In the days ahead, if we abandon Net Neutrality and some big honcho in New York City decides websites like this one aren't worth putting on his company's search engine, or provider package, it could be lost.
These corporations very well could decide what is and what isn't available to be viewed on the internet. They could price the little guys out. It could be like Wal-Mart of the web. They could very well control most content, and pick what you can and cannot see, read or listen to. It'd be the end of internet democracy in the United States, where all sites can be accessed.
This all seems pretty unrealistic to me, but you never know. (See: China)
