    I think its unjust, even if shutting it down was to protect those innocent.

    On that line of thought, then it would be unjust to shut down a subway system to protect the innocent against a threat too?

    Nope, the internet is a global thing. even if they just shut it down in america it would still affect people worldwide

    Interesting point.

    But when there's a national security crisis (a national emergency), do you think it should matter if someone in another part of the world can check for friend requests?

    I don't thinks its a facebook thing. Look at how Egypt and Iran is able to inform the world about what is happening, even as attempts are made to shut access off. And in the day of skype and VoIP, it's a matter of being able to reach people. If we are in crisis, family in another country want to communicate.

    but in a practical sense, it really can't be shut off because it's a "web" of connections. pretty hard to truly "shut it off".

    They truly shut it off in Egypt.

    The population couldn't even proxy it.

    I don't believe we have a 'right' to access the internet, but I could not imagine the uprising cutting it off would bring.

    and no, I don't think they should shut down a subway if there was a threat. Then that's all it would take, is a threat to get your way.

    grounding all flights on 9/11, sure I understand, that wasn't a threat, that was direct action.

    if they want to shut down the internet to silence your people, then they are no longer 'your people'...

    Let me clarify, for argument's sake.
    Not a "threat", but an actual "uprising" against the "subway system", so to speak.

    And no, i don't believe that the internet is a "basic right" either. A basic right is something we need in order to survive, such as food, water etc. Not the internet, lol, although it sure seems like it.

    A better parallel would be shutting down all transportation systems in the US, cars, buses, trains, planes, just because of a threat to one subway.

    Does threat = uprising

    And what if I or anyone I know, don't use the subway?

    Is it the ny subway? What about when the subway car goes above ground, does that count? What if the state you are actually speaking about, doesn't have a subway? What if they just have potatoes like idaho?

    This is all too confusing!!

    What do potatoes have to do with the internet being shutoff? And when is it being shut , I still need to catch up on leverage, psych and burn notice!!
