Sorry-ass disrespect for history (1)

A nonymous Coward (7548) | about a year and a half ago | (#41607777)

There is only one basic human right: to be in control of yourself and your possessions until you come in conflict with somebody else's similar right. To be left alone if you want, to interact with friends if you want, to say what you want and do what you want, as long as you leave alone people who want to be left alone.

Nothing else is a basic human right. Not even food or water, if it comes by means of taking it from somebody else.

To equate any kind of internet access, let alone broadband, with human rights is insulting to all the people who suffered at the hands of dictators and despots throughout history.
