No, it's not a fundamental right. I have no issue with countries making it a legal right, though. In today's increasingly technology-dependent world, it makes complete sense. I'm not surprised Finland is leading the way.

Yes it is in Finland. And some other places too pretty much.
No, access to the internet is not a fundamental right.

You agree with my premise - laws are formed from philosophy and morals. But disagree with me because I use a philosophical argument against a law. I'm not trying to be picky - just trying to understand. I know you are intelligent from past conversations, so I must assume that I am misunderstanding your reasoning.

I said yes, but mostly because of my personal understanding of a right, as in nobody can emove your right to access the internet. As time progresses with technology and social contracts become greater I could only expect peoples 'rights' which were once privileges to be expanded.
