You may have heard by now, but big telecom corporations are bullying their way to Internet domination. And to be frank, it's completely anti-freedom. Unless you're anti-freedom, help us spread the word.

And that’s exactly what this comic will help you do.

Some Guy Turned A Supreme Court Justice's Disapproving Words Into A Rad Feminist Anthem

The words "Supreme Court dissent" might usually trigger a huge yawn. But in the aftermath of the ruling that allows employers to deny birth control coverage to employees on the basis of religious beliefs, the word "dissent" got really hot, really fast, and I’m pretty sure Ruth Bader Ginsburg (the Notorious RBG) is the reason why. If you don’t feel like reading all 35 pages of the brilliance she dropped in it, it’s cool. This dude took out the best parts and added a guitar.

3 Examples Of 'Religious Freedom' That Come With A Side Of 'Are You Kidding Me?!'

Yay, America: where we all have the freedom to practice religion as we please, or to not practice at all. But where in that freedom does it talk about using religion as a license to discriminate against others? Something isn't right here...

They should probably stop looking at your dirty texts (and all the other ones too).

It's been a year since the whole world woke up to the U.S. government's massive collection of phone calls, emails, and texts of ordinary folks (and the occasional foreign dignitary too). What's the fallout? Well, for one thing, the Supreme Court ruled on June 25, 2014, to protect our cellphones from warrantless searches. It's good these guys are keeping an eye on it.

An uncomfortable truth about the web that makes it a lot less awesome than it should be

Here in America, we often take it for granted that the Internet is a good thing. We browse Facebook, watch videos, and occasionally buy shoes.

Then, at 4:40, we hear how dictators manipulate the Internet for their own purposes. And by 8:10, the speaker gets really real about how we're using the web.
