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.
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.
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.
