No one is going to listen to you. Besides your rant about FDR, etc. ( it will only push people away from your opinion) you're right on the money.

I don't believe education is much of a right compared to some of the more, well, innate ones.

OK Illuminati theorists go away ...

first yeah health care should be a thing controlled by government and not by corporations . cause you have no control on corporation and government can be changed by people.

Canada and Cuba are the prime exemple of how good a social health care is to a country. yeah they're is some major flaw ( the mom's that brings her child to hospital because he trow up a little ) ...

This would be a major leap in world developing since electricity ... but the project will probably not work because of people like Subby who are pessimistic paranoids against everything but corporation and uncontrolled market/ ( ooooh the irony ) .

I would hand my money to the people if it can make for a better world and meanwhile giving me the chance of having what I want.

U.S people don't know the weight a social health care takes off your shoulders. Knowing you won't go bankrupt for an accident is a priceless thing.

A free internet would be the same thing. it would make it a well of knowledge and opinions but western world should get a veto on it because undeveloped country could be easily misguided by it if some groups take over the internet in those places. They don't have opinions to begin with and the only opinions they have are from religions and archaic people.

And troll could finally be the most powerful thing on earth. and that would be unfortunate ....

It would certainly be a great supplement to education, yes.

The idea is a free, uncensored flow of information to anyone who wants it. I believe the freedom of information is a right everyone should have.

I honestly can't understand why anyone but fascist dictators would be opposed to this.

It's not about access to internet as such, it's about access to information. Information having existed for a while now.

I do believe access to information is a basic human right. The medium is irrelevant to me.

As much as I wish everyone could have access to the internet, and information. I have to say this is stupid. There are a great many problems in the world, and internet is not a right nor a requirement. Its just because its incorporated in so much of our daily lives that we find it hard to not have internet. No matter how you look at it, the internet is NOT a requirement of life. People are dying of poor drinking conditions and overall poor quality of life. What use is the internet to them? No point in looking for information if you are wondering when your next meal is coming from.

Don't get me wrong, I support the idea, but putting this cause over more beneficial ones is dumb and irresponsible.

Just my 2 cents.
