huh?

*looks at top of the screen*

oh, DA's getting involved in this? okay then!

yeah net neutrality is a bit difficult to explain in simple words. the opposite of net neutrality is when rich people/companies can pay to make their sites go faster for people, meanwhile poorer people/companies are stuck with slower speeds. making the rich richer, making the poor poorer, etc. net neutrality guarantees that this doesn't happen, and the net is kept fair for everyone. and -- yes, glancing over DA's page about this, if we get rid of net neutrality, providers will also be able to censor content if they want to / if they're paid to / etc. this doesn't mean they restrict access to like, dangerous/vulgar things -- rather, it means they will almost DEFINITELY just block opinions / people / etc they don't agree with, and don't want people to see, making it so the only information we get online is the information companies want us to see.
