Should Internet access be considered a human right?
The Internet's place in human rights is the topic of the 9:00 hour of Midmorning today (May 27, 2011) and of our Today's Question feature on MPRnews.org and Facebook.com/MPRnews. Here are some audience responses:
- On Midmorning:
People who say "no."
- NO. Is this another so called right the freeloaders are demanding so they can confiscate more of my income? Likely another demand of the lefties. How about the word responsibility to earn Internet access. Exactly why I have never and will never vote for radical left democrat. What a bunch of losers!
- People who who answered with a qualified "no."
Derek Burrows Reise:
Susan Vos Anderson:
- People who say "yes."
James P. Berka:
- In a flat world (As Thomas Friedman coins it) it seems only right that everyone have the same opportunity at advancement. Those who do not have access to the internet will simply fall further behind as time goes on. They deserve the right to make it in the world. Having internet access is part of that right. Rather than think of the internet merely as a technology, we must think of it also as the sheer idea of "connectedness." In the modern world, to be connected is to have opportunity.
