It's a luxury, like owning a vehicle or TV, it is not essential to your living a healthy life, so it should not be included in your basic human rights.

But if its more of a question of governments or companies purposely preventing access to the internet or parts of it, then I don't really know. I can understand the restricting of websites which contain illegal content (eg snuff movies or child porn) - but that's about it.


Well, the "not essential to a healthy life" part, though worth exploring, is another matter entirely. To avoid more walls upon walls of text, I'll just summarize: The more prevalent the internet already is in your country, the more your society is going to hinge on access to it.

Would we suffer a Class 2 planetary apocalypse of complete societal collapse and lose all post-industrial age knowledge if we suddenly managed to completely exhaust our current supply of internets? Obviously not, but both civilian and government infrastructure increasingly rely on it these days as their primary means of communication, information, and to ease the burden and monotony of tedious and mundane - but still vital - tasks.

You kids of today... I remember when I was a lad and there was no internet.

We actually went outside to play when not on our old 8bit Comps or Consoles :P

No. Using that ideology, electricity should also be a right since it is taken more for granted than the internet is.

I agree 100% with Neo7 with his statement,also the internet could never become a so called Human Right,the Human Rights of today are walked on all over, take a look around at different country's i.e. North Korea is going to launch a 3 section ballistic missile (it hopes)and the North Korean people are starving where's the BRAINS in that.

Also for another example i am against the banning and people not being able to use the Internet,CHINA,IRAN and other country's that block people from using the internet.

The INTERNET should be there for every Human being to use,its the most powerful tool for inter-country chat like we do on CHU along with the so called FREE WORLD,so getting back to the Topic of the Internet being a Human right,i would say that there is far more important Human Rights that need to be looked at.
