Does the existence of a digital divide violate the Declaration of Human Rights? If so, which articles do you think are violated? I believe the digital divide violates the Declaration of Human Rights. Article 19 states “Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference”. There are many places where the lack of technology or internet access is interfering with the citizen’s ability to connect with the world.Should the Internet be a right? Defend your position. What are the costs and benefits associated with your position? What policies or laws might be affected by your position?I don’t think the internet could be a right everywhere. To me the internet is a service that comes at a cost. My monthly bill and devices are paid for by me. For the most part, other forms of viewing information and communicating are not free. Nothing stopped me from obtaining internet service from a local ISP. We have the “right” to pursue the internet here in the U.S. Now I understand this may not be the case everywhere.

When a government finally approves of and supplies the internet it will be restricted to no end. I think internet access and computers should be implemented more in modern day classrooms all
