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.

I think he refers to the fact that some parts of the United States have not abolished death penalty, in opposition with the UN's position on the subject.

On the other hand, this right of life is very controversial matters with lots of fuzzy areas, so it's normal that some parts of the world have different positions on it.

As an example, I am against justice being able to pronounce death sentences and for mothers' right to abortion in the event of unwanted pregnancies, but I can understand why some people would say that being for both or none is more consistent.
