At first I thought this was a bit overzealous, but after thinking about it more I agree with the UN. The internet is the 21st century of the newspaper or television, and cutting people off is even more harmful than denying them access to those things would be. This is one of many reasons I oppose giving any person or government a "kill switch" through which they can cut people off from the internet.The United Nations has declared Internet access a human right, and disconnecting people from it is against international law.
The recent UN report explores the issues of Internet access in great detail, both on the infrastructural level and as a matter of access to content.

Do you agree with the UN that it's a violation of human rights to disconnect people from the internet? Why or why not?
