If the current administration is successful in turning the internet into a public utility, you may not want to rely on streaming media to get your Christian entertainment.
You may want to keep those DVDs after all…
The film industry has been moving toward an all-digital future for the past 10 years with streaming media and digital distribution of films in theaters. However, if the government is successful in taking over the internet, with the power to turn it off or on, or regulate content, then having a hard copy of Christian entertainment may not be a bad thing.
I’m not a conspiracy theorist. I’m a pragmatist.
No matter what side of the political aisle you reside, when the government controls anything, the implementation and management of that control is inconsistent and often incompetent. I’d give some examples, but they are so obvious and the list so long, it would take up too much time.
Since the internet is not “broken” there is no reason for the government to intervene, unless the reason is to control content. The government rarely intervenes for any reason other than control.
God forbid, but what if Christian entertainment is somehow thrown into a big bucket called “hate speech” and that is filtered by the governments internet utility. How do you fight that? Do you really want to rely on the slow machine of politics to make Christian entertainment available to you?
There are a lot of books I own because I want to always have access to them. There are a lot of Christian films I own for the same reason.
An all-digital future isn’t a bad thing… but it does mean giving up the power of access to others. If you’re not comfortable with that, then maybe keeping your favorite DVDs on hand may not be a bad thing.
Just in case.
