Internet access is NOT a human right

I totally agree with Vinton Cerf that Internet access is NOT a human right, not only because it’s more of an enabler, tool or technology (a means to an end), but more importantly because if we set our standards this low to include things like hybrid cars and mineral water (instead of freedom to travel and clean water), human rights will no longer be universal and our high ground more difficult to hold, leaving “freedom fighters” with an impossible mission to accomplish.
