Same on health care (insurance is simply the proxy for actual care in this argument), a "living wage", right to work (not in the way we in the US think of that phrase, but rather that of much of Europe and other socialist-democratic nations), ever cleaner environment (no matter what the cost, degree of diminishing returns, or the degree of "proof" science has so far provided), indeed even freedom from the consequences of our own mistakes or the effects of the circumstance of our early lives.
Edit: Apparently internet access too is a fundamental human right: http://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2010 ... egulation/
. If you dig into the report you'll find that the US respondents to the survey answered: 51% strongly agree, 25% somewhat agree, 10% somewhat disagree, and 11% strongly disagree. I'm wondering if people understand what a fundamental right is. I also wonder what respondents thought the term "access' meant. If they're simply answering that a government should not ban internet access, that is fine and good. But I fear, as we've discussed before in other threads, to many in this country and many other industrialized nations will understand that to mean "provide", as in one should be provided internet access as a fundamental right.
