Perhaps "The Great Wave off Kanagawa" by Hokusai would be a better 
visual image for the problems of Internet 

This shows fishermen rowing hard to get their catch to market, with 
the boats about to be swamped by a large wave. Mount Fuji is seen 
serene in the background.

In this case:

Rowers: Internet filter proponents,
Mount Fuji: tranquil ideal Internet they are trying to reach,
Great wave: real Internet about to engulf them.
