Mike Scheckles Posted about 3 years ago Should the internet be a fundamental right? Information should be a fundamental right of all human beings. The internet is how we are currently disseminating our information. Before computers and the internet there were books. This medium of information exchange was limited to the upper classes in previous times. The invention of the printing press casued an explosion of literacy and spurred an immense exchange of knowledge. The internet is the next form of this sharing of information. Massive volumes of information that would have required libraries to house can be easily stored on PCs, laptops, knidles and even phones. Whether or not the internet should be a right is irrelevant. People will DEMAND information and by extension the internet, until another medium has been developed.
