[Gizmag] Free internet for all, plans ahumanright.org - Page 2

post #11 of 57
Despite popular 'entitlement' beliefs, the Internet is NOT a right. How can something that has not existed until the 20th century be a right? It can't. This is just a joke by those who think things such as entertainment, a house, etc. are all rights. FDR and his 2nd bill of rights would fall into this category and I am glad they failed.

I thought of this idea but obviously I am not qualified or experienced to do anything with it.

Why can't it? I don't think you grasp how important the internet can be to a developing country.

They wouldn't be using it to post on 4chan.

I think when rights are accepted and for how long have nothing to do with their validity. For example the right to privacy has not existed in many culture for the majority of civilization. EX: Religion and your community would always try to control certain behavior such as preservatives and other behavior they find "evil or wrong".
A more relevant example is the right to knowledge. This right by far hasn't been accepted as a right until recently thou some governments advocate against it.

People have the right to education. I think this would fall under that. The education system is evolving and the internet is almost a necessity for an education in the world of today.

I think there has to be some MAJOR flaws in this whole plan, or is it a con?

1) Cost of Satellite..

2) Cost to MASS PRODUCE the Modem which will connect to said Satellite... (500 Million modems is NOT going to come cheap)

3) Approval from Government???

4) Could one satellite feed everyone the internet without some major clog in data transfer?


Sound like a hoax or, this outfit must have extremely huge and deep pockets...

I am doubtful of them being able to raise the funding as well, unless they get several large sponsors. The article said a similar satellite sold for $25 million.

There is NO excuse for this, I find junk computers in the trash all the time..

You could make 2-4 computers just from trash! (I'd be willing to venture that Windows 98 on dialup is STILL working!)

You can buy them for $40 - $100, and if you can't afford that, you shouldn't be using one in the first place...

First he wanted control of the banks, then health care, and now the internet and most of you will hand it over gladly as you perceive as it will be "free"
