This morning, I listened to a conversation on MPR about whether or not internet should be a global human right. As I listened, I initially thought that internet must be a human right because people need access to it in order to compete in our increasingly globalized world. However, some discussed how the internet should be perhaps a civil right, important for economic development and communication, but not essential. I think that I lean more towards the civil right piece, especially considering that there are so many basic human rights that are not being met such as right to life, food, housing, employment,etc. So what do you think, should the internet be a human right, a civil right, or something else entirely. Listen to the broadcast yourself and let me know your thoughts.
