Martin O’Malley — the Maryland governor who daylights as a Democratic presidential hopeful, and moonlights as the frontman of a celtic rock group — has added wireless Internet to the left’s ever-growing list of inalienable rights. Speaking to CNN, O’Malley said:
Younger people are choosing to live in cities. They realize that connections to each other are making us better. That WiFi is a human right. That proximity is important to entrepreneurship, access to capital and talent and diversity. There is an opportunity there for us as a nation to embrace that new perspective.
How can something be a universal human right when it didn’t even exist until 1997?
