Internet & Networking Since it's weekend, let's start with some good news we can all be happy about. The United Nations has declared internet access a human right, and has called upon all nations to not instate any laws that have the power to cut people off the internet, with France and the UK being singled out because they passed three strikes laws.

The UN's definition of a "right" is so comical that you would think the entire system was put into place by teenagers.

The UN can't give you rights any more than it can take them away. The UDHR is so at odds with itself that it is meaningless; the document is riddled with logical fallacies and contradictions.

The only way anyone can have the "right" to housing/internet/medicine/food is by taking away the rights of other people. The whole UN charter exists to enslave populations by picking their pocket with one hand while giving them handouts with the other.
