Internet access is a human right, and ensuring universal access to the Web "should be a priority for all states," according to a new United Nations report.

According to the Los Angeles Times, the report -- which comes on the heels of a communications blackout in Syria last week -- was written by Frank La Rue, a special rapporteur to the U.N. who was quick to acknowledge the importance of Internet access as demonstrated by the recent "Arab Spring" uprisings in Tunisia, Egypt and other countries. Though the Internet has been in existence since the 1960s, La Rue notes it is its "incorporation into virtually every aspect of modern human life" which makes an unprecedented force and thus worthy of protection.

Communist globalist garbage.
The UN should be defunded and banned.

Fishmonger, so you seem somewhat misinformed as the countries most inclined to ban skype are communist countries. Your comment suggests you support these communist regimes.

The Internet being a human right? Please.The UN is a tool for the garbage like George Soros and his globalist progressive minions. Don't let any International clobbered together corrupt organization dictate to you.

freedom to connect? The Internet is a powerful tool for promoting democracy and human rights, and should not be repressed by any government or institution.
Freedom is a two edged sword always has been.
Fishmonger if your against globalization you lost already.

Sure. Like the fledgling democracy in Egypt eh?
Watch the Euro zone fall apart that will give you a hint to the chances of a global government.

inevitable maybe, but not really the point.

I agree with fishmonger when everything is a right then you have no rights. IMHO that is communism.

yes, it sounds like I took that quote right from "miniplenty" no plagiarism was intended

People that doubt the value and importance of the internet likely only use it watch porn and troll forums. And talk about letting some one dictate nonsense to you, turn off Fox, get a broader perspective through the power of connectivity. I'm not a huge fan of the U.N. either, but they are on to something here. Knowledge is power and the Internet is the single biggest facilitator of communications ever. People have a right to that knowledge.
