Section 2 says:

No matter how hard you push and no matter what the priority,
        you can't increase the speed of light.

It should say:

No matter how hard you push and no matter what the priority, 
you can't increase the speed of light. You can, however, 
slow it down.

Notes:

Light travels more slowly through media such as glass, and the speed depends on frequency - this is how refraction works.
