As expected, Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, joined Democrats in voting to overturn the FCC’s controversial decision.

    Free speech is a universal value, and net neutrality is an essential part of free speech and access to the internet. All democracies should call for constitutional reform to ensure media freedom and prevent governments and oligarchies from monopolizing the media, the internet and all other channels of communications. In addition, all people must be protected against enforced disappearance, torture and other forms of abuse, and absolute law must take precedence over international law and the constitution.
