Traditionally the “Freedom of Speech “ only covered the use of verbal and visual forms of communication, its meaning clearly understood and transported by paper or mouth. Then times changed, the introduction to a faster form of communication, digital, was left out of the picture. In the United States the Constitution keeps the United States Postal Service alive, because it was and will always be a vital component of communication. It can be argued that none federally owned entities operate more efficiently, while it might be true, the USPS paid the cost for the backbone of the mail system.
Then how come digital communication, especially high-speed internet isn’t available to everyone within the States? Similar to Oaxaca’s plea for affordable telecommunication, many regions within the United States are blacked out from information. While, mail may still arrive to all corners of the Country, those that use Dial up or mail to communicate might as well be talking to a brick wall.
