Is the internet a right?

>> No.63804277

yes, but it doesn't pay for itself

>> No.63804298

Rule of thumb, if someone has to pay for it it's not a right.

I would argue internet access is absolutely necessary to live in the current year.

But we don't have a guaranteed right to eat or drink.
And those are necessary in life.
Hard to say mang.

>> No.63804315

Since you need the internet to pay bills, interact with the federal government and achieve gainful employment, I'd say yes.

Only retards would argue otherwise.

>> No.63804332

>> No.63804366

No. You have only three rights.
1. You have the right to have property.
2. You have the right to protect your property.
3. You have the right to own yourself.>>63804277

Anything else is either a privilege, or a derivation of these three rights.

>> No.63804412

You have a right to be free from censorship and invasions of privacy. You don't have a right to demand that someone run a cable to your door.

they are pretty much like books (knowledge) and telephones (communications) combined in the sense of:
"Do you need them to actually live?"

If we can assume the internet is a merit good, and assuming public libraries have internet provided free of charge and libraries are funded by taxes, does that mean that as a citizen, you have the right to internet? Or is it like >>63804366
or >>63804315

>1. You have the right to have property.
Which can be taken by the state whenever they deem fit.
>2. You have the right to protect your property.
In Europe it is illegal to use effective means of self-defense in your own home no matter if the intruders are raping your family, also, no firearms.
>3. You have the right to own yourself.
Suicide is illegal and a crime.

>> No.63804526

It's not a right then, it's a privilege provided by people coerced by the government either directly or with taxes.

Actually, the UN deems the internet as a human right:

>I would argue internet access is absolutely necessary to live in the current year.
If you live in Scandinavia, or Japan, yes (or maybe some other countries where you NEED internet for even the most basic stuff like buying a bus ticket).
Otherwise it's not really necessary.

>Also, the day my wife got pregnant was not because some niggers kidnapped her and raped her, but because she owned herself and let them do so to defend her own life. I'm so proud of this system.

If you want it to be. You can make free candy cane striped buttplugs a constitutional right if you want to.

Defining something as a "right" like it's an objective moral thing dictated by GOD is fucking stupid.

>> No.63804929

As opposed to your cucked multiracial nightmare state currently invaded by africans and mexicans in which non-whites are the majority and women are brainwashed by media into fucking negros? I see, duly noted.

Literally the only thing america has right is guns, you should be ashamed of everything else.

All of these lead to prefering safety over freedom, or rather, perceived safety since muhammad will stab you no matter the law.

Internet is a right but that doesn't mean it's free.

Plus, you do not *need* the internet to live. But you surely are at extreme disadvantage

Hell I never use the internet and I'm look at me!

>> No.63805123

where did the right to property come from? when we split from the feudal era where kings owned royals that owned servants who lived where they were told? In the new age without internet, you are basically a servant or less, as it is the last connection to outer society for many. That puts it as high or higher than "property". And a small minority of people "own" themselves.

>> No.63805128

The internet is NOT a right, I don't care what the (((UN))) says.
That said, ISPs have no right to fuck with PAYING customers. Right or not, if they aren't offering the service quality I'm paying them for, they are in the wrong.

Attempting it (not sucessful) isn't illegal. I know it sounds crazy, but that's that.

I think that really comes down to who is making the rules.
Rights are typically just gold plated rules that are more respected.
This generation thinks women's rights are different from human rights.

Is the paper I write on a right ?

Depends if your local SJW lobby declares it so.

No, but the world would be a better place if the internet was considered a (((human right))) instead of (((education))), (((healthcare))), or (((birth control))).
