The Nordic nation of Finland, population 5.25 million, is making history today by enacting a new law granting every citizen the right to a stable broadband Internet connection.
"We considered the role of the Internet in Finns' everyday life. Internet services are no longer just for entertainment. Finland has worked hard to develop an information society and a couple of years ago we realized not everyone had access." said Finnish Communication Minister Suvi Linden, according to various sources.
they seem confused as to what a "right" actually is. the bill of rights are rights, the internet is a privilege. can't blame them though, most americans don't know the difference anymore either.
