    There's no denying the power and usefulness of the internet. Is it vital and abundant to the point that we should see it as a human right?

    One of the most common complaints I hear is people complaining about is the service they get from their internet providers.

    Be it cable or cell. From poor service to snotty employees. Human right? Whatever you want to call it, reform is needed.

    Since the internet is little more than a giant billboard for ads and a delivery vehicle for paid services it should at least be easily affordable to anyone who wants it.

    Cue government regulations limiting bandwidth because of climate change. There is nothing these government retards don't want to control freak on.

    I am not sure if we can say. . . "human right?"


    . . . but sure, elderly and the disabled should probably be helped out, if they want.


    But. . . he is so wealthy and out of touch, he probably is unaware, the program ALREADY exists! :71:

    They rolled it into the Lifeline program.

    I am not sure you can have both though. I think you either have to choose a free smartphone (Obamaphone) OR internet and landline. Not sure though.

    Lifeline Program for Low-Income Consumers

    Actually, if you study the technocracy, and what they plan to do with agenda 2030, they want to get as many folks using the SmartGrid, and get 5G roll out as soon as they can get the private sector to invest. DARPA, the CIA and the spooks killed MySpace on purpose to replace it with their boys at Facebook for a reason. They will never break up Google's monopoly.

    It makes tracking and control of everyone, everything, and every last bit of society easier.

    When you are giving people money, do you have hold their hands, take them to the store, and shop for them also?

    :dunno:
