. Check our corrections page for more information.

At some point this year (or before!), you may have heard about net neutrality. Some have called it “the free speech issue of our time.” I call it “Let's please, please, please not ruin the Internet.” You can call it whatever you want, but it’s really important to understand what it is. And that’s exactly what this comic will help you do.

Now that you're excited to protect net neutrality, allow me to point you in the direction of a place where you can do just that.
