"Almost four in five people around the world believe that access to the internet is a fundamental right, a poll for the BBC World Service suggests.
The survey – of more than 27,000 adults across 26 countries – found strong support for net access on both sides of the digital divide.
Countries such as Finland and Estonia have already ruled that access is a human right for their citizens.
International bodies such as the UN are also pushing for universal net access."
Here is another example of how the Politically Correct Thought Police skew their case.
Just step back from this a moment and think it through. In most nations anyone who can afford the equipment needed to support internet access can access the internet.
The kind of nations that restrict internet access are not likely to change their position because of a BBC survey the outcome of which was determined by asking questions that prompted the required response.
The majority of people who do not have internet access have more urgent priorities such as getting enough food, adequate shelter and clean water to drink. They might also be concerned with the problem of dodging the guys with AK47s.
So when we look at it from that perspective lack of internet access is not such a big deal perhaps
