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.

When it comes to the Internet however, one could live a long and healthy life without ever using it or ever having access to it. So I really don't think your comparison is valid.


"one could live a long and healthy life" without a roof over your head, freedom of expression or freedom of religion. Yet those are somehow part of the human rights convention.

BTW: Which comparison? That human rights are not always necessities of life, but stretch much more than that? Or that internet is like a library?
