[Forbes] The United Nations Says Broadband Is Basic Human Right - Page 5

This is however unnecessary in most countries as you have defacto right to buy whatever is not illegal

That's.... just not true. Please cite your source for that particular distinction. It's just a wording difference.

I think I would agree to them.

If we're talking about "rights," then let's use the US Constitution/amendments as an example. As a US citizen, you have the right to bear arms. Does that mean every citizen is given weapons for free? No, only that you can purchase them, and if you have them (legally), that the government cannot take them away from you.

There's a difference between a right, and a basic necessity. Unless there is something more that goes along with something deemed as a "right," all that needs to be done about it is that no one can prevent you from having this right. But it does not need to be given to you by any specific person/entity.

What many people in the Western world don't get is that Africa is very quickly catching up in technology and in turn, bypassing old 'grounded' infrastructure on the way for cheaper more cost effective wireless technologies such s cellphones and fast wireless.

It is wheee.gif the internet is full of information and education so denying it to people is the same is saying someone can't go to school or take a book out of a library. It might be wrong information and terrible education but it is still information and education biggrin.gif

The UN wants total control in 3rd world countries and areas to squash and create social religions through media and adaptive monetary manipulation. The ultimate goal is to monitor all communication in real time to subvert common sense and welfare. No need to run cables. Since cell and satellite phones have an access to the communication grid, an organization such as the UN could feed disinformation to every under educated individual in 3rd world countries therefore changing political climates and start internal civil wars. If it was to their benefit, they could use the technology to stop civil unrest if it meet their needs. Just because everyone has an access to information does not mean that access is wise nor truth. By changing the makeup of beliefs, you could instantly control the politic, religion, social, monetary, and education system in a country. The New World Order as it is termed is only brought about by massive information overload and control,
I may be crazy. I may be wrong. I may be spouting imagined BS. But, you never know.

We can definitely agree on those 3 things, it is a definite possibility (in fact, a virtual certainty) that you are crazy, wrong, and spouting imagined BS.

And, contrary to your assertion, we do know. We know, for example, that the UN is an essentially powerless organization, unable to accomplish anything concrete without the unanimous backing of some of the most powerful nations in the world (at least the USA, France, the UK, Russia and China). We know that, without the financial backing of world governments, the UN has virtually no funds to do anything, including "install[ing] ultra extensive WIFI technology." The simple fact is that any operation on the scale of what you discuss would require extraordinary levels of commitment and cooperation between almost 200 nations, an obvious impossibility.

The New World Order is a particularly ridiculous conspiracy theory, clung to by those too scared, too gullible, or too foolish to confront the world as it is. I can only hope that you weren't serious when you posted this. Poe's Law and all that.
