բնօրինակ սփիւռքում(եւ մեկնաբանութիւննե՞ր)

In 2011, UN recognized Internet access as a human right. In particular, it was mentioned that states have to

respect online anonymity, adopt privacy and data protection laws, and to decriminalize defamation…

ensure that Internet access is maintained at all times, including during times of political unrest.

Well, I would like to add that you also have a right to not access the Internet. Especially if Internet for you is limited by Facebook, where online anonymity is not respected.

Nobody will punish you, fine you, or pursue you for that. May be some people will be offended, but, most likely, no one will notice your absence.


FAA - Federal Aviaton Administration, which defines US air traffic rules, in November 2013 revised limitations of use of personal electronics in the air. Which means that in USA passengers do not have to turn off their devices any more during take off or landing.

I would like to add, that even if you aren’t in the airplane, it is safe to use “airplane mode” of your device. You won’t be a reason of any accident: airplanes won’t fall, trains won’t leave their lines, ships won’t sink, and satellites won’t be invaded by aliens because of you.

Know your rights! You have a right for airplane mode!

I have this book, about “my fundamental rights in European Union”. Dignity is the first right apparently. I feel something about that.

I believe Russia should issue a book like this about Eurasian Union. It should start with “You have no rights.”.

This summer, accounts of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender asylum seekers fleeing Russia’s repressive law on “homosexual propaganda” peppered reports in the English-language media. Meanwhile, a different former Soviet country, Georgia, settled into a period of transition that, rights activists hope, will eliminate LGBT discrimination.

i think we have the right to know, if we choose, exactly what the technology is doing and how

so closed systems like windows and mac, i feel they abuse my rights and insult my intelligence

i give many thanks to the creators of open source operating systems and applications, without them i may not even be aware that i have rights :)
