In today's modern society, the internet holds great importance. It is often people's only method of communication with many people. This website itself shows the great importance of internet access in communication.
What I believe is that it is impossible for any person to excercise their right to freedom of speech without access to the internet. If the government has control over who has access to, and who can access what content on the internet, then they can limit a person's freedom of speech, and this is unnaceptable.
This is also important from many other standpoints. People need internet access to be able to purchase some items – it helps the free market by providing more competition from shops people would be unable to visit. It provides a wealth of information vital to students. It provides so much, that in today's day and age, it should be a legal right.
