The radical, socialist Democrats of today believe that everything — except what’s in the Constitution — is a right.
“It’s a basic human right” has actually become a common talking point for politicians like 2020 candidate Bernie Sanders who wants to give any and everything away for “free.” What so many people have yet to realize is that there are no free lunches. Nevertheless, Sanders has no problem deceiving mass amounts of Americans for his own political gain.
Reports from Fox News confirm that Sanders is back at it again. On Friday, the socialist’s campaign put out a plan to give free internet access to everyone. According to Sanders, high-speed internet access is a “basic human right” and presently too expensive.
A Closer Look at Sanders’ Plan for “Free” High-Speed Internet
Per Sanders’ proposal, treating high-speed internet like “the new electricity” is an advisable step forward. In between taking aim at various telecommunications companies, Sanders also states that consumers shouldn’t have to pay fees for internet access or deal with “complex contracts.”
The madness doesn’t stop there, however. Sanders’ “free” high-speed internet plan moreover involves weaponizing the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to determine how various companies provide internet access to consumers. The 2020 socialist additionally plans to revoke data limits and disallow the provision of different content from service providers.
Unfortunately, there is a segment of Americans who believe that Bernie Sanders’ proposal is the greatest thing since sliced bread. Folks with this mindset have yet to look between the smoke and mirrors of “free stuff” and uncover the massive amount of attached strings.
Is High-Speed Internet Access a “Basic Human Right?”
Any honest and sane American knows that having access to the internet is not a “basic human right.” Internet access is a luxury and while there’s no denying that it can make life easier, it’s not a human right. Individuals who want high-speed internet access can budget out a way to pay for it…or they can go to the local Starbucks nearby.
This leftist notion that any and everything is a “basic human right” and should, therefore, be free is dangerous. The narrative that Bernie Sanders and others put out is merely a smokescreen for full-blown socialism and ultimate government power. If the folks who love Sanders so much were actually forced to live in a socialist society, they’d wish that worrying about high-speed internet access was their only problem.
