Violence/Genocide: Do not condone violence or genocide on a person or group of people. You are free to attack a person or groups ideas but you are crossing the line when calling for violence. This will be heavily enforced in threads with breaking news involving victims.

Opinion Internet is a utility. Govt should provide free internet for all homes

    You have a fundamental human right to other people's labor. Don't you forget that

    If you can't even keep net neutrality, guaranteed internet is a pipe dream.

    yeah because the government pays for all other utilities like power and gas and telephone......

    another stupid thread by you

    net neutrality was garbage and it was removed and the internet was just fine....

    Also, net neutrality only ever benefited the huge companies that rode on broadband.

    The internet allows someone to learn whatever they want for dirt cheap. You have access to the near totality of human knowledge at your fingertips. Just because most people use the internet in a retarded manner doesn't mean that the technology isn't highly valuable.

    You can learn athletic programming, prehab, nutrition, writing skills, editing, story plotting, drawing, online sales, etc. all from home. And then do online dating during your break lol. It's like having millions of books at your disposal.

    That said, I use notebooks and pencils quite a lot still.

    This day and age, Internet is almost as essential as other commodities. The ISPs should have some affordable Internet plans so everyone can be connected.

    You really got a thing for the orange man, even though im not even american and i didn't mention the guy. Anyway i would liie to be as naive to think the government doesn't control or see what people are doing in the world web. I guess snowden was just a terrorist

    Now you're moving the goalposts. The point was that the government doesn't tell Jack Dorsey how to run his business. If you have an issue with "cancel culture" you must lay the blame at the feet of those actually responsible: the plutocrat class.

    They can’t afford to live in NYC, and are a neglected class.

    Giving a family free or heavily subsidized internet is not a big cost, much less soo that subsidizing farmers. I have a small business and yet I am getting handouts like farmers, but I am not opposed to small family farms getting subsidies.

    We don’t even provide free electricity or water. Let’s start with the actual basics.

    Here you can use the internet for free at the unemployment office to send/recieve emails and apply for jobbs. Ofc social media and porn and shit is blocked so you dont spend your time doing stupid shit and taking up time on the computers wich other might need.

    Its a perfect compromise as it makes you go to the unemployment office, a place you probably should be if you cant afford the internet.

    Also last year when i was in oslo i noticed they had a public wifi net there you could request password for on your phone. Dunno if it covers all of oslo but it was horribly slow wich is also a nice incentive to only use it for important stuff and not goofing around on

    Yeah internet should be free because it is a utility just like electricity, gas, and water. GTFO.
